Power Stop Brakes

Was getting a ton of noise from my front brakes. Squealing primarily in reverse but they started doing it in forward as well. I was still on factory calipers which were almost 17 years old. Purchased and installed a Power Stop brake kit
KC137-36 Z36. I still second guess whether I should have upgraded to the 338 mm sport brakes or gone the 5th Gen conversion route but these seem to work very well for the price. After install I also fully flushed the system with Lucas synthetic brake fluid.

RCI gas tank skid

Stock gas tank skid served its purpose but it was time to upgrade. Ordered and installed an upgrade from RCI Metalworks.

Started to get a ton of play in the rear pinion. Decided it was finally time to re gear. Sent the diffs out to East Coast Gear Supply for Nitro 4.56ís and a Harrop/Eaton E locker. Canít wait to get home from New Mexico and get these installed.

I think so too! I hope to not only regain some of the drivability that I seem to have lost with stock gears and 33ís but gas mileage as well. I canít wait to see what a difference the lower gears make while wheeling and the ability to have a locker in 2WD or 4WD will be pretty sweet.

A lot going on lately and havenít really posted in a while. Truck went back together really well. Took a couple weeks to get the 500 mile break-in and oil change done. Did a few easy trails just to run the 4WD through its paces and the locker seems to perform really well. Did a local trail called Rocky Gap about a week ago with a few buddies. Gears and lockers make a real difference and I couldnít be happier with them. I did end up losing alignment really for the first time while off roading with this truck. Also found my SRS airbag light coming on intermittently. Had my buddy scan for codes and pulled a few with the SRS airbag system and with the ABS system but on lights on except for the airbag. Dropped it off at the alignment shop and had my new tie rods installed and aligned (I was on 17 yo factory tie rods) and they rescanned the computer. We determined, which according to my research here on the forum that the clock spring is going bad. New one should be here in a few days.
