Opion needed on gears

I'm starting to gather parts for my axle upgrades and I am at the point of buying gears. I know some manufactures are beter than others. What is your take on Genuine Gear vs Precision gear vs Randy's Yukons? I'm looking for a set of 4.56's for my D-44.

Re: Opion needed on gears

I ordered mine from Drivetraindirect.com, I got 4.56's for my Dana 44s and they were fine. A hastle putting them in and settin gthem up, but the gears seem fine. I got original Dana gears, so I am pretty confident in them. I have also heard that getting other gears may be harder to set up, or may be louder than the Dana gears. I have heard both sides on this and don't have any first hand knowledge. Drivetrain Direct had good prices, they were cheaper than Randy's

Re: Opion needed on gears

I have used both Superior and Genuine gears...the good thing about Genuine is the lifetime warranty...which for me was a good thing....I ruined the first set when I installed them wrong...Pinion depth is a lot more important than the instructions say........

DrivetrainDirect is a good source (I used them too). But if you going to do the gears yourself...then go with Genuine...that way you can get a free replacement set after you do the first one wrong.

Re: Opion needed on gears

Genuine is CRAP! and so are the Yukons. If you got Dana axles then USE DANA GEARS, if you don't use Dana axles then look for some US Gear, Precision, or even Richmond. I'll never put anything else in any of my rigs. When I regear the tons I'm going to get Dana/Spicer front and US Gear for the 14bolt.
