    28 spline is the pinion yoke (you are correct, axles have to be 35 spline - getting those from currie who I'm using to shorten the the left side of the rear end seeing they have the jig to do it instead of us making one.)

        No real work has happened lately, but had to post some pics of my "not so sexy" wheels as we moved the car back to the shop to get back at it...

          Very cool that you're sticking with the Dynaflow. You don't see many of those today (Hey, I can read.....).

                      Well the latest progress took a little longer than anticipated.

                      Took the rear end into Currie and we discovered that the 9" had previously exploded and had weakened the internal seams and felt it best to scrap the housing for a new one so there would be no bending/flexing.

                      The guys over there did some great work, new 35 spline axles, rewelded my 4-link & bag brackets and mounted my wildwood setup.

                        Looks great. They are known for doing it right. Wish I could weld like that.

                                I'm zeroing in on finishing my FJ40, so the Buick is going to get love - but I suspect that I won't finish this round, merely move it forward.... with that said, watching your progress is encouraging to me as well.
