  3. Hi there I would pull each plug out check it for color and do a compression check. That will give you an idea of what's really wrong. The colour of plugs will show you which cylinder has leaked coolant in it. Compression test will let you know if valves are working. Put a little oil in cylinder and it will let you know if the rings are broken. Scary stuff been there myself. Hope this helps.
  4. Hi guys looking at picture certain things come to mind. Is that a 86 axle on a 82. If it is the springs could have sagged over the years. May need a replacement. My 83 now has the 86 axle in and had to get the springs re arced. It sat so low I thought it was going too bottom out. Is there side skirts?

  8. Hi guys and girls. Expect to pay 1200 for axle get with rims and leaf springs. Might be a better set. Sway bar as well. Its different for the 6 bolt. This i know. The guys had to MacGyver my 5 bolt sway bar to the 6 bolt axle. They moved perch pads shock mounts etc. Brakes will need to be replaced 1100 if everything has to be replaced.drums brake pistions, shoes and springs Find a 4x4 repair shop. Lots in your area. They love doing axle swaps. Mine cost 1100 seems thats the going price. Great people here as I just had mine done last month. Note be careful on the width of the axle.
