    Yeah that pretty good for that old tank.

    If you stuck your mellon out the window wearing that hat I seen you in the other day, the fuel economy won't be as flash

    Noticed a bit of a clunk in the front end though. Jacked it up and pulled a wheel off today and found it's the kingpin bearings. I don't want to know what the passenger side ones look like.. that can wait for another day, what a messy shit of a job.

    ah the joys of owning a $wd ( "4" and "$" are on the same button and I cocked up but then thought no no actually that is correct.)

    Nah I'm real lazy (it's on my to-do list) (you should see how long my to-do list is)


    e: they're extended above the chassis but it's obviously not extended enough, just haven't bothered taking one off yet to find out what diameter of hose I need to buy

    As MSL said you need extended breathers from your diffs/transfercase and gearbox perferably up high in the cabin.
    Kingpins and cvs have nothing to do with water in your diffs tho, there is a oil seal inbetween.
    Pack the shit out of the bearings,cv with cv grease,swivel hub full.done properly you wont get much change out of two tubes of grease.....if it is full of grease there is no room for water.
    If everything is packed full on ya outer swivel hub assy and swivel seals are done then with lots of deep water work you should get at least two years before doing it again.

    yah the inner axle seal was stuffed, all full of a lovely goop of gear oil, water and grease... filled it right up with grease when I did the wheel bearing but it got a bit diluted... will do the other side when I get a chance and hopefully it's not as bad and I can forget about it for a couple of years. Extending the breathers higher is on the list for whenever I next get 2 weeks off work (along with a heap of other things).
