Haha, i'm not sold on the Anti-rock for MY usage. One day that might change, I might buy one regret every moment spent without... but for now. I'm good.

BFH is right!

Here we have two assembled axles.... I gotta say I botched the U-joint install on the first one I did and I'm not happy! It'll be ok, It just pisses me off! I distorted the dust covers pretty bad on two ends. I was being a complete dumb dumb and while I pressed in the first cap, let the joint just sit there instead of pushing it up into the cap as far as it would go. So it put a little pressure on the dust shield and jacked it up a little. I'm not worried about it, just irritating. The second one went on like butter after I started paying attention! They are pretty though.

Just beautiful. Any hints for someone who might be doing the same this weekend?

Most likely this

ARs are one of the best things I've installed on my Jeep in regards to traction and stability off-road. They rock

Thrashed for a couple hours and the front end is together, went back together real nice. Everything torqued to spec and ready to go. I'm thinking shake down run on Saturday at my little play spot. Only thing left to do is put on the rear diff cover tomorrow. I didn't feel like playing with the Ultra Black tonight. I did notice the old axles slid right out of the unit bearings and the new ones did not slide right in, it took me tightening the hub nut down to "pull" them in, I can only imagine when it comes times to remove them the fight they'll give. I'm curious if Beasley's new Superiors are like that or not. I'm pretty satisfied with the work. I desperately needed a refresher course on solid axle front end overhaul.

Hey... now at least there's two of us!!

You guy's will be fine, it's all fairly pleasant work, Nothing like pulling a transmission or doing a clutch, doing a head gasket, or any of that other dirty work... this is all just right there in front of you, easy to reach, lightweight....it all makes sense. Just gotta have some patience and the tools.

But.... I like dirty work.

Im actually getting really excited to get the work done. Some day I hope my front end looks just as drop dead gorgeous as yours Nate. I know you put a lot of effort into it- but I still cant believe just how clean it looks.

But I love doing transmissions... While I can be short on patience at times, I do have tools...lots of tools, and hammers, Really. Big. Hammers...

Damn, I gotta watch my wording!!

Thank Kate, I appreciate the compliment as yes i do put a lot of effort into keeping her looking clean. I don't think it looks as good in person though. The photos help.

Pulling transmissions on my back, in my garage by myself (always) SUCKS! Now give me a lift... or even just someone to help and I'm good. I just never like asking for help, or I just want it done NOW and struggle through it alone.

Really big hammers, and liking the dirty work must just go hand in hand...

Always an adventure.... My Vortec Supercharged 93 Mustang 5.0 used to blow them about once a month back when I was playing the HP game.

Talk about clean.... I miss this girl.

Well yeah- if you like one you should really like the other.

Also- that seems like the best game ever.
