Rocks/Valleys today....


Destructive day...

I ate 2 D60 stubs/lockouts, one tie rod, and one shock (stuff I know of). Broke a tie rod on winch hill, fixed it on winch hill then 3 minutes later blew the RF stub/lockout. Then wheeled 3 wheel for a while. Tried the "new" trail and grenaded the other stub and lockout. My winch got a hell of a work out today. Not sure when the shock got bent though?

Tie rod was from a direct impact to the edge of a rock, the shock I have no idea, no marks on the body or the shaft from it being struc by anything.

1 RF Stub/Lockout-ate the bearing and seal in the spindle and marred up the spindle where the stub fits through it. The end of the spindle in the threaded area is untouched (nuts spun off with no issue). Damage to the spindle is marginal, I think I can clean it up and a new bearing with press back into it and seal up decent. The inner shaft has the ever so smallest twist in the splines, almost can't even see it.

1 LF Stub/Lockout-ate the bearing and seal in the spindle and marred up the spindle where the stub fits through it. The end of the spindle in the threaded area is untouched (nuts spun off with no issue). Damage to the spindle is marginal, I think I can clean it up and a new bearing with press back into it and seal up decent.

1 Chevy Tie rod #2026R (if I recall correctly).

1 Skyjacker shock

The lock right looks good, no damage to the teeth or the pins. This trip makes for 3 (total overall) shattered D60 Stubs on this lock right and have yet to damage it .

I will have spicer 35 splines tomorrow...

I am pretty sure the stubs were pretty fatiqued from the last year of non-stop abuse they have been given, esp. after the badlands last month.

30 years old? Mines a 95 not a 79.

And the spicer 35 splines are new"er" its the best I can do at the moment short of putting stock 30 spline stubs back in. Figure the spicers will be better then the yukons.

John, I've got a set of ballistic fab double shear high steer arms for a D60 that are just collecting dust if you're interested. They use 7/8 heims.
