Rear end

92 YJ has broken spider gears and a chipped tooth on the ring. Do I change out the ring and pinion, axle seals, barring and put in lockers at this point? Does anyone recommend putting Dana 44's in rather than keeping 35's? If I change the rears should I change the front? Looking to lift it any suggestions.

I'd first ask what your budget and tire size were?

I am running 31's and it is stock height. I am thinking about a 2.5" lift and maybe going one size up on my tires. As far as budget goes I can probable afford to redo the rear completely. I am sure that I should redo the front end the same way right?

For an inexpensive repair I would clean out the rear with lots on brake clean and install junk yard spiders while figuring out the replacement. Sadly there is no direct bolt in rear. A good alternate is a Cherokee 8.25 but they dont come stock in your ratio and need pads and shock mounts added. 3.07 or 4.10.will be what you have. Ford 8.8 also needs the pads and shock brackets added. What ratio is yours?

If it were me, I'd probably swing for a Ford 8.8 rear. Would be really easy to setup on a YJ since you have leafs. You can find them with factory 4.10 gears with a limited slip. Might get lucky and find one with brakes already on it. Lots of aftermarket for a 8.8 if you wanted to add a legit locker. Only thing is you would have to change the front axle to 4.10 (or whatever ratio) to match the rear.

But if your tight on time and money, just throw it together with new seals/bearings/spiders and roll.
