Sep 17 - S10 Blazer stuff fits!
So I slid one of the blazer axles on to check the spline alignment and it looks good. When I grip the inside bit (on the axle) and twist it, with it in the hub, there is a very slight bit of play in it. I'm hoping that's normal, I'll read up on it. Or if I put some anti seize on it it'll take out that little bit of movement it has. I'll ask others on another forum I'm on to see what they have to say about it.
I tried to test the length of the drivers side but I can't get it in there with the blazer axle. Not enough room to get past the transmission. I'll pull those big pieces off before I try again on that one.
Oh yeah, and the axle end pokes out too far for the wheels' center cap. I suspect I can cut it down and bevel the edge again. The other picture still has the shipping plastic bag over the axle so it doesn't get all nasty while I'm poking around. I'm sure it won't be long and those will be out of the bag and separated so I can join them back together with the G6 axle parts.
I'm having issues getting my axles apart. Any suggestions? This is the wheel end of the deal. The tripot was easy.
