this happened after i blew the rear end, i kept driving to get home.
Thats the problem with semi floating axles. That wouldnt happen with a 14FF. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
I can't think of a better reason to upgrade to a 14b Full floating axle. Most pick your part junk yards will sell a complete one for $150. I know of someone making a disk conversion for a 14bFF who is local to you, it adapts the Full Floater back to 6 lug so you dont have to mess with new rims or upgrading the front.
I had one come loose like that to me on the freeway in a Toyota Landcruiser. We had the top off and were going about 70. We rolled it real good. Now I dont fool with the 1/2 ton stuff.
Been there, Done that. I cant wait to get my 14ff.
hey mike, on the 14 bolt 6 lug kit, could you give some more info, i did not find it on your site /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
Give TonyP a pm - he can fill you in on the details.
i pulled the cover off and found out that the carrier was destoyed. thousands of pieces. I removed everythinkg and put back in the biggest piece of the carrier with only the side spider gears and the c clips. that was enofe to hold the axles in place til i got it to its destination for a new rear end. (i had to remove the rear driveshard and run it in FWD mode)
fun stuff. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
Hey, you have the same Riken Radial Tires I've been running for about 8 years!! I thought cheap Korean tires didn't make it to the US. Not that they are bad. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Althought I never had a breakage like that, I've finished replacing my 12 bolt with a 14 bolt. I'm also swapping a D60 in the front. That's supposed to be bulletproof, and bring me into the prestigious <font color="blue">1 Ton Club </font color> /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
