Not sure how viable junkyard dust shields will be in my area. The dust shields on my 02 Ranger are nearly completely rusted away, and every bolt was frozen when I had to replace an ABS sensor on it.Went to the pick and pull yesterday, got my calipers of a 4wd blazer, with brackets they cost me a whopping $22 bucks. I didn't bring a socket to get the hub nut off, so no dust shields. Rockauto lists the dust shields for $33 bucks apiece, Mr. Cheap will be revisiting the boneyard for the dust shields today.
As for brake hoses, I am thinking of going with 86 Corvette hoses which have angled heads for a more gentle s bend.
