Thanks out to Kenny for his gracious help today. Here's what we did:
New Years Day! SO, out with the old ...
In with the new:
Breaking down c200
wheeling away c200. We thank you for your service :salute:
Temporary fix: Cannibalized c200 pinion yoke to make a spacer so that the DS will mate up with m226 yoke. Drilled 4 new holes and used longer bolts. Works like a champ. This will be replaced when 456 gears are installed with new pinion yoke. At that time Ill have JE Reel fab a new pinion flange that will be 4 bolt. But this worked great thanks to Kenny's genius. :rockin:
Setting new spring perches (penski may deem these familiar) Thanks Aaron!

Lots of leftover crap!
We used the frontier ebrake lines which was cool cause they're longer. We swapped the calipers cause we were lazy and didnt feel like bleeding the brakes so we just cut the old mounts and welded them in after we swapped the axles. WAS really super easy this way. Drove it home 70 mph home so all is good. Although my speedo works the X doesnt seem to like the new axle because abs, vdc and slip lights are on. Will have to inverstigate this tomorrow. And then on to wiring the locker. Stay tuned
