Yeah looks like the snap ring did break and the nuts backed off. I managed to find the parts on Denny's driveshaft. Reasonable prices too. Haven't tore into passenger side yet but the driver side rotor appears to be in decent shape.

M1009 manual has to be one of the best I've seen. Thanks bud!
You're welcome.

The military knows how to do it right. Puts the Haynes/Chiltons to shame.

Yeah they do. Went to start putting stuff together yesterday but realized boogered up the threads were on the spindle. I have a thread file but man those were flattened real bad so I was worried about there not being enough meat to hold those nuts on so I went and found me a used one on eBay for 35 bucks. Not too bad I guess.

Also, make sure to check the bearing races inside the hub. If your bearings are toast, they can cause the races to spin. If the race is loose, don't try using JB weld to hold it in place. It won't work, I know this from experience. Replace the hub
