I just had the same thing happen to my Skyjacker shock. The dealer just sells the whole shock (at least that is what they told me). I ended up going through Skyjacker to get the bushing part number...

Yeah, I saw the same document. I believe that section is talking more about making the vehicle properties equal from left to right so as not to adversely affect the behavior of the limited slip. I...

Wow, very thorough analysis. Thanks.

I am thinking that I will get the best value for my money by going with dual Truetracs. And maybe I will even take a bit of Lawrence's advice and surprise my...

FYI. I emailed Eaton and they said the 32" rule only applies to the models 7+ years old. All new Truetrac models are rated for 38" tires.

Yes, I would like the option to go to 35" tires in the future. Is Trutrac's rating of 32" max tires a firm standard?

True, balancing that equation is becoming a headache. I am leaning towards putting a lot of weight on the on-road snow traction. Which sounds like you believe an open diff is better than an LSD in...

Thanks guys.

No need to mess with the windshield. It is just that panel between the hood and the windshield. You remove the screws on the top and in the engine bay and pull off the windshield wipers.
