Thanks Randy, I was able to find new Yukon ring and Pinion off Amazon as well as a Yukon master rebuild kit. If we got them locally, they would have to special order them and it would cost more. I have Prime so I can get them here sooner and cheaper for the same brand.

I know you know but, Make sure you flush out that housing real good! Lots of metal in there. I would change axle bearings/seals as well.

Oh you know it Randy. The parts should all be here middle of next week. if tony hasn't retuned from NY by then, I'll just take it to the machine shop and have them rebuild it for me.He took the only car with a fully functioning a/c to NY this afternoon. The Runners a/c works great but is waiting for its rear end. Camaro's great but no a/c, CSI, no a/c and no starter. Other Camaro is...well...a long way off. Guess I'll be spending a lot of time at home.

I'm just playing with your emotions badAndy.

It's actually a remand LS we picked up for a customer pay job we are doing this weekend. It's going in his daily commuter truck.

We finally got the kinks ironed out of the 4Runner and she purrs like a kitten, sure she's still a bit slow, but how fast would you really want to go in one of those things all up in the air like that anyway?

Today we are working on the wiring for the Runner toad. He is going to be using a 7pin to 4pin connector at the bus and just run 4pin wires to the toad. Lets all hope the turn signals come out correctly.
