Well had a busy day today, tore down the front end today. When i first rebuilt the front axle i changed everything but the seals, guess what leaked. Also got the front drive shaft.

Here everything tore down and about ready to take the diff out

Diff out and old seals out

Also changed the rear diff fluid and closed everything up with these

The driveshaft is from a 79 ford bronco, just had it cut down and rebuilt. also had to use a conversion u joint.
the steering was not that bad, i was able to turn any where i wanted. the traction with being locked front and rear was awsome.

They dont ride that bad, it rides a little rougher than stock. For being leaf springs i think they flex really good.
