    Since i am an idiot and ruined my D60 carrier i went ahead and called Randy's ring and pinion and ordered a front 35 Spl detroit and the bearings and shims, seals, ect. Should be here on thursday. Now all i have to do is install it and finish up the disc brake swap on the 14FF and i should be back in business soon. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Yeah i figured i was either going to booger weld the piss out of my current carrier or just go all out and get a detroit. Now i am going to have to save money for when i start breaking the stub shafts and u-joints.

    What should i set the BL to when installing the used 4.56's onto the new carrier?
