Jaye Yes Thank you. Assembly manual terrible black n white
Inline tube picture ( negative) backwards terrible . Thank you Larry I will watch
Jaye it’s the long blue spring over the long silver cad part that threw me off . Your picture made me fine it out. Every other picture terrible. And I am terrible mechanic.
But I’ll get it
This was the missing link I got it. Manual does not even show this part. Guess it is behind the longer arm
Do you think I just need the clamps. Is that gonna be tight after tightened?
Looks correct. It looks like the u-joint caps have the c-clips on he inside,which centers the u-joint not the yoke. I think the u-bolts are all that you need. I’ll get them sent.
That doesn't go in a 12bolt or 10bolt
Sorry for hacking you thread but, why are you using different rear control arms with the chevy 12 bolt? are these different from a BOP 10 bolt?
I have used 10-bolt upper arms with a 12-boot,and not had any issues,but I have seen where the ends of the Chevy arms are cut different than the 10-bolt arms.
Awwwh , No What. Wait . You guys just threw a curve ball! Brain what did he say? Hah!
I thought I just showed you guys the modifications I did on uppers?
C’mon I gotta get on the street!!
I just got correct U joint clamps! Today for the flat yoke Pontiac driveshaft
Josehf I modified the ends on the uppers. We good
Look back on 1st page on this thread
Yes,there was a reinforcement on the sides of the 12-bolt uppers arms. When looking at the open end of the arms,where they mount to the rearend,one style is dimpled-down,and the other style is left straight or more open.
Yes that’s why I welded plate on the one side. Because it was trimmed for clearance issues. I guess the plate gives it more strength. When you are removing metal
Jaye you were big help. Got r done
Grease on backing plate snubs ready to go
