crush sleeve eliminator?

Anybody know if they make these for the d30/35? If not will any of the other axle sized ones fit(8.25, 8.8, etc)? I'm doing a gear swap later this week and was hoping to not have to deal with crush sleeves.

thanks

I don't ever remember seeing one for the 30/35. An 8.8 etc will be much too large in diameter and probably not the correct depth either. Not to say there isn't one, give National Drivetrain or Randy's Ring and pinion a call...usually they can answer a question like that pretty quick.

Last time I check there was not. You can get some tubing and have machined down to work.

Take some already crushed sleeves and use them as a reference. Knock 20 thou off the crushed length and go from there.

For shims you can use YJ D30 pinion shims. Those ones didnt use crush sleeve.

Thinner. Same as the crush sleeve, which is right around 60 wall.

Why get rid of the crush sleeve? To me that was one of the easiest parts of the regear. I found it much easier than using shims as it is a one size fits all part that you tighten until the numbers are right. I'm not questioning you as much, just wondering what the benefit is.

RLD, it seems as though its easier to get the pinion shimed more accurately with the solid spacer. If the crush sleeve is over tightened you need a new one, it takes ALOT of torque to crush the sleeve, not only that but its easier to change the pinion seal if need be. I know you can change the seal with the crush sleeve, but your SUPPOSE to use a new sleeve(with requires you to remove the carrier). eventhough people have found a way around it. there could be more pros and cons, but thats all I could think of. If anyone else has any pros or cons, I'm all ears.

Thanks

Looked for it all over ebay and google. couldn't find it. Ended up ordering from some local machine shop guy for $60.
And got them shims from some random Ebay guy.

Works fine!

If you ever have to replace your pinion seal or yoke you will be very thankful for a spacer. Simply remove nut, replace whatever, torque back to spec.

IMO the crush sleeve was the worse part of the regear. I even bought an eliminator kit for my 8.8 but on the final install I put the shims in wrong and messed them forcing me to use a crush sleeve. Over tightened the one that originally came in my install kit and spent a whole day trying to find another one locally.
