    <font color="green"> Installed the 5.13s in my 14 bolt today. WAY easier than the D60 was, every axle should have a removable pinion housing and screw adjusters for the carrier bearings! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It took about 6 hours and 8 setups to get to the perfect setup, the pattern looks absolutely perfect. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif The 60 took more like 15 hours total and probably went through 15 or 20 different setups before we got a pattern that was good enough to run with.

    Anyways, not much point ot this post other than to say if you ever wanted to try to set your own gears, make a 14 bolt the first axle you try it on. </font color>

    <font color="green"> I don't know if Greg's seen it or not, if he has he hasn't said anything. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    So yeah, both axles are home now, the 60 is all ready to install aside from putting new brake calipers on it, but the 14 bolt still needs some work. I need to get the brakes on it (should have some Derbinator brackets by Tuesday), then put it in the truck to check pinion angle and bring it to Greg to have the perches welded on. I also need to figure out what I'm going to do about shocks, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif</font color>
