    What do you think of the color?

    I also need to ask, does orileys or autozone carry the conversion ujoint?

    Does anyone have a part number?

    I have only found the part number for NAPA while searching on here and there are soo many orileys and autozones, even pepboys closer to me then a NAPA.

    Thanks Guys

    give them the # to cross in the all mighty computer. or ask for the book and go to the back and look up the joint. autozone has brute force and thay are good and i have used there book and its layed out easy to find and read.


    p.s. nice axle:wink1:

    Thanks Guys, Here are some more pics,

    do my leavars and springs look alright? i think i got them on there correctly but i dont remember how they were when i took them off the cores.

    i have about 1/4 in of clearance between my wheel and my calipers so i wont have to grind any :D (im not sure if i had to anyway but im excited)

    thanks again :waytogo:

    alright, ill flip my calipers over then, so the screws point up, i just read on here, that you were supposed to put the left caliper on the right and vice versa, so the e-brake levar dosent snag on anything

    thanks sweet

    you can blead them off the axle then but them back on.

    remember reading that some make it so the screw is horizontal so you have to tap it with a wrench or pull it.

    yep it is a 14 bolt FF, and those are caddy calipers. The arms and springs i got at a junkyard i found on car-part.com, and i used the caddys for cores too.
