Firstly, I installed the new centering yoke in my driveshaft using a vice and some sockets. Had a hell of a time getting the new ball to seat on the pin. When I finally got it all back together, it was so tight I had to hit it with a hammer to get the joint to move. After working it I can move it around by hand but it's still very tight. Went ahead and bolted it up but didn't get to test it before I noticed a rear UCA bolt snapped. Decided since I was changing it I may as well drill the mounts for 7/16" bolts to snug up the JJ's. Seriously underestimated how much of a PITA that would be, so now it sits in the driveway, half done, and lowered back down for the night.



Was hoping to get to the exhaust shop, mount my flat skid, and go bend the trans shifter today. So much for that.

Got my 2" lift from BDS today. Thanks RPM Off-road in Bristol Tenn. fast delivery especially during the holiday season. Hope the install is as smooth. They sent me the wrong size sweatshirt so I won't be wearing an advertisement for them till I gain about 250 more lbs.

New motor runs great. Now the front driveshaft takes a dump. Does it ever end lol.

Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

Bedlined my rockers... hopefully they turn out. I didnt sand them, but they were cleaned very well, and the bedliner says there is no need to sand if the surface isnt glossy (and they werent).

Well today was a good day, Cuder and I (mostly Cuder) changed the shoes/drums on the 44, pulled the 35, installed the 44, all four rear Metalcloak CAs, and the Adams driveshaft (SYE yesterday). Then I went and drove it around for a bit, between the SYE and four MC arms it rides a lot smoother; and I want complaining about vibes before hand. Hopefully tomorrow we'll get the front arms in.

I'm worried the 302 lacks low end torque, which is what I prefer.
Best low end I ever had was with my 383 stroker or a 5.9 Dodge

As long as I keep up with regular greasings I should be fine.

I also picked up this Peak 400 Watt power inverter for $30, it was $20 off.
Did you just replace the entire ball? Lots of guys go for the rebuild kit. Whats the price on just the pre assbled unit?
