It will also stink like a ****** ******. After the centers were out, we used a press to knock the outer metal rings out of the diff. Those things were in there, and it took quite a bit of force. Used some axle grease on the carrier, and pressed the new bushings in.

Installing the mazda comp bushings took about 3 hours, with the most time consuming event being getting the first bushing popped out. However, it was 100% totally worth it. The tranny finds gears so much better, just like how it used to.

Removing the old diff and putting in the new diff took another 3 hours. I really thought we could have it done in an hour, but we ran into a couple of stupid snags.

We leave em hangin in the tree's when we catch em stealing **** so others will think twice.

Damn that sucks. I setup a few brand new 2 ton AC units for an appartment complex, and a week later, some monday went there and totally destroyed a 800 dollar outside unit so he could get the coils out and sell them for probably 20 bucks. He cut all the wires going to it, took the top off and threw the fan assembly, bending the shaft when it hit the ground, cut the copper wires going to the compressor and fan. A week later someone goes back (probably the same monday) there and cuts all the temporary power wires going to the building. Cuts a 300 dollar piece of wire and probably sold it for 20 bucks. It's amazing how low people will go.

Reminds me of a sign where I used to work "Forget about the dogs, Beware of OWNER!"
