XJ shaft install

GARD Pro Not Registered

This is on my ’88 K5. Some of the older steering boxes won’t work with this swap due to having a bigger splined end on the steering box. I don’t know the years or models off hand, but I’m sure someone on here does.

Once I got the shaft home I took the two halves apart and cleaned it up and painted it. The shaft that I got had plastic inserts that kept the two halves from moving. I just drilled them out and threw away the inserts. The pic’€™s below show where I drilled and where the inserts were. The holes were already there. That’s where the plastic inserts had nubs that stuck in there.

Drug Smuggling 101- AKA Air Soft Bead Balancing Tires

GARD Pro Not Registered

As most of you know, there are many options available out there to balance tires. there is the traditional stick on weights, high priced equal powder, and even cheap ass solutions like golf balls and BBs. personally, i am a cheap ass and i am tired of ripping off weights on the trail so i decided to try something different. one thing that most people dont take into consideration is that when aired down on high traction surfaces like rock the tires actually spin a little bit on the rim (this is why drag racers use rim screws) so stationary weights like the stick on kind become useless when one or more tires spins on the rim and the weights are no longer in the correct spot to balance everything.

What’s the DIFF???

This is for anyone wondering what all the different names/types/brands/models/variations of differential do, and why you might want one over another. Most of the links take you to a manufacturer’s official tech page, including an exploded view of the particular diff, and a detailed explanation of how it works.
