Dana 35 Gear Change

Iam getting ready to change my stock gearing out to 410's. Does anyone have a good guide of instructions to help do this? im very mechanic oriented and would just like to have a little more backup on doing this.

also my carrier bearings only have probably 55,000 miles on them. would you all go ahead and replace them?

thanks

LOL well that, I am not suppose to tell anyone. I have a buddy that works for Offroad Werks in Ventura. I have given him plenty of business and have sent all my buddies to him. I also gave him a bunch of spair parts that I was ging to sell. Ill PM you the price. but he said normall he does re-gears for about $400 an axle. A little high on the price

If you're very mechanically inclined, you should probably be able to do it provided you have access to all the required tools. Randy's Ring and Pinion web site used to have a good set of instructions. I think the most important thing is recognizing patterns and knowing how to adjust to correct. I taught myself and have not had to re- do any installations. No noisy gears and I've done 10 so far. The first couple took a lot of time but once I found out what to adjust to get a good pattern, the rest was easy. Patience is a must have. Buy good gears. I highly recommend Yukon. Their gears pattern very well and their install kits are excellent. A lousy gear set that doesn't pattern well just makes the job more confusing for the beginner.
