    Misc CVPI upgrades

    Hello everyone. My brother has joined the panther family with a 2004 CVPI. He's interested in doing a few of the basic upgrades and figured we'd check here first. Have a few items to start. If you have something that's probably a good idea, pm me. Thank you.

    • Metco Rear control arms
    • Metco Watts link
    • Underdrive pulleys
    • Adtr Rear sway bar
    . Big 3 kit
    . Badgeless grille(CV, black)
    . Push Bar. Pending location, shipping etc.
    . Drivers and passenger front switch panels
    . Trunk organizer, preferably local.

    Soooooooo, we were going to put the new bearings and seals in the rear axle today. Got the old bearings out and the right side of the axle housing is damaged from previous bearing failure. Someone slammed it together and sent it down the road.
    Looking for a housing or complete assembly preferably in the northeast somewhere.

    Check with that junkyard across from the Washington State Trooper bear den on 57. They usually have a couple X cruisers 4 sale maybe they have a couple wreaked ones out back. Worth a phone call.

    Isn't there a repair kit that moves the location of the bearing in the housing to get away from the damaged area? Check Rock Auto....

    Yes, Mr. Man, there's almost always one or two out front there. Figured we'd support the panther community first. It's an extra vehicle for now so time isn't really an issue.
    I thought about welding and machining it, but don't really want to. Needs control arms too so it's not much more to just swap the housing out.
