It is actually about 1/2" to the street side off center behind the rear tire. I think I know what it is though. Just means more work!!

Its pretty straight forward. Just make sure not to drill the holes too big or the threads wont tap snug. I actually snapped a couple bolts because they were too tight. You will love them!!

I got one on last night. They are amazing! 3 more to go today. I think I will back the bolts out today that I put on last night and use some locktight just as a little extra grab.

Matt,

Did you buy yours at Inland also? I'm considering getting some too.

I did get them there. I think it's the best price. Shipping was 50.00ish.

I'm really impressed with them. One of the best things I've gotten so far.

Here are a couple more shots of my subfloor with the elevator bolts covered and subfloor insulation.

Got a bit more insulation done yesterday, mind numbing tedious labor. Hope to have the rest of it done today along with bolting down the U channel. Oh and I got my new tires in anticipation of getting my axles in a week!! Here are a couple pics complete with obligatory beer shot.

Got my axles today, finally! Took over two month but I finally got em. Removed the old axles, pretty hard core. I must have used every cutting tool I own. The bolts were pretty much frozen so I just cut em! I also cleaned up corrosion coated primed and painted the "c" channel. Lots of busy work my garage is filling up with parts just need a little more time to put the beast together!

Nice axles. You went with the super HD discs I see. Nice paint work on the C/U/J channel. It'll last about another 50 years or so.
