Finally got around to sticking the oil cooler in while I was doing this years oil change. It's a snug fit, but it works.

New torque rods are installed.



I lopped the ends off a pair of stock rods, drilled the holes a tiny bit bigger with a 13/16" bit, then rammed a 7/8-14 tap down 'em.



I used a pair of Rock Krawler RK03524 joints. These are nearly a perfect fit. I had to grind 1mm off the end bit before they would slide nicely into the ears on the axle. They have zerk fittings too. Then I pulled my old torque rods off and transferred the poly bushings over.



I basically guessed on the length setting, something like 5-10mm longer than the stock rods. I tried using my phone to measure the trans and pinion angles but I got different numbers every time. It still has a little bit of a grumble on takeoff, so I think it needs adjusting, but man it's improved. It does transfer more of the weird noises my rear end makes into the car, but that's what the radio's fer.

How is your oil drain pipe secured to the block? Does it look like you have a metal tube that's going into the hole with a lot of silicone? Just curious if you tapped it or something it's hard to see in the picture.

OH, the pan is what the wagon came with. It's some steel pipe with npt thread on the end that was booger welded into the pan by whoever did the +t on it. It was leaking so I peeled off the orange RTV that was on it, then I ground off what appeared to be Bondo around the weld, then gooped it with JB weld. Not sure if it worked. Before pic:



It's also smashed in at the front from where it hit the subframe.

Think this thread is what I needed to see to get motivated to start thinking about actually doing stuff to my car again. Lovely work.

Maybe the center bearing support is blowed up?
