VERY nice work as always, Keith. Even the rear drums cleaned up nicely.

Everything's looking good.

Hello Chris,

We are putting airbags on it. According to the installation it only requires 2 leaf springs. I went ahead and blasted and primed all of them just in case.

Nice work. Was it easy to pull the yoke of? I will have to do that, to be able to change the seal.

I used a 2 jaw puller. No problem with it coming off. I would guess with a leaking seal the yoke might slip off easier because the rear end grease may act like penetrating fluid.

Thanks for compliments. I can't think of any place that surprised me about rust. What did surprise me was the 1/4 panel on the right side had a fiberglass patch panel. I had heard of them ,but that is the first one I ever ran in to. The second surprise was a used left 1/4 panel and rocker panel brazed on top of the original rusted 1/4 and rocker. Look at post 318.
