Size:  30.1 KB chad and Shane from green country said they have had good luck with these gears. Alledgedly made in same facility as Yukon but I can't confirm that. But for a little over $500 for front and rear with install kits that are timken bearings I had no problem giving up my card info over the phone. Really excited to see what she does with 4.56 and the 5.2L v8 on 35s. Should put me in my seat a bit deeper than the 3.73 I previously ran.

Sunday was a wash due to fam stuff and I had a few Monday after work so I got started on ball joints. I punched in spindle studs.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1333451312893.jpg
Views: 1514
Size:  36.5 KB I then used my ball joint press to install the upper. I cleaned the top surface of knuckle so it would seat cleanly. But I got this.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1333451452801.jpg

I pounded my head off the wall trying to figure out why I couldn't get the c clip in. All my friends assumed I did something wrong. But after conferring with my military jeepers brothers it turns out there is no c clip for the upper ball joints. Just the lower ones. They put c clip in the package because other applications use it.

Some call them spring clamps. I call them u bolt eliminaters. Whichever,green country offroad makes these beefy. Fabbed from 1/2 inch plate with bolts thicker than the average ubolt. The axle is bolted in place.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1333829767078.jpg

I have to say thanks to erock33 for showing me how to do the next step. I also have to say thanks to Chris palsmeier from whynotcustoms.com for answering his phone and answering a few questions.

Upon initial set up it seemed the hub was getting Hung up on something before it was fully seated. It seemed the spindle bolts were hitting the hub.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1334551621990.jpg

I inspected the Ford spindle studs and it seemed they were a little over 1/4 shorter then the Chevy ones I used. So once they were torqued in place. We cut enough out that it will clear.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1334551920679.jpg
