Default One BIG breakage in one day

Ok im in a major bind as I was driving down to the parts store to get new pads and calipers for the wife's neon so it was already a pritty lame day but as i was driving there i felt my right front wheel wobbling so i decided to turn back and go home cause something told me too as i was making my way home my hub snapped off the knuckle for the DANA 44 but was still secured to the truck thanks to the axle shaft but in the process of getting my truck home so i could get it towed to my shop i drove it .8 kms and called a friend that owes me a free tow.

but this is where it gets better now i have to replace and rebuild the whole front axle (all seals and universals), shocks, springs, track bar bushings, stab bar bushings and end links...


... but this is what i dont get at all my water pump bearing popped the same time and it also now sounds like it is missing ... what do i do ... pull the 170,000km 318 and rebuild it to a 390 cause if i have to rebuild its being stroked ....

any help and tips/advise is very much appreciated

why not build it it should be ez if you have a shop and can live without the truck. what the hell make it a mighty mouse id do my 318 if i had the time and $$$$$$. is the truck an auto or manual? cause the manual in mine really makes me want to do mine. that and a buddy of mine has a 2012 5.0 stick that he let me drive

I am going to rebuild it from bumper to bumper ... its got a 46RE trans ( gonna trick that out w/viper style torque converter & performance valve body) and a New Process 205HD t-case both brand new (10,000km's on rebuild) ...

just have to save up for the motor tho stroker's cost extra money then a normal rebuild also the DANA 44 needs a rebuild too anyone know how to get that seal properly seated by the axle acctuator without the seal tool
