I think the important question here is "How much of the suspension and steering gear parts are you planning on rebuilding or replacing?". A teaspoon of sand will wreck havoc with a-frame bushings, tie rod ends, brakes, and most certainly the steering box. Now, that said, it is ok to blast the steering box if your going to dismantle it and clean/repair it before you go on down the road. The same applies to most front suspension components. The least you should do is carefully tape off the tie rod ends and so on with duct tape before beginning the blasting process. I would never use a tie rod end that has been blasted because I don't believe you can ever get all teh sand out of it, therefore it will grind itself to oblivion in short order. ??
I love technology.
