    That's just entirely to much attention spent to detail. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    hardly detailed,
    just polished the knuckles a bit and primed and painted
    when I get to the rest of the dif it will be done really nicely

    I kinda took step by step images installing the parts Tim sent me

    once I get to turning the knuckles I will document that as well

    That looks very nice, I plan on paying that much attention to detail when the blazer goes under reconstruction pretty soon.

    as this is currently my only vehicle/daily driver I couldnt spend the time I wanted to do it 'right'.
    If you are able, I would start by finding a shop that will hot tank the housing and parts you are going to reuse.
    starting with clean parts makes the 'gussying up' part a lot easier then what I had to do piecemeal

    God this is so cool! I've never got to see my parts in action, everybody that buys stuff, I ask for pictures of their trucks so I can appreciate all the work that goes into whatever vehicle my parts end up on.

    What better person to put them to use than m j. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Oh and it's a royal pain in the ass to mail parts to a foreign country guys, especially in a box as heavy as to include spindles, kingpin repair parts, and u joints. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Those are the SPL55-4x joints as well, not too often you see people going with the greasables, but that's what he got and I was very impressed to note that they appear every bit as beefy as the 5-806x non-greasables.

    This is so cool to finally see it done. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I guess its nice... for my kind of wheeling... a great waste of time.

    The cleaning... no... the detailing... yes.
