success in replacing the axle bearings(and outer seals).
had to make an interesting jumble of items to act as a press plate, to remove the bearings- installation was more conventional.
something in the gearbox(?) is still howling, louder w/speed.
everything seems to work fine.
with ear plugs.
i had replace the transmission/transfercase mounts(and engine mounts) with some very solid "unbreakable" ones.
the stock things kept ripping the rubber apart.
perhaps i am just hearing more gear noise due to lack of isolation......?
perhaps another run in a couple weeks.
i took some pictures of the bearing work. it was interesting. i should learn how to post 'em.

'94 "tracker", with some parts from suzi the psychic.
other modifications made, with more to come.
some intentional.
suzitoo should get me fishing.
