    I only went maybe 20 feet in reverse about abour 5 mph. I was very carefull testing it first thing and the second i heard the sound I just backed on into the garage.
    I found a place wehere I can rent a inch-pound wrench so I can set it properly tommorow.

    <font color="green"> Silly question, but how did you manage to properly set up the gears with the pinion banging around like that? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif </font>

    On the road again!
    Man torqing the nut down was unreal /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif. I Talked my wife into using the floor jack on the cheaterbar I was using while I kept the socket from twisting off. All of that to turn it an additional 1/4 turn needed to get my 12-14 inch pounds of preload.

    Anyway I am mobile again. I do have a "surging" vibration at hiway speeds that I now need to rectify. (I mainly think it is the back output on the t-case. This summer for my B-day Ill get a MM part-time kit and kill two birds with one stone.

    Both my 203 trucks have what sounds to be the same searge. The one did it when it was still full time, did it with the mm 501, still does it with the MM shaft kit. Not noticable till up around 60mph more noticable a 75mph. Seems to have stayed the same the whole time I have owned the truck. The 203 reduction box I believe is straight cut gears and I think that's the issue.

    Re: this is what happens. . . .(PIC) (updated)

    It only started doing that surge and the past few years. Ill pull my front shaft and check all the U and CV joints.
    My front shaft has unbelievable slack in it. Id like to be able to do some descent Interstate driving in the future, so I'll try to track that down.

    Any unbelievable PITA's when install the shaft kit? Other than poor instructions that I've read here say come with it. It seems blissfuly more easy than redoing the crush sleave and preload /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Im not familar with a reduction box ill have to read up on that. any more info on that would be most appreciated. BTW thanks for earlier posts to get me over my mental block /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Shaft kit is easier to install then the 501 as long as you have a new pump gear for the shaft. The GM part number is included in the instructions. The shaft kit is great.
