I always like how the OBS look with '05 axles.
Nice job.

No, but you need both hubs locked in, otherwise just the spiders spin inside.

Jack it up and rotate the front wheel with the hubs engaged. For one revolution of the tire/wheel, you should count just over 4 revolutions on the driveshaft (or yoke if there is no shaft) to have...

He didn't mention miles, I'm just picking on the guy.
It's a good deal at $800 for sure.
I just love how some people think these old motors are worth gold.

I actually tried to work it in back in 2014 but wife had her high school reunion, so that killed the family trip. I will try and keep track of the event this year (er, next year?) and see what...

If you are in a pinch and can't get them replaced right away, plug your truck in over night. The warm coolant often will soften the O-rings and allow them to seal.
This pops up every Fall/Winter as...

Try .0005". These are the tolerances in the injectors that we machine to that need measured and adjusted.
