Hey guys i just need some input on if what i did was safe. My output shaft bearings in my front diff went out this week, so i removed my diff, front driveshaft and dissassembled my CV axles so that i could use the splines and threads (stub shaft essentially) to stick through the hub and hold the bearings together. Its only gonna be like this for a few days because im waiting on the new bearings and seals to arrive then me and my old boss are gonna rebuild the diff and put everything back together. This shouldnt bother my frame any should it? thanks guys

Sounds like a plan ( that should work ok )

I think you will be ok,I know of a cummins conversion truck that couldnt afford the IFS lift kit,and ran without ft diff for quite a while before installing one(cummins oil pan was in way of ft diff)
