Re: Hello from MO!

Welcome! Where are you located?
With you, we are now four strong in the Show-Me State (of the active members)!
NWMO is near Maryville, FarmerJack is in Gasconade County, and I am in Kirkwood, a 'burb of STL (whence my handle).

Now, if I had a garage for three vehicles, I would search for a sibling of Goldie's and do the Mad Max mufti!

yes, before the upgrade i was banning 2-4 "new users" a day (their emails show up on anti-spam lists). since the up date, I have not seen one of them. I did not realize how much work you all were putting into keeping spam off the forum.

Nice work.
May I add?
PROPS, PAUL !

Re: severe vibration above 50 mph on acceleration

I've had excellent luck with GSP axles, although I installed them 10 years ago, so cannot speak for recent production.
Mine were from Rock Auto. Advance also carried them - at least a few years ago - first under the GSP brand and then later under its own label (Tough One?).

Re: severe vibration above 50 mph on acceleration

Congrats! We know this has been bedeviling you for "a while!"

Re: First issue

The gear slid on as using butter. :D I did use anti-seize as well on the installation. While it is highly unlikely I ...
