Start laughing now!

Swapped out the 3.15 lsd for the 3.91 today. Father/son project as he is home on Thanksgiving break. So I hand him the breaker bar and the e torx for the axle bolts and sure enough he rounds off the first one. He did not have it on square. I'm pissed but hey, that's what learning is all about. So we take off all the rest of the bolts drop the sway bar and the muffler and then try to figure out how to get the bolt out. Finally cut the head off. Drop the diff and bolt in the other one. I then pick up my rack of etorx and realize I gave him the wrong socket. I gave him 14 instead of 12! So I explain to him that all of the time lost on this project today is due to my lack of planning and wait for it:


Who knew

Ordering all new bolts as preventative measure and penance.
