I was thinking the same thing too when I saw it. I may be suffering the same issue. Maybe YJ lines are in order for me.

Yeah I'm a little surprised. This is definitely not something I ignored. I took a lot of time making sure I was ok. I doubt I actually have an issue considering the number of wheeling trips I've been on with this set up and the amount of time this things been flexed in every which way.....but you kinda don't want to have any brake issues! Oh well, easy fix..... not to expensive.

I really need to be more creative with my Gopro mounting. Suspension footage just looks cool and I think I need to shoot some when I get my Jeep going again

I think it could be a valuable tuning tool. I'd like to do the rear to see how my shock outboard looks "in action". Just gotta make sure you don't smash the camera I guess.

I also think youtube just let me rotate it 90 degrees.....so it should be more viewable after it reprocesses.

I just redid BOTH diff cover gaskets, Geez I must have been slipping because I swear I've never had one leak before and this time they BOTH were leaking. I'm also suspecting that It may have been a bad tube of Ultra Black, somehow.... It seemed really dry when I pulled the diff covers off. Interesting. Oh well, this time I used

This stuff is always good to me....and is much less of a mess.

Gopro has one on their site I used but it only allows you to cut the video into clips to combine into a larger video but I dont have a program to that part.

You guys must not have a Mac. They come with iMovie which is an easy movie editor. Not as complex as some of the programs you pay for but gets the job done for me

Yep, I use IMovie too. Works great. Took a little to figure it out tho. I think what I do is, go to the 'File' tab and import what vids I want to edit.

You have to import them into iMovie but not by dragging it to the program. Open the program and import from the camera

Welding warps the DIY cover rings a little. I always used a ton of Black RTV and just finger tighten the cover bolts when I first install it. Let it set up for awhile so the gasket hardens some creating a thicker o-ring like gasket and then torque them down snug. Has always worked for me.

Could have been that, although I checked them for flatness and they was pretty flat. Oh well, no big, just annoying. It's funny because in the past I've been so impatient and just thrown a bead of RTV on, tightened and filled and no leaks, and this time I was actually somewhat careful, let it dry overnight before filling, and had a leak.... on BOTH! I"ll either say it was poor workmanship, materials, or a little of both. What I may have done wrong is try and be a little to stingy with it..... noting in the past that I would squish out more than actually was used.
