Greasy rusty turd as delivered

Stripped down and wire wheeled
Click the image to open in full size.

Paint

The axle came with 3.25 gears. Ive never seen one with that high of a gear and I dont think its factory. Not sure why. Oh well, order gears, carrier and install kit.
Click the image to open in full size.

Remove the side gears and spiders from your 3.91-down carrier and install them into your 3.92-up carrier. Basically the same as the 9" carrier above except dont try to bust this one in half Notice the difference in offset.

Everthing together before the first go'round on the shims. The ring gear bolts were torqued to 55ft lbs with red locktight.

Now the fun stuff...

For tie rods, drag link and trac bar we are using 1.5 x .250 DOM with 5 -3/4 thread x 3/4 bore and 1- 3/4 thread x 5/8 bore chromemoly heims with kevlar liners. All hardware is grade 8 and pinned with a cotter key so it cant wiggle loose. We are also using misalignment spacers at the top of the passenger knuckle and at the pitman arm. You will need to drill the taper out of the knuckles and the pitman arm to make this all work.

More on this later.

Roll the new axle under there

Bolt your blingdaddy superflex springs into the stock 84 coil buckets - I did this out of spite to the interwebs since Ive read numerous times it will not work and that 73-79 buckets are required.

bottoms
Click the image to open in full size.

I used stock 79 F150 radius arm brackets instead of the TTBs. If you notch the brackets to clear the body mount and use the rear ttb bracket hole on the frame in the front hole of the radius arm bracket it works perfectly.

notch them like this...

bolt that shat up!

Mini spool bad. Better off making one with spiders n two cross pins.


Everything else looks good.

yes, thats a chrome diff cover.


On the brakes...
A 84 (not sure what other years for complete certain but Im pretty sure 80-96) the brake lines come off both sides of the frame with a seperate line coming from the proportioning valve. For this truck I used the 79 style lines and routed the line from the pumpkin (where it meets the juction block and is distributed to each caliper) straight up to the proportioning valve in the driver side line hole and capped off the passenger side with a pipe plug.



Next for this project will be a MSD 6al and coil, electric fuel pump and regulator, new valve springs to match the cam, shocks and a few other little things. I may also end up swapping torque converters for something a little higher stall.
