The good news is I already had the parts. The bad news is changing the front brake flex hoses on the Civic was a pain. I’d say they needed to be done though. I’ll do the rears sometime this week.

Had to wait until tomorrow to do finish the tie rod ends because Moog neglected to include a zerk fitting with one of the two and I didn’t feel like going to the hardware store. Also even after greasing the one that did it still creaks really bad. Maybe I did it wrong? I’m going to try packing the boot before I put the next one on and see if that helps.

Oddly it wasn’t nearly as bad as it looked and probably could have lasted for a while longer.
