Default Did the front brakes and Left front lower ball joint!

holy crap 6.5 hours later job compleated, thanks to the great ideas of grandpa of how to get the new ball joint to align with the three bolt holes lol jacking up the hub, prying on it and what not it worked excellent was suprisingly straight forward, as for the brakes the pad that connects to the piston was under 1/8" left, it was Very thin!, the other side of it was thicker, but not by much, the passenger side brakes were in sligtly better shape. The rotors looked fine but were out of spec, so there replaced now, me and my grandpa bled the crap outta the brakes there awesome now, this week im taking it in for an alignment and im gunna get my ball joint tourques checked on, also at the same time i greased all the fittings that were under the car.
