I built my tie rods and then placed this order today. Pretty funny the first time I work on it in 2.5 months is also the day somebody asks for updates. Pretty much been waiting until I had the cash to order these parts.

You were still using the differential correct? If so you'll need a second rotor and caliper because when you lone up one side, the other will keep going.

Well, the thing is, I originally bought it with the intention of cutting most of the shafts off and attaching cv joints to it to make an independent suspension, right? And I did pretty well give up on that just cause my dad didn't have near as many milling tools as he thought he did and it would have been too expensive to buy all the tools to machine my cv parts. So now I have this diff that's only like 35" shoulder to shoulder but my front end was already done at 38.5" shoulder to shoulder. Since I plan to drive this thing 100% off road anyway I figure at this point a solid axle will probably be better performance wise anyway so f it, I'm just gonna see if I can return the diff.
