    Checking for a clicking sound got out of hand...

    Well...I heard something clicking so I went to tear it down to find the noise.
    Turns out the rear diff needed shims(imagine that)...but I was too late.
    It's now missing about 6 teeth. Luckily I have a spare in the tool box.
    I decided to go ahead and tear down the front end and check it out.
    It looks ok,but there were a few shavings present. I'll shim both before putting it back together.

    What I need from you people is a link to the thread talking about shimming the differentials(too tired to search,lol),and part number for the shims.
    Thanks.

    Anyway...here's how it sits for now...

    I'm tempted to go ahead and strip the rest off of the chassis and dye it black.

    that should be Jimmys link for shimming, its what I went off of. Basically I put two in and the driveshaft was tight tight and the bulkhead didnt seem to want to close up tight so I went to one and used 50K diff lube in it
