Going to finally install a new 3:73 diff in my 82, I have all new U joints (6) that I will replace while I'm there; what else should I change out along the line of bushings?
The TA's, Strut rods, Bilsteins etc are all fairly new.

Thumbs Up

Hey Phil..sounds like a fun project..things that can be replaced while in there..hmm..sounds like you have done a good bit back there..I am big on rear wheel bearings..if they check out ok as in end play get the grease tool from MAM..since you have the shafts off its only a little more and you can grease them up..other thing..maybe the rubber fuel lines on the tank..I guess it depends on how far you want to dig..but with the rear out there isn't much left back there..you can do a new spring..it may be best to wait and see what may need replaced before you blow your budget on stuff you can replace..
