1996 EB w/5.8 TOO much lift, 44" Mudders & 5:43-5:38's
Picked up some Grade 8 fasteners and installed them; I was using regular bolts for the mock up.
Dumb question:along with JBG's radius arms and drop brackets. (notice my shop seats are Bronco Buckets :thumbup )
Yes they are threaded. The picture you showed, has the threads covered with a plastic cap so they don't get damaged during shipping. Look at the pics below:Dumb question:
Are the radius arms threaded at the ends? :brownbag
Your pic and JBG's website pic appears as though they aren't.
Pics of the JBG radius arms is what originally drew me to your thread.
How do you like them?
Awesome; thanks for the confirmation. :beerYes they are threaded. The picture you showed, has the threads covered with a plastic cap so they don't get damaged during shipping. Look at the pics below:
I like them so far.... opc1:
Yup, as well as Red, Blue, Yellow, Purple, Orange and Green.So Rust Bullet comes in black now, eh?
When I used it 12-13+ years ago it came in only one color: silver.
Sorry I didn't take any pictures during the set up, but I took it apart and put it together too many times and was starting to get a little tired. :doh0715:
In the end, I had a good pattern on the drive side...
... and the coast side. :thumbup
Yes, all adjustments are made by shimming. Removing shims increases pinion bearing preload, while adding shims decreases preload. The same goes for how gears mesh: by changing how close the pinion gear is to the ring gear center line, this is done by removing shims from one side and adding them to the other side of the carrier. Basically by, removing the bearings and shims from both sides and keeping them separate; if you took one shim from the right side and added it to the lefts side and reassembled, you actually moved the ring gear to the right. If you needed to move it left, you would do the opposite. The backlash is done with a dial indicator.You got the correct patterns via the shims?
