Yes that contact patch is 1 inch on the pinion, and ring gear. Kinda crazy that only one tooth is locked in fully and the other two teeth are about half way in, so that's 3 teeth touching as they rotate together. Sounds like the weak link to me. ???? But then again my testing was cut short.

72 f150 parts truck picked up for 500$ then some guy on Craigslist paid me 240$ for the hood fenders and doors, I pulled the axles for me HP Dana 44 disk brake and and ford 9 inch drum. Also got the drive shafts carb lap belts shifter boots radiator new starter and distributer. Small stuff I'll sell on eBay, np465 and a Dana 21 I believe so I'll sell the sm465 Dana 21 combo. I still need to scrap the truck to recoup my money and get the axles for free!

So the expense of cromo 44 shafts and longfield joints and flipping the axle tubes to make a passenger side drop, was silly, so I have the hp44 front and ford 9 rear for sale, and I bought Dana 60s front and tear with the passenger side drop. Now I don't have to truss either, I may shave them if easy enough.

Thinking about ordering 40 ltb's 16x16 what y'all think? Then getting ready to order poison spider outboard kit.

Theses Dana 60s are going to get 4.56 and detroits. Spicer ujoints 1350 yokes.

Called Dever springs today talked to the partial owner slash spring designer he said he can make me some nice springs for a 3 inch SUA lift I like the idea of a flexy 3 inch lift on 40s low rider.

Any problems with my build ?? So far, I'm also looking for a used hydro assist kit that is dependable for street use easy to find replacement parts but NOT top of the line. Any tips on this.

Well the 40 ltb are back ordered untill January so think I'll be looking at a different tire. They said the are moving the build location of the ltb to another place over seas and that's why they are out and on back order.

I'm trying to pick up some h1 wheels, with the PVC inserts or a good deal. They are kinda hard to find locally.

I've been on the forums picking up good used parts. 4.56 gears, new master install kits some 35 spline outer stubs and hubs. Diff thick cover. High steer arms, hydro assist Psc. I think as far as lockers I'll buy brand new. I'm looking to run low low sprung over on 40s maybe Sam 35 tsl, they are on back order everywhere but the guys at interco told me personally that he would find me some if I can't. He said All boggers and all tsl are being produced currently and all small Ltb is being produced, large Ltb will may be 2013 nice guy. I'll post some picks of the grinding and cutting i did cleaning up the axles.

Half way cutting off, the old coil spring stuff. I'll have some pics of it cleaned up and ground down. Tonight I take it to my mechanic to get town down and cleaned up inside and out. Then I take the front to a different guy to get the caster set to better fit my jeep with 40s and then I can lift the pinion angle, and still retain, good on road handling.

So I plasmad the parts off, with my new Eastwood plasma cutter (3 year warenty) of worked great I've never used one before but it went fast and made nice cuts.

Then I grinded down the left overs smooth, slapped some paint on it just for now, once the housings are empty and gutted I'll look into trusses if it's necessary, I hope not since I'm trying to keep it light weight as posible. And then I'll sand blast them down and paint them with some nice anti rust sealer or something industrial any ideas on what paint to sure?

Cutthroat4x4 has east coast prices and is as far as I can tell a family owned or at least family style business, when you call, the owner or family answers, and gets you the info you need. A matter of fact one person couldn't answer my question so they gave me the owners cell phone number told me I could text him for a faster response or that the owner would return my call tomorrow, my choice. I texted him and got my answers within minutes. Wouldn't it be nice if all business operated like that?

I went to place my final order of disc brake kit, some trick ubolt elimiter kit for better ground clearance since I'll be SUA on the rear, weld on shock tabs and ubolts. I was checking out and my shipping looked very HIGH I know it's allot weight but the shipping was just to much. I did not place my order I called them to inquire about the shipping and they informed me sometimes the shipping calculator Gets messed up, and that they are trying to get there web page people to fix it. WE decided I'd place my order an that they would refund me all but actual shipping! That's a deal! I placed my order an within minutes they refunded all my shipping fees!!! Free shipping on metal that's crazy but I'll gladly take it.

I recommend doing business whenever possible with cutthroat4x4 and I will post pics of my sweet parts when they arrive.

Price better than fair,(USPS flat rate) actual shipping cheap, Products needed.

I wanted to go to disk brakes on my axles they were needing drum work anyways so I started to look around. Cutthroat4x4 had the best prices and some other neat parts. This lead me to ordering all the parts I needed from them as they had the best prices.
