If the bushings need to be changed it is necessary to remove, or at least loosen, the brake backing plates to get direct access to the bushing bores. Job simplified if the entire axle is pulled. ...

Wishbone/Trans Connection

I disconnected the radius rods at the trans and noticed even though I have the original style socket assembly, the ball had a rubber ball insulator on it. I know the rubber ball is used on the new...

After a few hours of "cotter pin hell" finally pulled the rear axle. Discovered much play in the "rivet style" U Joint. What is the proper lube schedule for the U Joint and how is it serviced ? Is...
