Front of diff324 views9 inch under the van. This is not the final install angle, the pinion is far too low. Things to note here are the placement of the brake lines, I used a stock "T" but replaced teh steel lines. There's no compatibility issues between the wheel cylinders and the Astro's lines. I did however have to make the hole larger for the T to mount to one of the studs on the housing.

305 viewsI was feeling good and figured in another 2 min I'd have the 2nd (top) bolt out, sadly I was mistaken, the last thing I wanted to hear was SNAP! and yet,that is exactly the last thing I heard.
I decided to call it a day,the snow was piling up and I'd had enough, I left the van at work and came back 2 days later to show it who was boss,the van had other ideas!
