I've done a little bit of work to the truck in the past two months.
Got the right side hub 'shimmed' up with these:http://www.ingallseng.com/26126-6-bolt- ... -shim.html
Put my tires back at a matching angle on both sides. I was extremely positive on the right like this, if it makes sense: | / now both are as close to this as I can get it: | |
Here are a few pics of the shim job.
Also put some 4 degree shims in the rear. I should go back to Chris and get him to move the perches but this will do for now.
I had to move the pinion down because the aussie in the rear was rattling when I'd coast or let off or on of the gas. Not cool.
Didn't match the output angle on the trans either. To be completely fair, I did swap trans and we had no idea at the angle that the AR5 was gonna be out at.
Also, not too long ago, I noticed that when I was on and off the brakes that I could feel a shifting up front and a clunk sound.
Turns out I busted a lower link on the driver side. Got another from Chris and swapped it out before my last wheelin trip... the one that involved a monkey, towing a CJ home, blowing my fuel pump and even a delorean. Ya no joke. Long story.
I also added a horn to my current annoying Barbie Isuzu horn. Hate how our horns sound soooo wimpy!!
I yanked this from am old 5 series BMW in the yard awhile back and just tapped the line to the current one:
I like how it sounds, kinda duotone sounding.
Its the lower one - if you can't tell.
If I catch up with you guys in Uwharrie, I'll share my monkey story.
Y'all know Poser Rock, well had to get up it and go under for a shot!
