#48896, "RE: Starting my AWD Conversion"
In response to In response to 18


          

Rear suspension and brakes are fully installed:



I guess I'm committed on the Talon conversion thing. I painted all of the stock suspension and brake parts. That should keep the rust at bay for a while. I changed one loose joint and one bad bushing (replaced with spare used parts). The Harbor Freight 12 ton press is paying for itself. I also replaced all of the ball joint boots. New axle seals were installed along with Redline Shock Proof gear lube, but I do not intend to perform any actual service to the stock rear LSD.




Moving on to the front, I pulled the complete front suspension and brakes. Dinged up fenders were removed as well. I dropped the transmission and finally got to use the Harbor Freight trans jack. It was very helpful since this trans weighs about 130 lbs (used a bathroom scale). The output shaft from the transmission came out with the transfer case. When I pulled the cover off of the transmission, I see that whoever rebuilt the transmission forgot a ball that retains that output shaft. That same genius also only installed one of the three bolts holding the rear roll stopper (mount) to the transmission. I found a few other missing bolts along the way. This is why I never let anyone work on my cars (that and I'm cheap).




After dropping the transmission, I see the one aftermarket part on the car. A no-name clutch and aluminum flywheel. The flywheel has part numbers on it, but nothing pops up in Google. I'll assume that it is an E-bay knock-off and will dump it in the garbage. The good news is that this proves that the car will drive fine with a light aluminum flywheel (I was waffling on whether to purchase an aluminum flywheel or resurface a stock iron one).
