Right that's exactly it. Let's see...I did a few snow runs, Moab, TBP, Ouray, Slaughterhouse, Chinamans, and a few miles of on-road in the snow during winter - but exactly. I would like to not only delay the inevitable, I would like to get it right. If nobody has it I might have to have a chat with our friendly parts manager CDan and see what I can do. And then I'll spread the love

I'll share the pain and spread the love as well...

I want to build the Piggy front end w/ 60 knuckles - and do it right the first time.

The idea of the club having some expensive SSTs for the benefit of members has merit in my mind... another motivation for membership: benefits!

It could be 'deployed' at the WBPP, for instance...

Agreed...Seems to me that many of the SSTs you need/want are limited use items and not something everyone needs to have in their toolbox...I like the idea of having "club tools" that members can borrow

$112. It's backordered until Jan. 28, if you want one call up OTC tools. TJ is borrowing one, it sounds like I'll get use of it, and maybe we can share it around. If I use it before mine arrives you can come borrow mine.

At the next meeting we should propose the club buying that SST. It is only needed when doing initial setup of axles with parts that were never 'married', once you get the bottom shim set up the top ones are changed for proper preload with new bearings. I have never done that with my axle though. Also if a guy/gal is having early seal failure it is a good thing to check. Few do it because of the cost so it would be a good thing for a club to have to share IMHO...

The hardest part about lending tools is keeping track of who has them. Who would be in charge of the tool tracking and of course monitoring the condition of the club tools?
