I had Proffitt do mine while they swapped the outers to the Diamond. I was dreading this myself.
I seriously doubt an individual would go through making or buying all the tools to do it. It's a major pain in the ass. Worst design ever in my opinion. And the replacement parts are not cheap. The semi float cruiser axles or even full float have a better design. I cringe for the customer when they bring them in with this issue. God what a horrible design.
Dan where were you this weekend. It was a perfect Broverlander event. Right up your alley.
