    Yea, FML. I woke up last night thinking that I may have pushed the bearing race in too far when I put the old axles back in. So now Iím going to pull the shaft again to make sure the bearing race is snugged up to the bearings.

    It ainít government work unless itís done twice.

    And on Tuesday reach out to Carbon.

    Are these Carbon 35 spline? I broke one of theirs yesterday. Mine are tapered down, making the break point the weakest spot. Yours look more like the shaft is the same thickness all the way down.

    Thatís a bummer about the break. The ones I have are 35 spline and taper down (2 steps - with the second one near the splines)too.

    I ended up file the splines and they cleaned up nicely. I had the option to send back or file down, with the warranty remaining intact. I have that in writing.

    I was able to resolve the retainer plate issue as well.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
