Let's move it to the weekend after the MORG; Jan 10th. How does that look for everybody?


Sorry Don, I am out for that weekend. Going to Johnson Valley rock crawling.

OK, we'll see who's around for that weekend. If it's a total bust that's not the end of the world. I didn't need to do the front so much as the rear; I was just wanting to get all 4 done before taking her in for an alignment. But if worst comes to worst I suppose I can have just the rear aligned. (that should confuse the tire shop guys)

Hi Don;

We can come out and help on Sunday the 11th, but we have plans for the 10th. I know I'm not the best grease-monkey, but I'll do what I can...

Sunday is fine with me. Let's see how things look for Justin and anybody else who wants to come out.

I heard Jared say he wanted to help you bleed your brakes.

I know he'll be hugely disappointed to learn I don't have to pull the brake lines for the front. Maybe just for him we'll crack one open anyway.

Don, out of interest how does it feel now the bushes and air spings on the back have settled in?

I haven't driven it enough to say. After driving home from British Recyclers it's been sitting in the driveway other than a short 1/2 mile loop around the neighborhood to test the brakes after I re-bled them.

On the initial drive home I could feel a difference. Previously the back end was getting pretty squirrely at highway speeds. In a fast(ish) sweeper or lane change it felt like the rear was a half-step behind the front and it wanted to sort of wallow. It made it much more tiring to drive as you always had to stay on top of it that extra little bit. That tendency is gone now, it seems to be behaving about how I would expect from a new stock vehicle. The only downside I can feel is perhaps a bit more initial impact harshness over sharp edged bumps, but I doubt anybody else would notice unless they had a good baseline to compare it to.

OK, so right now it looks like the 11th is our go-date for doing the front of the truck. Is this good with everybody? Justin? It's your shop after all!

Looks like Rob is out of town that weekend, but we've got Jerin and myself. Anybody else want to join the fun?

Slavi will as well be here with me and able to lend a hand if needed.

Is this just a bushingfest? I need to replace the oil seal on the LT230 front output shaft and could use a lift and extra hands. I planned on trying this Sat on the driveway, but now rethinking.

I can't speak for everyone, but we did some work on Alyson's truck last time.

But there will be less people there, so it's hard to gauge this time around.

Mike. Are you certain it's the output seal? The intermediate shaft s a common leaker on the lt230. I've done two.

My LT230 front output shaft seal is what introduced me to NCLR. It's definitely a driveway doable project. It would take Graeme about 30 min s/f and would take me about 90min. ;-) Don't forget the "special little tool" for the DS nuts ;-)

I'm more than happy to help with other projects, but I expect to use most of the day to finish up my truck.

Hey Don, all -- a couple of things for next Sunday:

1. What time did you want me to be there, Don? I don't know how early you & Justin worked things out to be, but I can get over there sooner than the usual 10AM.
2. Is anyone else doing work after we finish the front bushings on the LR3? I know Mike mentioned looking at his RRC output shaft seal. If so, even more a reason to get started early.

I'll plan to be there about 8:30. Of course, it's like 45 minutes for me instead of 2 hrs for you bay guys.
