It's lookin like I better not put it in 4wd untill I change the inner boots. Very deeply cracked but not leaking. That Memorial Day trip almost totally did them in. Maybe I should massage some AT fluid into them untill I can do this.
I already have the "fat axle MT" snaprings that go inside the diff. . Is there a seal in the drive's side of diff. I need to replace??? Looks like this passenger side just unbolts. . I need to get the needle bearings. Are the AT and fat axle MT the same part number? Do they have to be pressed in? . I guess there's a seal for the needle bearing, but not sure of part number on rockauto,,,part number ??? . Do you have to remove whole knuckle assembly at the ball joints? . Maybe I should just drop the front diff. Can you do it that work that way without disconnecting ball joints??? . I have 2wd dummy washers from inside a 2wd M.S. knuckle,,, hammer them in and make it a 2wd for awhile???Krzy??? While it's out replace all front bushings. (( Dang,,wish I had a 2nd vehicle)).
