Everything done waiting to mount the tires. After I had the LX sitting back on the floor, I torqued everything down to FSM specs. I even took the time to scrap/clean what seemed like 10 pounds of dirt/sand/grease off the diff and frame. Man what a mess, but looks much better now. Took for a quick spin and drives much better. No odd sways or noises.

One more video, this time, I mounted the camera and the video was much improved. Also, I purchased some decent clamps to hold the arbors down.
I can tell you're not in the rust belt!

That was a very quiet operation. Mine were more like a shotgun going off and each time it popped, I'd have to chase down and find all my blocks and supports so I could continue. I frequently came up to the limit of the 20 ton press, then I'd have to tap the outside of the arm with a hammer to get it to release.
