curious if there's any impact damage seen? probably nothing that can be told since it was down there banging around for a bit. Just seems strange you're breaking them.

ya, that side had a fresh install at moab after it was broken by the mint.  Only change we made was a stiffer bar installed

I have a good source for Heims now. Let me know before you buy any and I will see what we can do.

pulled into shop for first time after hammers


driver side front spindle broken, replaced spindle and new spindle bearing
driver side caliper bolts bent and replaced
front gear set inspected OK and diff oil changed
rear drive shaft splines stripped from yoke in middle of slip travel, its impressive!
Passenger side front RCV shaft replaced with new 300M, and new bell/rebuild kit
loose link jam nut found
main battery DOA

needs a bolt check, fluids check, primary rear shaft rebuilt, battery swap for AOAA and should be good.
