thanks for the ATV jack idea.... I have a Pit bull jack I use on my harley and I will give that a try when I install my new rear....
Rear end is out of the car. I actually used an atv jack from HF to pull it, that’s definitely the way to go. The center section is perfectly cradled. Drove it to a friend’s shop so he can set up the gears, going back with 3.73 which should tame it down for the street. I welded those tubes while back so it should hold up.
The jack I used
Getting the caps off the spherical bushings was a real bitch too. Hope I don’t have to do that again for awhile.
