Anyone have pic of spider diff & sway bars?

I removed my diff 2 weeks ago and i'm installing a new one today... Trying to remember exactly how everything goes...

Done a few searches and got some shots of the pumpkin but i need one of the suspension and sway bars etc...

Thanks

Cool I need a rear shot too, I think my handbrake cable is misrouted - hangs really low and is rubbing the swaybar link.

Is a car really stable with the jackstands that high?

Sorry, I work in the dirt (no garage or driveway), and I'm still unsure of using jackstands to work under my car - I have them and put them under there when I'm under there, but the thought of the car falling off the stands still scares me to death.

Sounds like me... The jack is there, the jackstands, and I still throw the spare under the closest thing to the gound just in case. I just don't want to wear an alfa as a mask - hehehehe.

Concrete blocks can crumble under pressure or break when sudden weight is applied. I cut up some 8 X 8 lumber by about 18" and stack them as insurance. Paranoid...maybe. Safe...yes!

Scrap the concrete block Idea... That's why I'm paranoid. Almost had a pontiac sunbird land on me 'cause the conrete block cracked and started to crumble under the pressure. went slow enough for me to get out from under the car - luckily. Seemed really fast though.

Thanks for the help... The diff is in... I had trashed spider gear in my old 4.10 so i got this used 4.56 from Nasko's in Portland... Almost everything is all hooked up including new e-brake shoes...

ran out of daylight so tomorrow i'll connect the rotors and calipers, add fluid, and bleed them...

Then... cross my fingers.

Yeah

My only worry is that it might not be an LSD, it looks different from my old one... My car is an 82 and i think he said this came from a 74 or 76... It doesn't have the fore/aft splines under the diff, although it does have somewhat of a protrusion under the driveline connector... not sure... Guess i'll have to wait for a wet day and light up the tires & see if i have one or two tires spinning.

That would really suck.

Not that bad though if it were a regular diff.... How many times are you lighting the tires to show off? And drag racing really isn't Alfa territory IMHO. So what are ya trying to prove... and to whom?.....If your just out trying to light the tires?

I know you're kidding from the smiley at the end. Anyway, this seemes like a good place to mention the glum fellow who lived in a house I moved into.

He was supposed to have left two weeks before on a road trip to Alaska, with his girlfriend and another couple, their best friends, he said. But the other guy was working on his car the day before the trip when the cinder blocks let go, the car came down, and killed him.

I agree with you guys, and I give the car a bit of a push to see that it's stable, before I go underneath.
