Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)



DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

    GM torque Tube help

    Post  Boilermaker on Thu Sep 30, 2010 11:42 pm

    Does anyone have any experience changing universal joints in the older GM torque tube vehicles?
    The last car to have this was the 1960 Buick and I have.. of course... a 1960 Buick with a squeeky universal. Any advice or guidance would be appreciated.

    Andrew,

    Thanks for the link. I have had difficulty finding info on these differentials. Could it be that the last one used is 50 years old now? My car has the squeak of death (universal) and I have tried greasing the zerk fitting with no luck. At least I now know that I will have to drop the diff to gain access to the propshaft. I have absolutely no leaks now so I hate to tear into it but it needs to be replaced. I'll pencil it in as another winter job; in between snowmobile rides.
