Default EMS FREE SPIN KIT INSTALLED......FINALLY!!!!!

after getting all the parts after i came back to iraq last time.....this time at home i finally got it installed.....first let me tell you some quick things i learned.....

HERE IS THE TOP 11 THINGS I LEARNED WHILE INSTALLING MY EMS FREE SPIN HUB KIT.

1. axle dust shields are in the same box as the wheel bearings and seals, not in the box with the dust seals like they should be, dont make the same mistake i did and get half the hub installed and find them cause you thought they was part of the hub seal......go to #5 for further instruction on this problem.......

2. Dana 60 axles need a case spreader or a 6 foot prybar to get the differential out, i suggest the case spreader, but the 6 foot pry bar works if you take the axle completely out like i did, if not for the differential being stuck i wouldnt of took the axle out......

3. just cause they send you 2 different spider gear cross pin bolts dosent mean you will use either one, my trucks cross pin had a roll pin in it and was a real pain to get out, this is only a problem if stepping up to 35 spline axles as they require new spider gears, you will reuse your factory cross pin and not the new one they send you with the new gears......

4. power wash your axle really good before pulling anything out, especially the axle tubes or you will be cleaning bearings and races later, ask me how i know this tiny jewel of info.....

5. once the spindles are bolted on, they are almost impossible to get the bolts off cause of the way they are installed, i had to buy 4 new Nylocks cause of this.....

6. if you install MOOG greasable upper ball joints, grease them and take the zerks out before installing the axle shafts, cause the zerks will hit the ears on the 1480 u-joints and you will have to cut the zerk in half and seal it with RTV like i had to do......

7. you dont use all of the parts supplied with the lock outs, trust me, it really screwed me up, the stub axles are for a 1989 and newer Dana 60 Ford axle and dont require the inner retainer ring like the old 78-79 axles do, i wasted 30 minutes figuring this out......

8. dont bother trying to take the hub apart if stepping up to 35 spline axles like me, take the 4 bolts out of the back of the hub and pull everything as one unit, that big nut in the middle of the unit bearing does nothing but lock it to the axle, dont waste your time......

9. dont let your idiot brother put a castle nut on 2 threads and try and drive a tie rod out of the passenger side steering arm with a hammer, it will cost you 116.00 dollars to fix that problem, ask me how i know.....

10. you HAVE to remove the differential to pull out all the old seals, no way around it, so please revert back to #2 for further instructions on this.....

11. dont waste your money on the "delete kit" for the CAD, its a flat piece of steel with 4 holes drilled in it and a gasket to bolt over the hole where the CAD goes, it cost me like 90 bucks, make it at home......

NOW, YOU ASK YOURSELF, WAS THIS WORTH IT......YES, EVEN THOUGH I WONT BE DRIVING THE TRUCK FOR ANOTHER 10 MONTHS UNTIL I COME HOME NEXT APRIL, I AM HAPPY ITS DONE.....

I WILL HAVE A FULL TECH WRITE UP ON THE INSTALL WITH SOME PICTURES HERE IN THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS, IM PRESENTLY IN BAGHDAD AWAITING TRANSPORT BACK TO MY BASE SO I WILL UPDATE THIS WHEN I GET BACK TO MY WORK COMPUTER.......PEACE......

if you have everything, it should take a long day to do it, it took me about 2 1/2 days to do it......the only thing you need to buy that dosent come in the kit is 2 1480 u-joints if you step up to 35 spline axles, if staying with stock axles and just installing a factory spline one piece long side axle you dont have as much BS to deal with......its well worth the 35 spline axle upgrade though if you race, wheel or pull your truck......
