  • adding wheel weights without weakening driveline

    ok, so i have tried all sorts of options for adding weight to the front axle of my clod. tried bb's, tried stick on weights, tried lead shot. all of which seemed to limit my power significantly and weaken my outer axle shafts. so i came up with his way to add some weight and not comprimise power or strength.

    as long as you are still running stock outer knuckles this will work for you too.

    Firts i got some heavy wall d.o.m. tubing i had lying around my garage which i used for my 1:1 tie rod.

    It measures 1 1/4" od and 5/8" id.
    i then cut it to 5/8" length



    Took a dremel to the inside of the stock outer knuckle to take off the 3 little molded nubs and make a flat surface.



    stuck the tubing in the outer knuckle and drilled a hole in the top and bottom.





    this pic shows the hole going into the d.o.m. tubing. its slightly smaller than the set screw i will use to anchor them in.



    screw the set screw through the knuckle and into the tube.



    and put your wheel back on!

    that easy, and no one will even know they are in there!!

            I know it will, as TXT and Clod share the same outter knuckle. Not so sure how they will work on the front AL knuckles but I am sure I can make it work some how
