Need a Spot
Thing is I really hate stickers on the exterior but loving the look with the skid.

i've tried to put as much skid under suzi as i can. she is often using it.
suzi the psychic has many stickers. even some inside.
i also use paint pens to record damage by date/location...….. she is pretty well marked-up.

been able to make better access to so much of "the shop", that i'm upgrading some tooling.
some new toys to play with!
expect to get the front axle apart before xmas.

occasionally i stop getting distracted, and do something. then do it very slowly.
it took a long time to remove skidstuff.
right axle came out easy, after wheel, hub/circlip, balljoint and tierod removed.

already have the driveshaft disconnected- still need to unbolt left axle and 3 differential mounts.
then look at it.
moving right along- starting to "plan" some early adventures.

so-as suspected- the inner axle(differential output shaft?) is broken.
[Linked Image from i301.photobucket.com]
there should be splines!!!
i can see the stub in the 3rd member, from the rightside, and will experiment with retrieving stub w/o removing 3rd.
'could be interesting to know, for out on the trail...…..
will try remember to report results.

hmmm...…. used to be able to edit my posts. seem to have lost that option?
anyways-
i would have been able to do this with out removing the differential carrier(front axle assembly),on the trail.
[Linked Image from i301.photobucket.com]
good to know.
used a thin piece of stock to pop the splined axle remnant out of the diff., and a magnetic pickup tool to fish it out with.
i have a couple replacement inner axles coming from trailtough.
mabe i can fix the windows?
looking forward

continuing with trail repair method...…..
i have replace the axle assembly, w/out the left inner axle, and will now see what must be removed to install it(as if in the "bush").
[Linked Image from i301.photobucket.com]
i think i can leave the outer axle in place- mabe just unbolt the ball joint?
while waiting for parts, i decided to mabe monkey w/the a-arm mounting, so i'm gonna take more apart anyway.
didn't do more than think about the windows...…..

suzi the psychic was never supposed to see the abuse she endures.
experimenting with adjusting the a-arm mounting- changing the angle they've been forced to at the ball joint....
mocking some mounts 1 1/2" lower than stock, to see how it articulates. also starting to rustle some 33x10.5x15" tires for fitment checking.

inspection of a-arms reveals an interesting anomaly.
the rear bushing has been driven forward(in the arm) @3/8". the front bushing is seated properly.
wear patterns in the rear mount show the a-arm has been shoved rearward.... @3/8".
poor suzi is showing signs of being driven by feel.
when i replace the bushings, i will need to relocate the front mounts...… forward...…. i'll bet @3/8".
have some ideas on how to compensate, and harden the forward mounts at the same time(?).
they drop off that tube between the chassis rails. kinda lightweight. can't imagine how they could get bent.....
this is how she rolls.

some progress. started buttering some steel pieces after cutting stuff out of the way.....
i suspect the arms will hang somewhere around here. pressed new bushings in 'em.

optimistic this will evolve.
