We are planning a workday at Neals on the 27th to put in Neals new front Axle and a few odds and ends. Weather permitting that is hopefully the weather will break and we will be able to have a good little wrenching day just wanted to see who elese would be interested in coming as well.
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 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!!!
I have some LEDs to install, and new interior door panel and maybe an over head console, Just have to take the %*#& stax off to get it in the garage!!!! Ohh and throw a diaper under the truck(grumbles...... Stupid invisible oilleak)

Ray you tear into my electrical nightmares and we'll find your oil leak LOL. Should be able to do my lift early. If huck can make it I would like to try and get some wiring isses fixed and get a tranny gauge put in if we can fit it in. Neal we will be leaving here at 7 AM
Hey now your headlights are still in :-p. I'll remember that when we start to bring parts that way now . I had the oil plug out thank you very much, I just couldn't get the filter off with my slick hands :-p take that cup cake! J/K LOL.
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.
