August 8, 2008If you''ve never done one then it would be a real pain in the ass for you. It requires a few special tools and experience with them to set them up properly. Do you know anyone that''s done it that can help you?
August 9, 2008It ain''t that bad....
Lots of beer and the right tools.. I spare truck to run back and forth works well too..
August 9, 200814 bolt ff''s are probably one of the easiest axles to setup, so that is one thing going for you. Installing the gears is very easy, its getting the correct backlash and pinion depth that is the more difficult part.
August 9, 2008Good reference..
August 10, 2008Yeah read up a little bit, everything is pretty straight forward, like stated above the pinion/ring gear are the hardest part to set up if you have never done it.
Why only going from 3.73s to 4.10s, I don`t think you`ll notice much of a difference.....
