Breaking Sparks’ CodePosted: March 9, 2019
I’ve probably mentioned it before but the City of Sparks has a code in place that makes it illegal to work on your own car on your own property.
You can change fluids and brake components but not swap carburetors, engines or axles.
Well, I needed to break the rules…
You see, I locked up the rear diff three months ago and the Jeep’s been parked in front of my house that whole time. My neighbors love me so it didn’t get ticketed.
Rather than just doing the diff work, I decided to swap springs and axle all together.
In less than three hours, I had the old axle/spring combo out and the in unit installed. Okay, it doesn’t have brakes and the spring perches are not welded to the axles. But everything was tight enough for me to back it in to the driveway.
