Next is the front shaft........................

But I will be having Tom Woods build my next front shaft. My homemade one has been working, but I'm sure its out of balance. ha ha

I love the exhaust coming out the side like that. The whole project has come together very well!

Finally figured out my death wobble issue. The panhard bar bushings are dead. I just ordered new polybushings. Should be here in a few days.

The ones that are in there now were new two years ago. It hasn't even been driven 1000 miles since then. Somehow the originals lasted 192K miles without being replaced.

I'd be willing to bet the originals were rubber, not poly.

The originals were rubber. I replaced the originals with rubber. I think the new rubber was not the same as the original.

Decided to order some new poly bushings for the panhard. I'll give those a shot, if they end up dying I might go to heim-joints.

Ah, gotcha...when you mentioned ordering poly, I assumed your first replacements were also poly--which would explain the short life. Obviously not all rubber bushings are created equally either.

I have poly bushings in my radius arms, and they haven't worn out. I've used poly on a few land rovers over the years and they seems to last alright. And they are cheap enough if you can buy from the source in the UK. I can get stuff in two days with my supplier.

Things are nearly done.

Redid the Panhard bushings with new poly bushings.

The old ones were a bit knackered.

Drilled them around the rubber first. Then knocked out the metal bushing with a punch.
