If I only have to swap out a broken carrier do I have to mess with the pinon gear settings?
Thanks

You'll want to reuse the ring gear if its not damaged. And yes you'll have to set backlash.
What happened?

If that is the carrier from a housing that HAD good gears, then you likely have caused damage to the gears also. Might not have broken teeth off or such, but the gouging of a tooth or two will significantly change things and likely fail prematurely and or make noise once the carrier and bearings alone are replaced, then fail.

But to answer your question.
If just removing carrier and re-installing another, with same ring gear, no pinion adjustment is needed.

It's from the front axle of a trailer queen cj so the gears look fine. Was only engaged for low range trails when I heard the popping noises. Trying to avoid the costly shop expense associated with gear installs.
Thanks

No pinion depth changes needed, however backlash will have to be set for the new carrier. Check your teeth on both the ring and pinion, if there is any burrs or bad places you can lightly file them down smooth. Being a front axle in a cj it will be fine. Im sure you have lock out hubs to unlock so high speeds should not be seen.
