I'm inclined to not care about balancing it. There's 100% chance I'll bend it again and even the slightest bend would counteract any balancing. I ground the welds just to make the amount above the tube the same all around.
Update on my brake line....
I got to thinking about them last night and opened my Jeep file folder. I did replace the front brake lines when I put the '95 D30 in. The calipers on the '88 were different and I couldn't use them. So the lines were about two years old.
Upon closer inspection (I pulled the right front wheel off), it seems something bent the tube that comes out of the caliper toward the wheel, and every time I went full left lock on the steering, the hose was rubbing the inside of the tire. Probably a branch or rock from the last trip to Big Bear.
Anyway, the hose burst there in the middle where it was rubbing. $22 later and it's back on the road. Checked the other side and it clears fine.
Now to put a tail pipe on it and I'm ready to wheel.
Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion! RJC#512
That wasn't so hard. $15 for the DOM I'm inclined to not care about balancing it. There's 100% chance I'll bend it again and even the slightest bend would counteract any balancing. I ground the welds just to make the amount above the tube the same all around. thoughts?
I have been building my own this way since I built my jeep, never had any issues and never balanced and can do 80 on the highway vibration free. At least none from the shaft.
