Gear swap

I found this in the stickies:
Rear Axles
Dana 35 non c-clip - 27 spline, 1.18" diameter shafts, 7.58" ring gear, 2.62" axle tube - used '87-'89
Dana 35 c-clip - 27 spline, 1.18" diameter shafts, 7.58" ring gear, 2.62" axle tube - used '90-'95

I found a great deal on a carrier and ring and pinion from a 1989 YJ with 4.10 gears.
If I read the above info correctly, this will not work in my 1992 YJ because of the C-Clip axles in my '92?

Regearing is expensive.. cheaper to find axles with the gearing you want and swap them in..

What are your plans, regearing / swapping a D35 is a waste , Research ford 8.8..

they will work, but do you have the knowledge to do the swap yourself? if yes then nothing wrong with spending a few extra bucks to end up with a rebuilt rear end. if no and you will be paying someone to do it just find another rear with the gears you want.

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

What you need to know/find out, is if the replacement non c-clip carrier will accept the c-clip style carrier side & possibly spider gears too.

Reason being - the c-clip style side gears are machined differently so that they accept the c-clips while the non c-clip side gears will not. IIRC, there could be size differences between the two types.

It *might* be a simple case of using the old side gears (and *maybe* the spider gears too) if the carrier allows.

One other factor you may need to consider is if the non c-clip carrier still has the carrier bearings pressed on it. If it does & you don't get the races with it - then you will be doing a mix-match of the bearing parts.

Plus, you *may* need to remove the old carrier bearings and press them on the other carrier. If not successful - new bearings will be needed. If the bearings are old or worn - you'll want new ones.

You're gunna need shims, gear marking compound, probably a new pinion gear crush sleeve, seal etc since the gears will need to be set-up not to mention the tools required.

I am going to do the swap myself, with the help of a friend who has the right tools and has done several. That should negate the labor charge. I have found several sources locally for the gears and carrier, coming in under $100 bucks.

I have researched the waggy d44s and the 8.8s and have decided to go D44 long term.

In light what you pointed out about the machining, I will stick with the carrier out of the 90' and up non abs so I stay on the safe side.
