I'm just curious as to which custom axle makers the majority of the board members are using. I need to get custom inner made for a front D44 thats been narrowed on both sides. Any suggestions?

I would like more tech even if this means posting the same info over and over.[/rant]
Thanks for your support!
Edit: I forgot to post about the subject..dammit!. I had my custom length 60 inners done by Dutchman. Seem fine to me. They are just factory ones cut down though.
Nothing! Zip, nada. Help or shut-up imo. I'm backin' up the Scout Dude here. For the last year or so I have watched our "community" slip and slide downhill...from the trolls to the "mob mentality" bullies to those that think it's "hardcore" to belittle others. It pisses me off and I'm sick of it.What else are you supposed to reply with if this topic has been covered numerous times?
by HefHow and why you "search" before you "post"
The absolute best way (and fastest) to get the tech info you want is to do a search. You get an immediate response and usually pages of threads to skim over for your answers. You read, read, read, and eventually you will discover the answer to your question *9 times out of 10*.
I do it. I do it for every tech question I have. When I need an answer I need it NOW because my junk is in pieces and I'm in greasy coveralls. I don't want to wait for people to reply to my thread - that sucks.
Another point to consider is that every time someone creates a thread and repeats an often asked question, it adds more crap to sift through when others search the same topic. The lazy threadstarter has now made it harder for the next guy to learn what he just did. That isn't really fair.
This is how you search. Take a few key phrases, then do a search for each phrase (or word) in the appropriate forum. Read some threads. When you search the 2nd and 3rd phrases keep an eye out for threads which show up repeatedly. This should give you a hint towards where you ought to be looking.
My 89 Toyota 22RE pickup was running like crap last week. I noted these symptoms.....a) very poor idle, b) excessive gas consumption, c) unable to set base ignition timing (it jumped around), d) ECU gave me a code 51 during diagnostic mode.
First I searched "code 51" in Toy Tech. Then I searched "poor idle". From these 2 searches I was able to find enough posts which described similar symptoms that I figured out what was wrong - my TPS was shot. Another search for "TPS" gave me threads which confirmed my problem as a bad TPS.
I ran back out to my truck and hooked up a DMM to the TPS. Sure enough, it was wasted.
So I got my question answered without having to ask anyone. And faster, without being flamed for asking the 1,000-times-asked question either. That's why we always tell newbies to search before they post.
5 minute search,searching does work. i didn't even see any posts telling someone to search
Oh - thanks.....ya self-righteous.......BillaVista, here you go
Not trying to impress anyone. It is hard to impress any person on the internet because someone can be totally full of BS and you will never know it. Lots of people can type on a key board, not ever wheel, and have a pile of parts sitting in their back yard that will never run.BillaVista said:

It wasn't the validity of searching I was questioning, but the inane practice of replying with the word "search". Doing that, like you did, actually dissuades people from searching because all they get is the cocky responses of wannabes like you.
I've seen you post a bunch lately about "search" and "chit chat" and so on. Are you trying to be a cocky punk in hopes of impressing someone with your hardcore attitude?
Take your 61 postin' newbie ass back into the shadows and learn some more before you start critiquing me son.
Well then why not post the "tech knowledge you posses"blk87K5 said:
Just because I only have 61 posts, doesn't not take away any of the tech knowledge I posses. It only means that I have not been on this board long.
