So it was an epic 2 days at Performance Unlimited in Woodstock VT. I love this garage - and how I get to be wrench in hand the whole time :-)
First up was the replacement 4.56 geared third member from ECGS which happily came with marking grease from their final test
Nice coverage of the teeth - compare with old diff - had entire clean sections indicating lack of contact between ring and pinion gears...apparently is VERY difficult to correctly install gears, and best left to experts
All fixed- no more whining!!
Next we popped the MetalTech dual rate coils and Radflo 2.5 long travel shocks in place. Really had to squeeze to get those long shocks in
And 2 1/2" bumpstops
Also RED extended brake lines lol
Very happy with droop!
Then problem with adjustable Toytec RUCAs - not enough space without hitting the gas tank. At full (straight) droop OE sat a mere 1/4" above the tank! Is my tank different? Bought her totally stock, and no one else seems to have had this issue.
Many ideas kicked around - reshaping the tank, lowering it - too dangerous... put OE RUCAs back on and started front limit straps, welding plates and clevis mounts to the frame beside shock towers
Then retired to my hotel - almost 9 straight hrs of work...exhausting!
To be continued......with a surprise ending!
