Ya I might as well jump right to the proper gear instead of messing with 4.56' s

So the regear has began but is far from done. We started with the front knowing it would be the most difficult. Everything got setup up without much trouble minus some issues with the crush sleeve. After some testing and refitting of the pinion shaft we got the right depth and had the front locked in. Now on to the rear which first started off with what we thought was to much pinion depth because we could not move the ring gear if we tried. So we adjusted the pinion shim to .00 form .30 to have a good starting point. The second try gave us great results but the pinion need to come in more so we moved up to .10 on the shim. On the third try we had a great wear pattern but ran into another issue. The ring gear binds at a certain spot. It may be that the ring gear is warped or the carrier . I'm going to repress the bearings on the carrier and maybe drop down the shim on the pinion to .08. I'm hoping the ring and carrier are fine but we'll see.





We had the pinion in to much.

Pretty good wear pattern

The 8.8

After learning what I have its not that hard to be quite honest. I wouldn't recommend doing it the first time on your own, especially without the proper tools.

The ring gear is binding at a certain spot we're trying to figure out why, so I'm going to check my backlash and make sure the ring gear isn't warped. So tomorrow will involve so adjusting and hopefully the rear gearing should be done.
