It's time for a celebration. HAGAR finally returned home. He is finally re-united with HELGA, now I can make comparisons between the two of them to figure some things out.

Two of my boys have a State Trap tournament tomorrow so I will miss out on the ride with everyone else here, but maybe next weekend. I don't know though, He's pretty anxious to play in the mud and have a few brews to celebrate, so may have to make a trip out some evening this coming week.

Here are some pics of him out at my office/cabin.

I think he's looking really snazzy with his new shoes on, what do you all think?

is this where a torsion bar tweak comes in?
my brother did this w/miss bitchy, but that was to fit 31's.
what else can be done for lift/clearance?
hagar looks great!

SWAMPERS WORKED WONDERFULLY, Made it through a slimy swamp area (6-8" of grease about 50 yards long) at a neighbor's house, in 2 wheel drive. Those tires throw HUGH hunks of mud everywhere, it was GREAT!! Had mud chunks the size of softballs on the roof and hood from front to back. Even had a couple inside (oops, left the windows down) but oh well, that's part of it.

SHOULD HAVE TAKEN PICTURES OF HIM IN ALL HIS GLORY, but was so excited I went straight home and gave him his first battle's bath.

I drove through it in 2-wheel drive only because I couldn't get the hubs to lock in, what's the deal? They are the stock "Automatic" hubs but they worked before all the front-end work was done and now they don't. Any ideas what the problem may be?

I installed the Old Man Emu lift so it should have come out level, right? Will have to see what's up with that also??

Front is already lifted as high as it will go, about 1.75". If I go any farther the CV boot will drag on the bottom arm.

I have been doing a lot of research here and in the service manual and I think the hubs just need to be taken apart, cleaned and reassembled. (I HOPE!!), Still think I'll look into getting some manual hubs, just gotta figure out where.

Either disassemble the auto hubs, clean and relube with light application of white lithium grease...or toss them puppies and get some Aisin manual hubs from Amazon or similar.

Your rear springs must not be sagged like all the ones I've worn out...Hagar is high in the back.

I found the Aisin Hub part number (FHM002) on Rock Auto for $97.79 each, didn't find any cheaper during my web search, so guess I'll order them.

Just to verify, the spline count is 28, correct?

I've done some measuring and the back is approximately 1" higher. I don't really like it either, looks like HAGAR is slouching and depressed, instead of standing tall and proud.

I had some help from a guy who installed the front torsion bars and I wasn't there when he put them in. After talking to him, he said the bump stops would only allow the front to go that far. I thought it was the CV boots that were in danger.

I know I've read something on here about trimming the bump stops down so the lift can be fully utilized, IS THAT CORRECT?? I have the old bump stops that I can experiment with (i put new ones on), would this allow me to increase the front lift to even out HAGAR's stance?

Thanks for the information.

I finally got the Aisin Hubs in, just gotta find time to install them, Maybe this next weekend.

Still trying to find out about trimming the bump stops to allow more front lift with the torsion bars. (from message above)
