Replaced front driveshaft u-joints and started the D30 axle seal replacement. Gotta put the driveshaft in tomorrow. Also waiting for a second set of eyes to help with the axle seal. Gonna try to get it on the first attempt.
I just replaced seals in my d30. It's not that hard to do, just take your time, and don't get frustrated and hit it harder like i did. It'll just cost you another seal.
Cool. Thanks. So you pushed yours from the CAD? Kinda tight in there. I was thinking of using the threaded rod way, but what do you recommend. I'm still learning as I go, so I'm open for suggestions.
I bought a 2" hole saw that fit the seal just right for the disco side, ran a bolt through the back of that, and put a socket on the bolt with a bunch of extensions to fit out the other side of the axle, then just hammered it in. For the other seal, I cut a small piece of pipe that just fit that seal, and just tapped it with a hammer. I got it too crooked the first time and bent the seal, but i just went easy with it the next time, and it went in ok.
Ordered 4 new shocks, a drop pitman arm, blue SS extended brake lines for the front and one SS brake line for the back, and spring perches for the D30 up front. All thats left is the 8.8 swap kit, the 8.8 itself, the SYE and a new driveshaft
Well yesterday i limped the new YJ home, 1989 2.5.
Started getting to ork on it today, pulled out all the wet moldy carpet.
Only major rust on the body at least is the driver floor pan so cut that out today.
Trying to do all the things that dont cost money to fix right now, due to lack of cash.
Might need a new window frame what do you guys think?? haha
Inside of the frame bulges like its giving birth to an alien, hen the wipers are on ha
realized I need a new front bumper, and more money.

On a quiet night you can hear the sounds of a HUMMER rusting in the mud, and the man crying when a JEEP is pulling him out
