Everything is great! I have about 120 miles on them this weekend. I had some leaks in the compressor side of things, but they where easy to take care of. I can hit 70 at around 2500 rpm.

I hope you guys had a great weekend, and nobody broke anything.

We had a great time, wish it didnt have to end. Curtis trashed his motor and broke a lower control arm mount of his front axle. Todd broke a spider gear in his d35. I think the next stop for curtis's jeep will be the salvage yard, its done....

I am here to vouch for that I think he burned through 5 quarts of oil in 1/2 day's wheeling.

5 quarts! Well at least he was changing the oil regularly. At least Todd didn't break an axle, but I guess it's not a c clip anyway. SJ how were the new tires?

well I'm assuming he burned it all up...he said it was clattering by the time he parked it. I'm pretty sure I breathed in 2 or 3 quarts worth just riding behind him...

dude the procomp extreme MT2s performed really well, I was kind of surprised. Very pleased with them.

So I've been trying to put the miles on the regear and have notice a in the seat of your pants drone above 60. I have removed the front drive shaft and its as smooth as glass up to 75. Thats as fast as I felt like going. So I hope all is need is to balance the shaft. haha. I have replace the u-joint and centering ball. I hope thats all. Regear is perfect though.

You might just need to fine tune your pinion angle a bit to get rid of the vibes. With your double adjustable upper arms, should be easy. You might just need to give them a turn or two in or out and for them to be fine. I recently had my front shaft balanced and it actually vivbrates worse than before.....argh!!!

Well I guess that would require me putting the front UCA on. I need to get a couple more bolts from savvy. I guess you just drill out the bushing in the axle side.? I'm taking the driveshaft in today. Ill see what they say. I bet a new shaft would be better than that old stocker, but ill see if the old one will balance.

I picked up the driveshaft. It was out .040 on the axle side and .025 on the TC side. I will install it tonight and see how it goes.
