No, I guess you could say this is an upgrade to the upgrade. It's been twelve years since I busted my knuckle at Truckhaven and documented the stud upgrade. Well, today while in the process of adding disc brakes to the front axle I loosened those nuts. Some of the bolts ('cause we all know they're not really studs) are spinning. The lock-tite bond has broken. So sure there are ways to finesse a blind headed bolt to prevent turning till the clamping force improves the process. But I wanted to use prevailing torque nuts and that just ain't going to happen. Besides after my attempt with the new disc brake brackets in place access is very limited. And if I'm struggling and cussing while in my own garage I can imagine what a nightmare some trail repair could become. Stand down, these knuckles are coming off. So even though the total brake upgrade was really making some progress it's on hold while I try to solve this. First thought was to remove the knuckle and just tack weld the heads. That's for Bubba, not me. I may consider tack welding pairs of heads together with some 3/16" steel rod bend into a crescent, if there is clearance. We'll see. Stay tuned.
