    Me too!!!! I started my 14 bolt last week. I have spent 3 days cleaning and prepping for paint. I got my caliper brackets last Friday, removed the hubs on Saturday, painted the 14 bolt, bought rotors and calipers today. Oh yea!!!!!

    I bought an angle grinder today gonna prep and paint it first. Then all bearings and seals. I am gonna wait till I can get a front axle that is 8 lug and 3.73's. It's a fun project little by little as $$$ allows.

    Re: It has begun!! New question 04/09 HELP

    OK now that I am this far into it. (I was gonna reuse old bearings, but I found a small crack in the race for the carrier) so new bearings all the way around it is.. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif I have been reading tech articles and old posts about R&P setup for about four hours now /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif, and I am pretty sure I can do this. Anyways I have a question. This axle has 3.73's I was gonna leave them, but I want lower gears for future tire upgrades. How much more work is it to go ahead and put in new gearss as well?? Thanks everybody.

    Re: It has begun!! New question 04/09 HELP

    Its as easy as driving the axle to a local shop and picking it back up a week later. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I heard that /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif very little money here to play around with either /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
    I'm at the same point, rebuilding the rear, looking for the front
