    Funny how you had the front axle torn out and you see the driveway goes downhill......uh-oh......hang on.......the truck is sliding downhill. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You know you are happy when you even update your bio when posting the new stuff /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    As far as zcarczar, that's how I look after doing anything to my 'Burb (minus the flip flops) how can you stand those things?

    OH-YA! did the same last month. D60F, 14FF Rear, detroit-Loc, 37" Baja Claws, AGR RockRam, OffRoad Designs CrossOver Steering... etc. I rebuilt the king pins completely including u-joints but if I hit a small bump at low speed...watch out! Ever broken a center-link? ...it behaves the exact same. Any problems with your D60? I'll experiment with posting pics later. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Sweeeeet dude! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I do however have a couple concerns about the blocks in the rear....

    1) Gaaawd damn those things are tall! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I hope you have plans to ditch them.. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    2) It sure looks like they are welded to the perch..... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Or is that a shim in there? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    The Blocks are 6" lift blocks. Branndon plans on taking them out as soon as he gets some momey for a new 4" suspension lift, and no the blocks arent welded to anything.
