I know i should replace the crush sleeve, Idk what I'm gonna do.

as for installing it, It was already in the truck and full of oil before i got around to realizing the yoke was wrong..



** I just got an email back from him, yall forgot about one thing, that you can use a solid spacer instead of a crush sleeve and thats what he used so I can just pull the yoke and run another one on there..

butttt thats another $35 lost cause we cut the old u-joint in half to get it off haha.

We're goin wheelin Friday, actual rocks and tight trails this time.. lets see what breaks this time, i should get a big box full of hubs.

I'll have spare f/r shafts. but only 1 spare hub this time :/

4wp for the fail.. AGAIN. they have to have my origional receipt to swap them out? I didn't buy them through 4wp but a lifetime warranty should be a lifetime warranty. MM never replied to the email i sent them :/

the bearings on the pass. side were shot, and the hub on the drive side was bent so it took a while and quite a bit of persuasion to get the stupid locking hub out.. then took the bearings out, blah blah, packed the new ones, put the new races in... andddd somethings not all the way in, i tried twice. but its not in far enough apparently cause I cant get the snap ring on the end of the shaft inside the hub.

soooo here's what it looks like now.. Idk how Im getting to work just yet, but its late, I'm tired and annoyed, so its gonna sit on stands all night.

So that's as long as you could get them before it started binding up the driveshaft? They just seem short to me.

Your leafsprings look pathetic!!

why are you confused? I just used the existing bolt that holds the shocks on, do you have an issue with that?.

haven't got to go out yet. not too much, the shocks will still have like 4-5" of down left in them but im going off the fact that they'll stretch some.

after work i need to figure out why the driver side rotor/hub isn't going together like it should. then me and Jay are gonna go out and find somewhere to flex it out.

I am, I could have got longer ones, Casey said he thinks they stretch an inch per 10", others say an inch..

we couldn't find a place to flex it out enough to bind up the drive shaft so i went with 25" to be safe. My main goal with the SAS was strength, flex is a nice side effect
