Oh, well. I guess I don't speak Canadian well enough. I thought you were looking for what kind of drive slugs you had since your thread title was "Need help identifying drive slugs from my Dana 44"

I guess the "need to get new bolts" was lost on you Tim...

I thought those bolts came with the slugs... I did not install them.

You said there were broken bolts. Not that you didn't know what bolts they were.

Damn metric heads.

If you can't identify BOLTS then maybe you should get a Geo Metro.

Yer just gonna make up some excuse as to why you can't go on the Loonie run anyway.

Had to change the ball joints, that's why I was pulling the slugs. Found broken bolts, both sides. Pulled the slugs and found my 10 month old bearings absolutely fawked... Bought new bearings, and ball joints. Went to use ball joint press but could not get it to fit with high steer arm on. Clamped the arm in the vise and tried to get the bolts freed up. Powere bar with a length of pipe on it. Broke the base bolt on my vise... Had to fix the vise to remove the ball joint.

I think my jeep does not want to wheel in 10 days...

I knew you were going to come up with some excuse as to why you can't make it.

Trust me beotch... I will be there. I need to get a tap to clean up the threads for the upper ball joint tapered spacer. Gonna get it at work tomorrow. Seems someone must have taken a couple of threads out with the torch when they burnt the old one out. I don't want to pound the new one in and bang it all up. Ball joints are in the outer already. Just need to bolt it on and put the Brgs in it and I'm on the road... About an hour or two in the garage... I only work Monday Tuesday days, and Wednesday night. Have school Friday then I off until next Wednesday. Should be able to find time to get it done.
