This past weekend I tore down the LF suspension on my 115C. I created a narrative and photos to help folks in the future. I'll be reassembling the LF this week and will have a follow up on assembly. Work included the replacement of the upper and lower steering support bushings, king pin, torque arm bushing, and outer tie rod end.

Very insightful. I'm sure you have already checked, but if not, the center steering link bearings probably need to be replaced too. If you look at my project blog - link in the signature - all the details are there, to include the modern bearings.

Good to see another Packard 120 in the pac-NW! I'm from N. Idaho, but currently live in VA due to being in the military. I'll be back in the NW in a few years though.

Good luck with the car, and enjoy!
