Okay so having noise troubles as always... Here's the latest.


I'm guessing that I have a loose tcase chain and that the chain is rubbing the case outside. Now on a normal np231 setup the front driveshaft shouldn't spin when in 2wd, thus making it so that the chain doesn't even move unless you switch to 4wd. However I have a locker in the front, I've heard that if the front is locked then the front ds will always be spinning. With that being the case I'm going to go and remove my front ds to see if that will stop the noise. Any other thoughts anyone? If this doesn't fix it then I'm sure I'll be searching more and likely starting a thread on the forums.

Man I really wish I could go just one month without having to spend money to fix this thing...

no the front ds will always turn regardless of a locker. the only way to keep that from spinning either remove it to test it or get some selectable hubs.

Okay so I pulled the front driveshaft, noise is gone. So I'm rockin' no front driveshaft until I buy a new chain. Also I fixed my popping noise in the front end, ended up just being the track bar that was loose. I tightened up the bolts and no popping.

Got some spare axle shafts for the dana 30 for $60 from a member on here, check him out he's got an ad in the classifieds section and he's got lots of good used parts for stock axles.



Here's the heep as she sits now, can't wait to get my lift done. I've been piecing together my lift as well, have rear springs and extended sway bar links. Hopefully my front control arms will be in soon. Still need track bars, front lift springs and rear control arms. Planning to have it done this January though!

Just 4.5 ish, I'm staying on short arms because long arms are too expensive for me. I am gonna be all adjustable though, I'm not gonna try and mess with using stock arms anymore.

Eh I haven't decided yet. I'm probably going to try and find some used 33s, but then again I may stay on 31s. I haven't gotten that far thinking ahead Depending on how much lift my rear v8 coils net I will probably be keeping at least two of the spacers. But really you can get them so cheap new on amazon I'd just go that route man.
