That is correct. By now you should be knee deep in the fun! Hope all is going great.
Lol it sure was. I just finished lastnight. Then drove it to the gas station. Here a wait for just an alignment is over a month. But earliest I got the 11th so that's good. Driving I realized I should've done the back brakes and rotors too I didn't know they were that bad so that's next and new shocks.

Taking off the caliper bolts to loctite is okay and good. I would not remove new hub installation unless you have a new axle nut to use. The three hub to knuckle bolts do not use any loctite so that's not a problem. And if you did not grease the steering knuckle and you already properly torqued the bolts you should be okay as long as you had the hub seated all the way in before torquing. I know that I said "real important" about the grease but maybe not "that" important if the hub was seated completely before you torqued. You just may have a harder time replacing again in the future.
You know what I just realised? My trucks front end doesn't have springs over the struts/shocks. Is it supposed to have them? I thought it did but can't remember.
