    so now i got a question... how low can i go before fucking the alignment so bad it cant be adjusted to with in specs??? and if i take the half shafts apart (ie; leave one end in the transfer case and one end in the hub while having the center section removed) will that fuck anything up???

    OK thanx, should i then plug the holes where the halfshaft sits so the fluid doesnt come out of the transfercase, or does that matter if i am not using the transfercase???

    the fluid wont come out, just take it off at the innter hub. It is enclosed so the fluid wont come out.

    actually hit the torsion bar.... i mean really hit then hard... hit it right near the keys and it will knock the rust free..

    well this is a picture of me sitting 3.5/3 with the keys upfront



    my passengers key was rusted on it took like 2 hours to get off..what i suggest is getting some LPF industrial lube (comes in a can like wd40 only green with big LPF in red on it) soak the keys and the torsion bars where they connect to the keys, you will need a nice size mallet, use the puller and get the block out, so they key can hang down, if it doesnt hang down, you should have enough room to yank the torsion bar right out of the control arm, and you'll be able to turn it, and make the key turn, exposing most of it, have a buddy wack the key with a nice size hammer/sledge, while you yank on the torsion bar, it will come off...

    anyway i had to crank the bolts ALL the way up, i have a few pics on here with the keys down, fender resting on tire. alot of poping up front, had to get the balljoints replaced with will prolly have to happen to you as well..crank the bolts all the way up, and you should be ok, no noises upfront now that the bolts are in all the way.
