    IMO you don't need the roll pins. Just the socket properly welded on and I use red loctite

    Took my new retainer plates with sockets in to welder to have them made up while im gone on vacation this next week. That should take care of axle nut issue. Also have new trailing arm bushing and wheel bearing being pressed into knuckle on the damaged side. Hopefully get it all together when I come back home.

    If you have to change an axle while out on the trail you'll need a punch to get the roll pin out, a torch to melt the red locktite, and the proper socket with a long handle and cheater bar.

    If you do only the retainer plate all you need is the socket wrench and a decent breaker bar. Just sayin...

    When you change the axle in the comfort of your garage make sure to keep track of ALL the tools you use -- then be sure they're duplicated in your trail bag. Ha!!! If you do all this Grasshopper, then the stars will align and you'll probably never break an axle again.

    /\ /\ /\ /\ I hear ya loud and clear Rockhopper.......... It was such a bear getting it out of the woods not to mention expensive to fix....... that I want to do everything I can to ensure it does not happen again.......lol. Perhaps skip the red loctite and just rely on the plates. But I will have extra axles with me as well. I have not ordered it yet but a new drive coupler will be in my kit as well for my next big trip in June.
