OH MY GOD - Part II - You\'re not going to believe this BS!!!!!!!! OK, the adventure continues. Today I managed to get it all together except for the brakes....I'll get to that story a little later.... First, I tried to get the Rough Country front springs to mate up to the axle. After what seem like wrestling a Rodeo Bull for an hour or more, I got ONE side to match up. I left it at that for the time being. Later in the day (late evening actually) I got both sides to mate up to the axle. It took a come-along that I had to use in three different positions. But, hey.....that does not sound that hard, now does it. I reinstalled the turning knuckle with the new ball joints - the only piece of cake procedure this entire day!!!! I decided to start early to get the rear end in so (I had a little help for this part) rolled the new axle under the truck with the new springs hanging down. After some wrestling, we got it close and got one side to match up. Here is the MAJOR BULLSHIT!!!!! the other spring perch did not match up. It turn out the 14 Bolt I got was not even for a Blazer. I also noticed the shock mounts were on the wrong side......what else could go wrong. So, we removed the axle and I proceeded to the cart it to the welding shop. We designed a quick repair. Out of 1/2" steel I fabricated a spring perch, not the nicest job but it worked. I then had to drill two 9/16" holes for the springs. Then, I rolled it back under the Blazer and amazingly they worked. BUT!!!!!! the old spring perches were in the way of the axle U bolts. So........ I got the actelyene tanks and cutting tip and burned away the parts that were in the way, again, not the nicest job but it worked. FINALLY, I got the rear axle in. Now, the driveshaft is DANGEROUSLY close to comming out of the transfer case - dont know what to do about that but hopefully it will work for awhile. Now, I decided to install the 8 bolt hubs I got used. They used the same bearings as my 6 lugs so I kept the same hubs......and more on that later. I got the backing plate, hub and spindle installed fine, just like I've done many times before. BUT, this time the front axle shaft did not protrude out enough so I could get the snap ring on....WHAT IS UP WITH THAT???????? I got all the internal workings in, for the most part, and kept going. BUT, after I got it all back together, I realized I forgot to install the rubber seal that goes between the spindle and the axle. SO......I guess I am going to be removing all that again!!!! Any advice on how long I can drive around without those seals???? The last part, almost, was to reinstall the calipers. Well, I figured out I could not use my originals but I had a set of 3/4 ton calipers BUT......the mounts for the break lines are TOTALLY DIFFERENT. So, I have no brakes! I need to find new brakes lines AND FAST!!!!! Any recommendations for me getting them by Tuesday!!!! I lifted the truck higher and got the new 35"s installed. It looks finished but IT IS NOT. So, anyone else have a good day!!!! Please respond with help! My cell is 305-509-3300 Chris PICS TO FOLLOW SOON!!!!!
