Superlift Install progress

Well after a full day of beating myself silly with a bunch of VERY tight, very stuck bolts, I'm just about done. I wasn't able to take many pictures, but I did manage to snap a few. I'll put them up later. For tomorrow though, there are a few things I need to run out and pick up. Apparently the hub nut rings are one-time use, so where would I get new ones for that? And also, on the side of the front differential, there are three bolts that hold a sort of hanger which then bolts to the frame to hold the front differential up. One of those bolts stripped pretty badly. Where can I get a replacement for this? I want to make sure it has the same thread, size, depth, hardness, etc. as the original bolt for when I put it back together. That's all I really need to find out for now, but tune in later for more updates on this silly installation and all the problems I shouldn't be having! = P

You should have a hardware store close by that has a screw genius, if they don't have it then they'll prolly know where to get it. Make sure and bring a nut with you obviously..

Good luck with the install, maybe I can see ya wheel it one of these days.. we're doing that trip outside of college station next weekend..

Axle nuts are a one time use but can be used over. I did when I installed my locker. I also re-used the axle nuts on my 95 escort when I re-did the axle seals. The axle nut you will have to get some ford or some parts store that does a lot of axles adn brakes, not the local autozone, and the likes. Other than that, you should be good to go. Lets see those pictures!!!
