Look closely at the condition of the metal front brake lines which run above the fuel tank. They sometimes get rusty. If these metal lines have bad fittings at the wheel cylinders (chewed up by pliers) or are significantly rusty, replacement is a breeze when the tank is out already. Not much else up there behind the tank.

Thanks both! Think I'll order the bushing kit for the stabilizer and that brake line just in case. Hoping Clarke's may know which O/D pipes I have from my vin plate...
