Re: "The Bucket" project diary

Dana 60 frontend is almost complete now. It's got all new seals, axle ujoints & kingpin bushings. Thankfully all the bearings looked like new & were not needed. Rotors have been turned & calipers rebuilt. Rearend already came with a Detroit locker in it, so we decided to go ahead while it was apart & install a Lock Right for the frontend.
To avoid the wobble factor, eliminating the king pin spring & making plates for that & the crossover steering arm (more pics to come for that part).
