Well I need a new stub shaft, new radius arm bushing on the drivers side and I had to install my 2.5" coil spacers.

So we needed to fix this


With parts from this

Removed the TTB from the parts truck


My new spare D44 third member, just in case I wreck another one

Working on replacing the Radius arm bushing, Yeah it takes 3 ratchet straps and a come along

Pulling out the broken shaft

The carnage

Yeah that's a 4 car garage

I have washed my arms and hands 10 times and they are still dirty. That truck and garage and parts truck are dirty as can be.

Wash the truck before you work on it, you'll come out cleaner in the end.

Also, you're willing to grind rivets to pull the TTB, but not to pull the RA bracket? I don't understand that at all. RA bushings are *so* much simpler when you just drop the bracket.

we didnt grind any rivets. we ground through a u-bolt it took 2 minutes. There is 4 or so rivets to grind and knock out. Our come-along didnt actually take that long.

We used the grinder on the u-bolts for about 4 seconds. The radius arm wasnt too bad since we had to remove the shocks and coil anyway
