    Well I have been hiding for a little while. I found a good deal on a D60/14bff 5.13's detroit rear, welded front. So I jumped on it. I have sold my old axles/parts so I cant wait to be strong :D
    Here is the link to all of the pics: build up pics

    But casically ill give a quick view of whats going on.
    This is how I got them excpet the chromo tie rod was on there :D
    [​IMG]
    Started tearing down the axles:
    [​IMG]
    D60 shafts on top, 10b shafts on bottom (arnt they cute? :D )
    [​IMG]
    Then the axles came with 1410 yokes but I dont have the $$ for driveshafts so I replaced the yokes with stock sizes. Here is a 1410(bottom) vs. D60 1310 top.
    [​IMG]
    Started cleaning up the D60 some
    [​IMG]
    All cleaned up with some paint
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Started re-assembly (yes the caliper brackets are on backwards :doah: )
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Diff guard/ram mount, made out of 1" plate :D
    [​IMG]
    Ram mounted with tie rod back on.
    [​IMG]
    Added the diff guard plate
    [​IMG]
    And basically where its at now except the diff guard is painted and the 1 caliper is grinded.

    Hope to have the D60 DONE by friday, and the 14b wont take more then a day or to to clean up. Should have them both installed sometime next week :saweet:

    It came with the axle, but you can tell it was cut with cut off wheels :eek1:
    Its very nice though. the PO had it to go under the stock cover but the stock cover is super thin and had a big dent in it, so I just ground some of the material off the backside and it slid right over the stock cover. I tihnk it turned out sweet and it fits VERY well. :D

    Well after getting the other caliper grinded I went to pop loose the bleeder screws, well snapped the heads off both and there was no way they were coming out, way to siezed up. So all that grinding for nothing.
    Lets try it again :crazy:

    One a good note I did get my Sky arm in and on. Looks pretty bling to me :D
