Installed new seals and then both side axle shafts and birfs with plenty of grease. Always a messy job.
Then assembled everything in reverse order from above, including a hub from off our spare parts shelf to replace the broken unit.
You should notice we did not do an upgrade to the IFS vented rotors at this time to save a little cash. It will get done during a future routine brake job. Axle ready to put back under the rig:
Changing gears a little, we take a look at the Trail Gear front spring hanger. It is about 1.5 to 2 times thicker than the factory hangers making it super beefy for this application:
With the frame having already been prepped, we are able to make a few measurements and clamp the assembly into position:
And weld it into place:
