hmm that somewhat accomplished last night. didnt "snag" her. but to give you an idea, she wanted to stay outside and talk to me for 3 hours where it was cold and her friend was passed out inside cuz she drank too much


but seriously, hoping to finish up the 44a tomorrow. then get it painted here soon

took this pic tonight for ya



no vice grips holding up my struts

started to set my 44a pinion bearing preload but am starting to take chunks off the nut because my socket is too thick and as it gets closer to the base of the yoke its only grabbing at the top of the pinion nut. so Im thinking ill have to grind some off of it tomorrow (the socket).

oh and 400 ft/lbs is A LOT! gotta use some extra pipes for more leverage.

havnt tested it yet. and still dont have my entire interior back together so it would be hard to tell.
Also, I got Fatmat, not dynamat. just as good, but a lot cheaper.

Alright. I'm curious to see how much it helped. I plan to do it in the future, just haven't seen a ZJ's with it. Yea I've heard of fatmat and how it does the job just as good.

I cant wait to get this done. My latch is is garbage so the door dosent tighten correctly or open. And since the latch is broke I have the panel off which just amplifies all of the rattles. So between all that it drives me fckin insane! ugh!

what the heck are you trying to run up to 400ftlbs, max on the 44a pinion is 280ftlbs or 380nm.
you should have proper pinion preload way before that.

My thoughts exactly. He is going to break something, and blame his torque wrench again

First off, have a clue what your talking about before saying stuff. Actually I'm doing it right, you can think what you want. I talked to greg (superjeep on sf) who has rebuild 150+ rearends. He says he's done that before numerous time.
And yes it takes 400 ft/lbs, I've read that numerous times from numerous sources and greg confirmed that toi me yesterdat whe I called him up.
I'm not using a torque wrench. I wouldn't even know where to find a torque wrench that measures that high.

I have used the crap out of that pipe wrench in the past and it was its time. 400ft/lbs is A LOT.
