Installed the shafts, caliper bracket, spindle, and hub to the passenger side then started on the drivers side.

All was going well until I tried to install the axle shafts. The "yoke" on the inner wouldnt fit throught the knuckle. I had read of this happening before so off to the grinder I went.









From there on went smoothly again.

Complete minus lockouts and calipers.

As you may recall, this housing has been fitted with Ballistic Fabrications Dana 60 Shave Kit for those that dont http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...ml#post6044071

Well after having my gears installed I had a slight problem:





The cover no longer fit! Seriously...this cover had been a pain in the ass. When originally fitting it to the housing we had to enlarge several holes on it, and ended up half stripping a couple as well.

I contacted ballistic and they sent me another cover. This time it fit perfectly. I chase all the threads on the cover bolts, and all the threads in the housing as well. Went together like butter.

Does the case really get stretched that much when the carrier goes in, or was it just a bad cover? BTW, what size socket is needed for the pinion nut?

That's the cover not being deep enough it looks like. The holes not lining up? I'd say bad cover or wrong cover.

Cover was not deep enough. Was just a bad one from the get go. Socket is 1 5/16"...you will need to make it thinwall if you replace yoke with driveflange, in order to install the new pinion nuts.

Shit, I see it now. First pic kinda threw me off I guess, I thought you were referring to a width issue.

It actually had that at first until I drilled all the holes to 7/16" from 3/8" for the 5/16" fasteners. But once the carrier and gears were in the cover is sitting on the ring gear preventing it from going on all the way.

I think the "shell" portion fell too deep into the "flange" portion if you follow. Also the flange is made from 3/8" plate and machined flat again after welding to account for warpage. It looks like my original had warped badly too, as there were points it was only 3/16" thick.

Either way the new one fits and fits great!

Jon are you gonna shave yours? no homo

No need to. The OD on the ring gear doesnt need to be turned down any for the ballistic shave kit. And the rear shave [D60] is basically just grinding off a bug hunk of cast on the housing so no need there either.

Finishing buttoning up things on the interior from the duals. Patching the tranny tunnel a bit and I am going to install a rubber boot there to seal the interior up, and I will have the faux leather boot still at the center console.
