well, i dropped the ball on a pair of axles, their not one ton's, but they'll do fine for me... D44 front and 8.8 rear... they both already have 4.56's in them, new brakes front and rear, heim'd drag link and tie rod. the 8.8 im just buying because its easier to swap the axle than it is to swap the gears. the D44 well you can guess that one haha. anywho, there was no shavings in the crevices in the pumpkins, and seem pretty clean... just having the 4.56's is worth it to me cus ive been quoted 600 per axle to have the gear swap done

i posted pics in my album

first thing im doing is swapping the 8.8 to gain lost power, but for the front i havent decided on how i want to set it up yet, i'd like to go 4-link coil-over but i dont know if i could afford it for a few more months... main cost is just the shocks... all the tube and metal i get at cost...

Just looked at the pictures and 2 things i noticed. first why with the heims did they run the tie rod under the knuckle when it could be raised to the top. and also it appears that the track-bar is almost hitting the engine cross member, must not have much suspension travel

yeah, the track bar was about 3 inches from the cross-member. il prolly end up torching most of the brackets off and start from scratch...
