Axle and knuckles are sandblasted. Pulled the oil seals and cleaned thoroughly. Scraped of the old gasket material. Wire brushed the places I couldn't get to with the blaster and got it in primer. Carrier bearings are pulled from the old and new carriers. I measured the old shim stacks for a baseline set up. Pulled out the U-joints from the axle shafts. I bent one of the yoke ears after much fussing around trying to remove the 15 year old U-joint. : These axle shafts will end up being spares.

I now have 4 sets of carrier bearings for the D30. I was going to use one of the old sets I pulled off a carrier, but the cage got mangled on the first set I pulled. Later, my buddy came by with a spare set of D35 bearings. D30 and D35 use the same carrier bearings, so I measured the thickness of them and my final Dana bearings; both are 0.78, so I should be fine using these as setup bearings. I managed to pull another set off a carrier without trashing them, so I'll have another set for setup if necessary.

Next up is opening up the carrier bearings and setting up the new 4.56s.

Got it dirty! We made a trip up to R&V on Sunday with 5 Jeeps and had a great time, only my second time there. A year ago I went for a day and poked around by myself but was reluctant to try any of the black trails without anyone else around. A little snow and mud but generally smooth sailing other than trying to get my vertically-challenged Jeep over some of the sharper break-overs. I like to think of it as grading the trails for the benefit of others!
