Would we have to install them upside down being that they're Aussie axles.

Melody,
It means a lot of things. Mostly to drag something slowly and under great duress. When talking of a person, the urban dictionary is the most current place to get the meaning.

shipping

Actually shipping from down under is about four times what it would be to ship across the us from lets say ny to la. Any leads on galvanized sets heree in the us? And no you dont have to install them upside down you have to put the rear axle in front of the front axle.

Axis has already told me that they are able to hot dip galvanize virtually all of the steel parts in a Torsion axle. I have requested pricing.

No. I'm not ready to put them in yet. I still have to put the wheel wells, center section of the floor, insulate and new belly pan, then I'll put the axles up there.

I thought you'd be used to being an army of one. I actually thought that you'd be ready at the pace you're already moving at. You have accomplished a lot in a short period of time.

Top,
How long did it take your axles to come in after you ordered them? I will be ready to do mine in maybe 2 or 3 months.
