install instructions are on page 13, step #17.

I have the instructions in JPG format, but it's 20 MB of images, 19 images total! RagingBull2k2 had loaded up on-line and posted a link within one of the RCD sticky threads on ORR.

hmm, gracias, because i just replaced a CV, it didnt look any different?... i guess i should have read over the instructions when i got the truck back

i have the paper instructions sitting in my garage , ill go look

I was just going by what you posted or IM'd me about one time. You figured a price of $700 to replace them. Must have been to replace the entire coil over on each side then?

draggin this back up. i have gotten a few requests for pics of my gusseted diff bracket, so i grabbed a couple today.

best i can tell from the pics of the broken units, the bracket must be flexin a small amount across the large span from the three bolts to the mount pickup. since the middle bolt hole is so close to the edge, this area becomes the breakin point after the metal has fatigued.
a single gusset from the top brake, across the large span, and down past the middle bolt hole should significantly reduce the flex in the bracket.

i wont be able to follow up with any type of performance review as the kit has been sold and will be delivered this weekend. hopefully the new owner will let yous know how this diff bracket performs.

those welds i did with a lincoln 275 square wave TIG, and er80s-d2 filler.

we also have a couple really old school millers. i dunno how old they even are, or model numbers, but they weld awesome as well.

each machine welds a lil different, not better or worse, jus different. i use whichever is closest/easiest to the part im workin on

That gusset looks just like the superlift one so there should be clearance issues with it.
