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.

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.
