    No excuses, @Comatose ! Working party of 3 half lit AOs, a MM, and a HM for safety/babysitting and he could have that project licked in 17 minutes. Just bribe them with a case of beer.

    Did a front end rebuild on Pauls truck today. Total chaos cam tab gussets, gusseted spindles, new lca’s, UCA’s, wheel bearing assemblies, and bilstein 6112s with new top hats. Original CV’s but once we got a closer look at them, the boots are pretty rotted so we’ll rebuild them at some point. Pro tip, when total chaos says you need wheel spacers on stock wheels for their spindle gussets, they’re not joking. That thought didn’t even cross our mind until he went to back out and the front tires wouldn’t move. The wheel weights were gouging into the spindle. Luckily a buddy 10 min away has a spare set of spacers so he saved the day.

    I appreciate that but the axles need all new boots. Luckily they’re not actually torn or slinging grease, but their days are numbered.

    So that’s what my JBA UCA’s should look like… I guess we were right @y=mx+b … something didn’t look correct after greasing :rofl:

    do you mean the one that was bulging on the end? I wonder if there was a bubble or the old grease was stuck in there, did you ever see if it worked itself out?

    Very nice, I have never seen or heard or one like that but I like it.
    I haven’t looked recently enough to remember, my guess is that it still looks pretty fugly
