I'm not really in a rush to get it fixed so I can drive it. I bike to work and with summer upon me I'm diggin the exercise. I'd rather not drive a lil longer and get an 8.8 instead of fixing my D35 as this is the second time I've needed spider gears and pretty sure it was all due to a leaking axle seal on driver side. With everything adding up and checking ECGS, I think a 8.8 would be worth the moeny they charge. As far as gearing goes, I'll be doing most of the driving on streets and freeways as it's my daily driver. Would I want to go 4.88 as mentioned previously or what would be best for daily driving? It is a 2.5L with 33x12.5s and current 4.10 gearing. Cheers to all helpful feedback so far!
