Re: jimmyspy's '02 4x4

Havenít done anything to the truck since my last post, other than clean the dust out of it.

I did pick up a new welder. (This ties in with the parts in my last picture)

Step one is to get some 90w and top off the differential. This will also tell you how low you are. Leaks can be deceiving, it often looks worse than it actually is.

Re: jimmyspy's '02 4x4

Took the truck back up to bundy hill today. This was my third trip up there, so I got a little more ballsy with the obstacles I was attempting. Truck kept up with my ego for the most part. There...

Ohhhhh. Ok, I know what you were referring to now. The 5125s are non-adjustable in that regard.

My understanding was that the valving was fixed from the factory (not sure if this is what you meant or not). They offer two valving options in the 12" travel 5125s, each is a separate part #.

OP, did you end up going with the bilsteins? Looking for some feedback on them in the 255/70 valving. I've seen a few comments, including Vista's, that they're a little stiff in that valving.

As others have said, the forward shift is from your lift shackles. I have the same issue with my belltech shackles and expo leafs.


I also agree that your pinion angle looks a bit off. Maybe...

Re: jimmyspy's '02 4x4

That's a possibility, although autozone sells and stocks the pinion seal for the 8.8 rear, as well as the outer seals for both axels.

I agree with NAPAs unsatisfactory product stocking. Last...

If you index the pinion nut, and count the turns as you take it off, you can put it back on in the same location. This puts effectively the same preload on the pinion bearings. I've replaced a few...

You shouldn't rub anything on the inside. I've never run that wheel/tire size combo, but I bet you'll have to trim the valance a little. Other than that, I imagine they'll fit alright. I...

Depends on the backspacing of the wheels. My bet is that you'll have to do a little trimming.

It would be tight. If the truck is strictly street driven, you might be able to get away with minimal rubbing. But if you plan on wheeling the truck, you're gonna want some more room.
