So Im done with my first install day and everything went pretty smooth. I got the UCA, LCA, CO's, and halfshaft out quickly.
However, when I tryed to break the outer shaft away from the birfield....es no buenu. Tried the tube slamming trick, that didnt work at all, so i just cut the axles.
I was able to get the birf, cage, and balls out pretty easy, but I cant get the remaining axles bit out of the cage to save my life. Gonna go get it pressed out tomorrow.
I had a puller on it until it broke and the axles bits didnt budge a bit!
I trimmed the forward LCA mount to clear the LCA.
I installed the AP UCA on the drivers to side to check clearance and I could NOT get the 4 AP provided spacers in betwwen the inner bushings. I even lined the AP UCA up with my old TC UCA's and the AP arms were indeed narrower, so I just used a heavy duty spacer from work. THe LCA were the same way, the inner bushings of the LCA's were almost flush wiht the LCA mounts. I could fit 2 spacers on the outside bushings. What gives? Anyone else have this problem?
Seemed to work out I didnt have any play in the arm when tightened.
I done for the day, but I have 2 more days to complete this, so lets hope everything goes well and i can get that damn axle back in the birf! Looking forward to completing.
