Started on my locker install this morning since the weather was good. I received my master install kit and detroit locker last week so I've been itching to get it installed. I pulled my rear axle shafts this morning and rear third to have everything checked out since I suspect I have a bent axle shaft. So I dropped everything off at a local shop in Winchester to have both axles checked and my locker installed.
Heres the axles pulled out and ready for inspection.
Third just waiting for the Detroit!!
Empty axle housing!
Well made a little progress over the weekend finally. Got the rear diff back Wednesday night but it was missing a few ring gear bolts. So after pulling a few teeth I finally got the bolts ordered and received them Saturday but Saturday was the wifes birthday so worky on truck lol. Started on it today by lock titing the bolts in and torqueing them down. Got the rear end out together, fluid added and brakes bled. Took a small test run and rides great. Also ordered a battery box from Ballistic Fab, a snorkel in a group buy and debating on a little tire upgrade for something a little more aggressive but not decided yet. Heres a few pictures I took and remembered to take lol.
Heres a picture of the battery box.Got to get it powder coated and pick up a new battery before installing.
Heres a few pictures of how MUSHER sits with her new springs and shackles installed. It was almost dark so pics suck.
