Sounds like this is gonna be a good one swapping out the front end on Neal's truck. I've already got something going on around here that weekend but I will make it to East Tn for one of y'alls meets this year.

I'm afraid I wouldn't be much help...If I wasn't working, I could help hand the tools to the surgeons. Sounds like a great time.

I may not do the front axle just yet.
Sorry guys. I still don't have all my parts. Just down to the little stuff now. Brake lines, bushings and U-bolts.

We will still have plenty to do. I have some gauges to install.
I want to weld up the tubes on the axle also before I install it. It sure is looking pretty right now all painted up. I installed the tie rod ends tonight and it really looks complete.

I know JD has some front springs to do also.

We will have plenty to do. Looks like the weather is going to hold out too. I believe 41 degress. What a heat wave, above freezing!!!

If you are off, you wanna come by early and help me empty the other bay?

Wish I could make it up, but I have too much to do around the house.

Neal, what are you going to do for brake lines? There is a local place down here called Royal Brass and Hose, they'll make braided stainless to spec with rubber outer coating for around ~$25 each. I'm going to buy some stockers, take them over there and have them make some 4 or 5 inches longer to match and take the stockers back. (as to have them ready and on hand and not have to take my truck appart, or pay an outrageous amount for pre-made units). I'm also getting my drop pitman arm this weekend as well, so I *should* have most everything rounded up for my SD RSK swap.

Justin
