i like how u assumed it was a full spool, not even a mini or welded just to realize it may be an lsd hey wait maybe you'd know if u changed the gear lube and didn't run the shit from the 79 Bronco

don't you also mean 260 for the axles?

as you also haven't changed the gear lube have you checked it and when do you plan to install those rear 4.10 gears? be sure to see if the axle bearings stay together when you pull the shafts otherwise you're going to need new ones like i did. there is a seal like pressed in with the race and it comes out with the shaft on the bearing

you get rear shocks on yet?

your only getting that much flex because you dont have rear shocks to limit your flex

The gear lube you never changed...if there is any, is probably as thick as clay and comparably draging down your gas milage in the same way that driveing around with your e-break on would be.

i took a 5x5.5 rim and welded a plate over the hub hole, then welded a pipe to it. slid a thicker pipe over it half as long and then welded a stop on the end. its pritty much just a home made slide hammer welded to a old bent rim
