Re: Ford TTB
Shilo, who cares about the tubes? Note had said mud, not rocks. Lowest point of contact is all that matters, which of course is the diff. I was thinking that the diff sits higher on the ttb than a solid axle but i don't guess that's possible since the axle shaft has to enter the hub and diff at right angles, and there's no joint at the diff. There is extra ttb arm material under the chunk casting that further kills clearance, and I'm not sure if it would be wise to shave that or not. It would probably be ok since the diff chunk strengthens that area pretty well... might be worth a closer look. The rear axle usually gets hung up first so it doesn't matter much in the end. How much can a solid D44 be shaved? Anybody have pics? [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
