Re: vari lock axle swap
Ok I found a rear axle on Friday and got it in on Saturday only issue was the driveshaft. Because of going from a Dana 35c to a 44a the housing is about a inch longer so I needed to get the driveshaft too. The shaft I got the U joints were shot so I had to wait till today so I could use the press at work to swap joints. (Never been comfortable with the hammer method.) Like everyone guessed it was a straight bolt in almost took longer to get the stupid springs in for the parking brake shoes than to put the axle in. Thanks everyone for all the help. Now I need to find a front axle. I have a lead just need to make sure it's the right ratio. Find out later today. Have to wait for the dealer to open.
