Okay progress. I have the front third member locked and geared.
All un needed brackets on the axle have been torched, and I welded the upper gusset in (took my time not to warp housing).
Last night i tore out the old rotors and wheel bearing races. Then drove in new Bearing races, put on new vented rotors, and put on the wheel spacers.
Tonight if i can get time I will try to polish the welds on the axle and paint her up along with the knuckles and steering arms. Once dry I will slap that axle back together.
I will get pics on assembly of the Front axle. I forgot my camera the last few time i worked and I was more worried about progress than pictures.

Okay more tech. The previous pics of gear pattern was with setup bearings and the pinion depth was off when the new bearing was pressed on. Anyways i had decided to run it fubbared than i sadi fuck it i want it right. these pics are curret pics of the pattern.
Order of pictures are:
freshly painted housing with axle gusset welded in and ready for assembly
freshly painted steering knuckles
rebuilt/repainted factory aisin locking hubs
new fj rotors on Stock wheel hubs and wheel spacers to even track width with rear axle
remainder of parts to go back on/in the axle, spindle, dust sheild, shafts, etc.
Coast side pattern good imo
drive side pattern good one too.
a pretty 4cyl. thrid with a quicklock and 5.29 yukon gears properly setup.

Hell yeah! Good stuff man! Are those spanners on the third member?
sure is. That is backlash and preload adjustment.

Wow, pretty massive. Hopefully it looks better height and clearance wise with the 38's.

The offest looks good, its only going to come backwards on compression so this way it keeps way out of the firewall.
