This is a weekend and first of the week update. Maurice picked up leaf spring bushings on Friday, but didn't get to do much because of a balloon glow in town we went to (ofcourse our significant others wanted to go; who are sisters BTW).
With the poly bushings, you have to remove the factory metal sleeve.
Saturday mornings work...
New James Duff brake lines:ohyeah:
New u-joint flange...
Yesterday after work Maurice got her on the ground and driving...The u-bolts are 5/8" diameter rod because the shop didn't have any 1/2" rods. I drilled out the spring plates to accept the bigger u-bolt. Maurice will be ordering a new spring plate set soon.
She is setting pretty level now. The ride and the driving with the 4.56 gears and 31's I drove it last night and it is awsome!
The rear end right now sticks out about 3/4"-1" more than the front with the Explorer 8.8 installed. By the end of next month he will have a Ranger Dana 35 up front, so that will help.
What happened to Maurice and he isnt updating his post?? His he unable to due to health reassons??
Maybe I just mised somthing
Yea he got banned for what the mods call "moderator abuse", but then they tell everyone he had it coming.
I am updating them on R-F and TRS. He is doing the other Ranger sites. He sends me what he posted and I update them. Granted I change them a bit so the mods don't think he is talking through my screen name.
