Made A Decision

I was bouncing back and forth between new seats or RCV axles. I chose the RCV's. Cant wait to get them installed.

Good choice imo. The seats can always wait. Would have been my choice too.

I was breaking axles like crazy before my rcv's went in. I still haven't broken a seat. Good choice in my oppinion.

I have a jeep and it goes over shit.

Little tip on installing the boots. Put the shaft in with the boot in place. Tighten down everything. The unit bearing and the large nut on the shaft. You can even put the brakes back on. Now the shaft is in there tight. Then take a small crow bar and pry the orange boot on. You do not even need the tool they send you. They will slip on that easy.

Done ..... Not that bad. I did install Superior Front Axle Tube Seals. Tight fit to the CV seal. I will be watching this closely.
The parking lot test drive: Smoother turning. Off road we shall see.
