    low pinion D30 u bolt conversion

    I'm installing a u bolt conversion on a low pinion Dana 30. I know on a high pinion 30 it's. As simple as removing to old nut & yoke, installing the new yoke, torque the nut to spec. Is the low pinion any different? What is involved? Thanks in advance!

    00 np242 rear output seal

    I replaced my damaged np242 with a junkyard case, I opened it up/inspected/resealed case/hack& tapped it/replaced seals. When installing the rear output seal I noticed it went in too easy, I mean I could press it in by hand, so I spread some ultra black RTV in the opening before setting the seal...

    RE CA Drop Brackets, LCA too tight?

    I replaced some badly corroded RC drop brackets with a new set of RE DB, Seems the RE lower control arm pockets in the brackets are too tight, I had to spread them open a bit just to get the LCA into the bracket, I'm sure they would fit better if I removed the caster adjusting insert, but the RE...

    thread locker on oil pan bolts

    Having a little debate with a buddy. thread locker on oil pan bolts? Will they work lose without it?
