Smoothing out the Ride

today we tackled the safety issues with Dottie.  New front brake hoses replaced the originals (!) that were beyond worn out.  The left side was full of cracks, and the right side had collapsed internally.  Braking is much more controlled and confident now from speed.  We also cleaned and repacked the left side wheel bearings and replaced the right side bearings and races due to a bad bearing.

Next up is the radius/strut arm bushings, new tires, and finally an alignment (which is what brought up the issues up in the first place 🙂

More to come soon!
