Use the gears from old arb locker?

I have an ARB locker that I pulled from my dana 35, 4.56 gear. The ring and pinion are in top shape but the locker housing is cracked, from a po's poorly done install. The gears and pin in the locker look great. So, I had a "great" idea!!! Dont have much cash, so....get a new carrier, reuse the gears and pin from the locker, get a minor diff install kit, put it all in and live happily ever after. Any advice on if this is a good idea?

Assuming you are ok with just a working rear end and no locker, You need a new carrier and spider gears to replace the locker assembly. I'd get one from a junk yard, maybe www.daveysjeeps.com. Be sure to get the one for high number gear ratios, their were only two, crossing at 3.55 ratio I think. Once you have the new carrier in hand, yes, you can swap the ring gear to the new carrier, then you only have to set the backlash. Do Not touch the pinion, it's probably fine as is, just check the ring/pinion contact parch after you're done.
