I really enjoyed the ride height in that I didn't have to lift him at all to complete the job. I just shimmied on under and did my thing.
Woof, that was about 30 pounds ago for me. Maybe an XC is higher

:lol:

I am 15 pounds down From my peak thanks to improved diet , another 30 would be good

Finished up installing the used, low-mile angle gear and new collar in the S60R . Rear driveshaft is left uninstalled for now, until I can find time to service the rear haldex. Then I'll finish putting it together.

While it was out of commission, in addition the angle gear-related seals and AG fluid I also replaced with new the serp belt tensioner (INA) and serp belt (Conti), did a full transmission fluid flush (Idemitsu TLS), full coolant flush (Volvo coolant), oil cooler seals (V Reinz), oil change (M1 0w-40; it was due).

What I wish I had bought and also done at the same time: both small coolant hoses on the oil cooler, dust cover on the hub bearing.

Today I replaced Ben's windshield end cowl trim and picked up his new shoes.

Whichever blue, he's a handsome boy but I'm biased.

This morning I had his shoes installed.
