axle re gear help?
 
Hello I am just throwing a feeler out there and I was hoping to see if anyone on here knows how to Regear a dana 30 and ford 8.8 from 3.73 to 4.88. I cant really afford it from a shop and also want to learn how to do it! I am willing to pay you for your time and troubles! So anyone let me know

I can help on here a bit, nothing serious. I haven't regeared those two specifically, I did my 44 and 9. It's a pretty serious task, but it's not too rough. You got all the tools?

Oh, dang, I guess online I'm not much help at all. There's quite a few tools you really need. Cost a few hundred at harbor fright, quite a bit more for the real deal...you can, if you like, gut the axle, have a shop pull your bearings and races, grind those down to loose fit, space them, and have the shop press them again...and hope you measured right the first time! But yeah, hopefully someone local with a press can help you out.

Have you opened up the axle yet?

wow, good luck on knocking out both axles in one go.
that would make me nervous, I'd rather be able to have something go wrong. I mean, if he knows what he's doing it is not a long job, but yeah, best of luck.

He says he knows what he is doing so hopefully it won't blow up

check out the following, its the best writeup I've come across

http://www.pirate4x4.com/articles/te...sta/Gear_Setup

I think one key to all this is to make/buy some setup bearings that can be easily slipped on/off.

how did the regear go? i read that he said he would do both for you in one day. i just did mine again and have done some in the past and it still took me 16 hours. i did do ball joints as well and had a hard time with one seal.
