    Unless someone has a 12 bolt with 3.08's that they want to give me, Then I won't be able to make it on the 21st. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif Noticed that the truck was behaving kinda strangley while driving home from work today. Got underneath to investigate and found that the axle tube on the drivers side rear had started to pull out of the housing. Pulled out so much that it put enough stress on the housing to crack it. Entire assembly looks like it's smilin at ya when ya look at it from the back. So it's back to drivin the boring as '97 F-150. 2 wheel drive. Ugh. Till I can aquire a new 12 bolt. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    Finding a 12blt isn't the problem. It's a money thing. Will be awhile till I can afford to buy anything extra, let alone a new diff. This sucks.

    Bummer dude! You may want to look for a 14bolt instead?
    FYI, I grew up in Auburn off Bell Rd. Ever heard of Burt Lane?
    That is my old family road. We don't live there anymore though/forums/images/icons/frown.gif!
    Anyway best of luck to ya!

    If I get that part in to fix the blazer, you know you are more than welcome to go down with me & Bear. Right now I won't know if I will get that part in until later this week. Also I can check with dad if we have a 10 bolt somewhere around the shop, worth a chance.

    Kim...Thanks for the offer girl. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif Been talkin with POWERMAD about a set of axles he's got up in Oregon. Might make a road trip up there this weekend to get them. If I do, I'll have to go like hell to get everything stuck under the truck and running in time to make it down to Hollister. But if these axles are what he says, and all I have to do is drive up there to get them, then I'm on my way. They are even geared lower a D44 and a 12bolt both with 3.73's. Anythings better than the 3.08's I have now.
    BTW, when ya get that oil cooler line, give me a call. Get that thing stuck in there in no time. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
