Talking Time for some much needed lovin.

So I finally got a full time job instead of a seasonal job and I can finally afford to get my truck back into the condition I've always wanted it to be in. And I'm starting from the back and working towards the front (aka cheap to expensive). I've already decided to install a new clutch pack in the rear diff instead of going with a true locker (maybe down the road I'll regear and install lockers). And I'm also replacing all the u joints with moog super u joints 295 in the front and the rear shafts. I'll also be replacing the carrier bearing with a timken hb88508a. Then I'll be getting my trans rebuilt with a few things from John Wood. Still waiting to talk to him about it.

I'm kinda curious if there is anything else that should be replaced or any parts that I should look into while doing all this upgrading/repairs that I may have over looked. Or any input from anybody that has done anything similar and would like to share what they did and how well it performed for them. Because I'd really hate to buy something that's no good and have to crawl back under it and do some rework.

Thanks in advance.

I honestly think they are the stock u joints. I've never changed them and I bought it when it was 6 years old. So I'm not sure what the previous owner did to it. But I'm sure it needs new ones with grease zerts.

Nongreasable joints are actual stronger. Spicer is the best.

Is something wrong with your rear diff? I assume one wheel wonder?

I looked into spicer. Was all gung-ho about it. Then couldn't find a dealer.

Yup one tire fire and I have a terrible vibration at takeoff (accrediting the u joints for that as well).

So I just got my rebuild kit for my diff and I was looking over the install instructions. And I'm not seeing how this can be done without pulling the whole banjo. Any hints as to how is done?
