Had X-Men Origins had not come on I may have made more progress today. I managed to get both knuckles and the third member pulled. I spent the remainder of the afternoon threading out the studs. The driver side studs started giving me problems so I had to stop before I ran out of beer.
The third member is in immaculate shape. The gear are 4.11's but what mattered to me was the carrier and bearings. There is zero signs of abuse to the third which makes me excited because it lives up to that old saying "they don't make em like they used to".
I am considering keeping these birfields but will get the opinion of my unit's machinist's on them first. Tomorrow I might take another look at the hubs before I take the knuckes to the wash rack.
