Im screwed now that i found out i need larger gears in my axles. I intend to run 31" and maybe 32" tires. What gear size should i get how much are they gonna cost where can i get them and is the installation hard?
<font color=blue> What size gears do you have now? Check out these links below http://S10-4X4.COM/RPO/check your RPO codes in to see what size gears you have (GU6=3.42 gears) http://S10-4X4.COM/Gears/check out this tire and gear ratio chart
You don't need to do the tire rotate, if you go to your glovebox and look in the bottom their might be a sticker of a bunch of codes those are your rpo codes. They will tell you if you use them with the def's from s10-4x4.com Good Luck. Victor
<font face="Comic Sans MS">Check the drainplug on the rear differential to see if you can get that out... If you can, then undo the 10 bolts that hold the cover on after procuring some new differential gear lube and some RTV (for a gasket) from the parts store. You can read the numbers on the ring gear in this form 41:10 for example is 4.10 gears... Divide the first number by the second number. Or you could count the teeth on the gears although it's hard to count the pinion ones... More accurate method than the rotating thing. Plus if you haven't changed the fluid lately it's a good idea to do anyhow... Just a thought...</font>
