finally found a set of axles for the LX!

amazing how hard it is to find axles cheap when you need them.

anyway my old set up was a lincoln markvii rear disk to disk brake lines and all. when i pulled my rear to weld the torque boxes i noticed how much of a hack job the guy who installed it before i owned it did. so... i stripped it down to a bare housing. had the rear freshened up with new bearings and seals. ordered all new stainless lines for a v8 fox from prop valve back. bill from CJ's found me a brake hose bracket for a v8 car. installed a new hose for a v8 car then got new caliper hoses for an SVO (cost a damn fortune when i was able to find them)

went to the scrap yard and pulled 2 93+ ranger axles. and im not really sure why i had 93+ stuck in my head. but anyway went back and broke 2 cross pin bolts. so i effed myself on getting the pre 93 axles.

bought a house so i havent had much time to mess with the car. and just now found a set of ranger axles for 100 shipped from the shop i do online tech for!

might actually get to drive it in a month or so!

so my winter project was
UPR pro adjustable lowers
UPR radius arm uppers
4cyl springs
upr torque box kit
lakewood 50/50's
welded torque boxes
new brake lines/ hoses
new seals and bearings
flipped SVO/lincoln brakes
t rex pump
new clutch should be here soon
nitrous kit should be here any day now...

cant wait to run her!
