Hey guys, I'm tearing my Summit down to a bare chassis so I can finally dye it black. While I had everything apart I thought I'd clean the diffs and what not. But, I found one of my Avid bearings had seized up on the outer diff lock side of the diff. The bearing is fine now, I have no idea why it stuck. But because the bearing seized, it acted like a bushing with the diff output rubbing inside the bearing. If I put the bearing back on the output shaft, it still acts like a bushing, because the output shaft got worn. The bearing is smooth, but it just won't spin... Any ideas on how to fix with out buying a new shaft for $10? I thought about lightly painting them to make the shaft "bigger" but I don't know if that will work. Thanks!
Please don't bump. We'll get to you, probably sooner rather than later.
