Installed my 3:73s yesterday

Just wanted to thank Blue70SS for his posts and pictures. Before I started my install I searched and found this thread. It was a great help.

The GM service manual gets you to a step that states:
ďUsing the appropriate tool, separate the wheel drive shaft from the knuckle. Remove the knuckle assemblyĒ

Knowing that the drive shaft can be pulled out by only removing the toe in strut bolt, the top knuckle bolt and removing the ABS line from the toe in strut was a real time saver.

Also in the GM Service manual it states to NOT re-use the wheel drive shaft nuts, the inner drive shaft washers and the propeller shaft bolts (OK, I couldnít find any propeller and thinking there was an amphibi car option I missed, I got distracted for a moment ). For us older folks we call it a drive shaft. Not sure why they emphatically state to not reuse them, but Iím no metallurgist. So I ordered them from the dealer, $45 plus tax. Iím betting itís a bean counter and lawyer driven statement.

I took the diff to J&S Gears in Huntington Bach CA to install the gears and press off the bushings (did the Pfadt bushing too). He only charged me $25 to remove the bushings, but said heíd never do that again

It was interesting too to see all the number on the original pinion gear too.

So thanks again to Blue70SS for the DIY install help.

Glad it helped someone! Nice to have all that done isn't it. FYI, top speed shops including Lingenfelter and 2 local top tier GM service departments don't replace the drive shaft bolts - they say GM says that on alot of things. (I had brought it to their attention from factory manuals too).

Just had mine ripped apart again for LPE 3.70 gears, Jannetty Posi clutch fix kit, Twin Lingenfelter fuel pumps, and higher 1400 HP rated CVs. But done at Chevy dealer on lift.... wish I had one.
