Also, while you have the reamer out are you planning to ream the TRE for the draglink? And a spare set too?

I saw no caster adjusters on the upper balljoints, just the threaded insets that came with the moog balljoints.

And yus, im gonna ream out that TRE on the drill press, i was getting the 2 on the knuckles in place so i can double check my measurements for the DOM

Spare set sounds like a good idea, nice to have the spare reamed up too.

The threaded inserts is what im talking about. I pulled mine when i tore down the axle, and replaced with the new ones that came with the upper BJ's which are just straight through- no offset.

My caster was off and had me wondering. I found the threaded inserts i removed and sure as shizzle they were offset, one is a 6 and one is a 10.
DOH!

I put them in and tried my best to align it using caveman methods but i have given up and will be taking it down to get aligned.

Mine were straight through as well, but I'm going to go try and dig up some info. again on those guys. there must be instructions. I saw something not long ago that was showing various offsets, that much like the TTB adjustable upper bushings, as you turn it you can slightly change Caster and/or Camber.

I would think the torque spec on that can be moved somewhat Tim. Wasn't it only like 40ftlbs. so how much more of a turn do you get with a range, say of between 35 and 50ft lbs? I wonder? I mean, what are they really for up top? I'm thinking one of the purposes is to have a new fresh inner wall with which the balljoint will slide into. That plus the camber/caster adjustability.

Besides the upper camber adjusters there are camber shim plates available that are placed on the knuckle between the spindle and knuckle.

These seem to be so rare i cant find info on the net about them. However, i have seen them in person at dogonmuts place they do exist.

Wait, i take that back i found some:

Seems car quest may also sell these.

That was a rather ominous start. That was definitely the most unpredicatable, and thusly hardest part of the whole operation.

I hope you are soaking.

yep, plus all those tools, including the nice 1/2" craftsman upper left. had soaked it several days prior, each day, for a torch we were heating the arm with one of those little green propane guys with brass nozel. The puller (and most of the other tools) broke while cranking with about a 3foot pipe on the wrenches for leverage. Not sure what the issue was. These things can be that way....tried lightly hammering as well.

plus Todd is strong.

needless to say the other pitman went on with anti-seize. If ever I pull it again, I hope it comes easier (pre-warning...keep the minds out of the gutter)

I seen on some chevy gear boxes where the splines actually twist inside the pitman arm...not much but enough to make it a nightmare to get off.

stock upper coil buckets then? JBG F*ed you? How does the forward movement look compared to stock 78-9? and compared to the JBG "replicas"?

I did get the JBG repos, but it just seemed like the stockers fit the truck better...Not sure why...I am pretty sure i have them about where we did on yours. I spent quite awhile making sure i am the same side to side.
