Also, if you plan on wheeling it S3 (with the pressed in larger studs and lugnuts) are a good upgrade.

thanks, do i just need to buy the studs and lugs?

The quickest check is that S2 hubs use a 15/16 lugnut, the S3 use 1-11/16 (27mm) same as a coiler.

Be advised there is a bigger lugnut for the smaller stud, but they are awfully expensive and arent often fount in nature.

i will look into that tomorrow thanks! if i am not mistaken the complete axle that had the warn locking hubs on it. is a series III front axle. i'll look into it.

I had the Rocky Mountain parabolics on my 109 Station Wagon. Got the 4 leafers but they didn't articulate well at all with out a significant load in the back. Pulled one leaf out and it worked much better for me, even with a load.

A friend of mine has the 3 leaf on his 65 109 SW with safari top and it looks like it has a load of lead in the back! He is quit dissapointed in them and is switching to the 4 leaf.

The front seam pretty good and sit about a 1/2 to 1" higher than stock and about 2" higher than the rear.

These are the latter packs not the ones with the 3rd leaf that acts like a overload.


Nice project!

Ed

From what I have read from around the other forums. There seems to have been a bad run of the steel that is used to make leaf springs for some of the companies that sell leaf springs. I think that this has been taken care of. Anyone else know anything about this?

another little update. drained and dropped the fuel Tank to find tons of crap in it. but really not rust at all. cleaned it all out. also tried fitting the warn locking hubs, to find out the outter flange on the warns need to be trimmed down around 10 thousandths or so. and i got a little bored today so i went ahead and threw the top and windshield on quickly. i can't wait til this thing really starts moving forward! theres a picture of my best friend there too!

I trimmed the axle ends, not the hubs, when I fitted them to the rear of my series.

Was this for towing purposes? Or is there other advantages to manual hubs on the back?

So I could flat tow it without pulling a driveshaft. Stole the idea from Tom Bache.

x2 on grinding down the end of the axle to fit the warn hub. Pretty common to have to do this. Your rig looks like it came with lots of nice goodies. Kodiak, hand throttle, adjustable seat bottoms, stylin' seats, warn hubs. Score! Do you have the corner glass for the truck cab too?
