    Ok, current plans:

    High pinion front, 5.29's, Grizzly Locker
    Remove ghetto fab front spring perches and replace with better, low profile, anti-wrap perches
    Soften up front and rear springs
    Raise driver's seat one inch and move it back as far as it will go
    Groove tires
    Add wheel spacers to rear

    Softening up the springs and putting new perches on should lower the rig about 1.5 to 2 inches, which is good.



    Ghetto fab perches





    One down, one to go



    Pulled a leaf out of the back. Rear pack was pretty stiff and didn't flex too much.

    Every time I look at this thing when it was parked, it would look like one rear tire was toed in. Then park it again and the other tire would be toed in. And the resting shackle angle kept changing. I knew something was wonky in the rear. Found out what it is. Easy fix though.

    1/2 inch bolt in a 5/8 or bigger hole.



    Between the play in the hole and in the bushing, there can be about a 1/2 inch difference from side to side on the front hanger which translates into over a inch at the wheels.

    Probably not next weekend. I don't know if the new front diff will be here by then.

    Ok, finally got ahead of things at work and ticked a couple things off the honey do list at home so I had a chance to get a little more done tonight.

    Got the new perches.



    Machined to fit around the short side of the axle and lower how it mounts to the axle about 3/8 or 1/2 inch. With the other mods to the springs, and getting rid of the funky welded on plates and welded on metal for the home made shims, it should lower the front just about 2.5 inches. I might add some boomerang shackles to allow a more droop with only adding 1/5 inch of lift. So net 2 inches lower and more droop.





    Also working on some brackets to get the seat moved up one inch and back. Not done yet. Plans were to run it back 3 or 4 inches, but looks like i'll only get about 2.5 inches back. But that's better than nothing. I'm not chopping up the cage to move the seat back any more. Maybe at a later date i'll swap seats to get it moved back more.



    Then got a new shineeey part. High pinion front, Yukon 5.29's and a Detroit. WOOT

    Then had to deal with this. We know these things get banged up pretty bad. Mine won't come out. In Canada a couple weeks ago a guy ripped his out even though he had the fancy low profile one and he didn't have a spare.



    So cut it out, and plate it in.







    Grind smooth in prep for some bottom plating.



    Made up a 1/4 inch plate to go over the bottom of the diff.



    Done

    Ran into a couple snags tonight. TSC didn't have the bolts I need and the 3rd member won't fit in my axle housing. Going to have to clearance it. But I had to repair a radiator for one of my students tonight so not a bunch of work to show.

    You should give the plug to beefy, his needs all the scrap pieces of working rigs it can get.

    So putting a V6 high pinion center in a 4 cylinder low pinion housing presents some challenges.

    First the bearing adjusters are way bigger and different. Not the rounded stamped steel like the 4 cyl has. They do not fit.





    And the ring gear is noticeably thicker. Thicker is better right? Either way, it don't fit.



    So clearancing is required.



    Ok, so that's done, then more problems. Pulled all the studs and replaced them with bolts. Toy people know, but others may not know that the studs can pull out. So I replaced them all and put loc tight on them to keep them there.



    The problem comes when I put the diff in. The mounting face on the 6 cylinder is far thicker than the 4 cylinder diff I pulled out of there. I didn't catch that before putting it together. So a lock washer won't fit and not enough threads are available for me to feel comfortable with just running a nut with loc tight. So the diff has to come back out, get cleaned back up and all new bolts put in.



    I said screw it for now and went on with setting the perches. Got the perches set and burned in. Set caster to about 9 degrees positive. Perches have 3 holes but I decided to use the center and not do the one inch stretch. The 1 inch stretch equated to just about a 2 inch difference in how the driveshaft splines engage at full droop.
