On the back subject we were going roughly 60-65 when I crashed. Back is all good now thanks for asking!!oof dude, breaking your brack on a g-out is up there on my nightmare scenarios list.
were you haulin the mail and flew off the one side?
Hope you're recovered from that.
I wanted to ask about this comment from early in the thread. Schreiner is on my list of rear end manufactureres to choose for my build, but this is the first negative comment i've seen. Do you have strong opinions about them? any thoughts on why the seals were bad?
As far as schreiner rear ends. My set up was the 2” snout with 31 spline gun drilled axles. The housing was not the fabbed housing but the 9” center section retubed by schreiner I think they have since upgrade those housing to a more fabricated stock style 9” center section (see the Bodj S-10) for example.With My housing I was always chasing cracks and leaks like every trip.
My rear end worked great when I had 35’s as soon as I went up to 37’s is when my hub issues started. The spindle nut lock ring is very chinsy the tab that locks into the cut out on the snout would constantly break and cause the spindle not to back out and ruin your weekend. I double stacked the rings on top of each other and never had one break again. Issue 2 the driver side snout was not reverse thread so the wheel rotation was trying to loosen it rather then tighten. Driver side broke the lock rings every time. Issue 3 (which it solvable with a lathe) is there are no crush sleeves on the hubs so the recommended torque was only like 32-flb’s unlink my Jamars that are hit the hub nut tool with a sledge hammer tight. 1 other weird problem that I found was the breather hole was to small and the housing would build enough pressure to cause the hubs seal to leak. I welded a -8 fitting on for a breather and the leaking stopped.
For the price tho you can’t really beat it. I’d recommend the bigger 3.5” fabbed housing and 35-40 spline set up if you plan on running anything over 35” tires.
