I am putting in a XJ Dana-44 Limited Slip TruPosi 3.73 into my already Dana-44 3.73 (spyder gears) TJ and was just wondering if anyone knew if there was anything extra required or if that didn't work.
Any help appreciated
You are simply replacing your open differential with a track-loc right?
You'll be doing a Full gear set up is all
Measure current gear back lash, and take a reference pattern.
Use your gears,start with the original (to your current tj axle) carrier shims with new bearings, measure backlash and take a pattern. If it matches the original numbers and pattern, tie it up and drive. If not you'll be doing a gear set up.
be sure you use new ring gear bolts and follow the spicer set up manual.
Never mix n match a different ring gear and pinon.
'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
The guy said TruPosi but as you stated and on my own investigation of it I'd assume there is nothing special about it. I was confused at first cause I just started learning about rear ends when mine blew.
