What does it take to swap over to the Chevy wheel cylinders and 3” pads ? Pretty sure it’s all stock back there.

The wheel cyls just bolt in and you should already have the 3" pads. All the Dana 70's i've had were the 3".

Did they offer 3” shoes with a tow package or something? I could totally see the mind set of. Set it up for 3 “ but make them pay extra for it at some board meeting.

Could be right there. I noticed a huge improvement going to 3” but even more with the 3.5” shoes in my second gen axle that’s in there now. It also has Chevy 1 Ton cylinders.

That sounds like you have all the stopping power. I had been enjoying the new found stopping power of properly working brakes. I had that brake booster leaking and getting slowly worse the whole time I have owned the truck. Just thought it was how they were supposed to feel. Once they got so bad they didn’t work I figured it out. Haha Ordered up those wheel cylinders and 3” shoes. Now if I can just get off work before they close so I can pick them up.

Added a set of Bilstein 5100 shocks to the w250 today. No test drive yet but the old shocks were in horrible shape, incredibly rusted and provided very little dampening. Will be sure to report back after I’ve got a few miles on it.

Bought me another one yesterday. Not too bad for $1K. Pretty rough, something's going on with the front axle. Runs great though! Have big plans for it...

Got a bunch of stuff done on the truck last night.

I was going to rebuild the steering coupler since it was getting bad and I had over 45* movement in the steering wheel before it would affect the tires, but I was out looking at the parts truck and it had a steering shaft with a large U-joint so decided to clean it up and use that one instead. I also installed the new drag link.



Also since it's been 5 years and over 100K km's I wanted to change my tranny fluid and filter. I run one of those string filters that sit inside a housing on the RH PTO location....works very well.





A comment by Oliver stuck in my head that he runs the same fluid in the NV4500 and NP205...which makes some sense to me. So decide to also drain my transfer case and move the older Castrol Syntorque from the tranny into the TC.

Those U-joint shaft upgrades are the only way to go with 1st Gen steering coupler repair. It's the difference between doing it for the last time or doing it again after another 50k or whatever.
