    Before I left the shop yesterday I started encoding the version for Google drive. It is uploaded to the shared folder now: DF Goblin Build Guide on Google Drive

    Anyone have any advice for getting the wheel hubs into the uprights? I can't seem to fit them with the ABS plug receiver on the back side and I destroyed it to the point it wont even turn anymore when I tried to get it to sit flush. Thanks!

    I might have helped to heat the spindle in the oven to 200-250 and freeze the hubs overnight in the freezer. Might have dropped right in. Also clean the heck out of the corrosion on the inside. Mine was corroded and pitted so bad.

    I had to grind down the plastic ABS connector, once I did that had no problem fitting in. This is with 2008 SS hubs

    I removed the ABS plug on mine and replaced with trailer caps. Had to grind down the lip a little to fit, see my build log page 2 post 34

    Thanks all! I'll give grinding them down a try!

    Did you have to grind the metal underneath the plastic at all, or just the connector for the ABS?
