Will do, thanks.

Removed the axle bearing races and oil seals on my Dana 44. I hope to reinstall everything tomorrow.
Question: Should the axle bearings be greased prior to installation?
I just had new axle bearings (Yukon) retainers and outer seals installed on shafts. I wasn't sure if the bearings are greased at the factory and if that is sufficient. I tried searching the forum and couldnt locate a definitive answer.

I resealed the bottom cover on my dana 300. It was raining outside and it did not go pretty. I used the "the right stuff" ,which was very tacky and whipped like whip cream. Never used that before. It did not want to smear. If I had to bet it would be that it will leak again. I did a good job cleaning it but sealing and assembling was u-u-ugly trying to get those rear bolts in while the transfer case is still mounted under the car.

Changing the 2 pipes between the engine and the oil filter; one of the old was drilled by the frame: bad position while bad working of the previous owner; the new are a little bit longer and curved, so I have changing the position of the filter and this problem is solved
While looking for a way to mount up my sway bars when they are disconnected, I decided to just rip them off and start over. I had the stock links modified so that they were removable at the axle, but with the links attached when unhooked, finding a place to strap them out of the way while wheeling, was becoming a losing battle. the tires always seemed to snag them when flexing, and tear the zip ties loose that were holding them up.
I figured if I could eliminate the links, that would make things easier.
I dug around in the scrap pile, the bolt bucket, and the spare parts shelf.
An old driveshaft tube, some 1/2" pipe, a few long 5/8" bolts, and a few spare Poly bushings that came with my shocks.
$10 at the local hardware store for the lynch pins, a little cutting, a little grinding, a little welding, and a little drilling and I had new end links.
