Re: making a high pinion
[ QUOTE ]
Well i need the high pinion for the rear of my cj5, so wouldnt it make any high pinion axle want to pull apart? how does currie, dynatrac, etc, fix this problem with their hipinion rear axles?

They use reverse cut ring and pinion just like factory uses when they install high pinions in the front of Fords and Jeeps. Been doing it for years with no issues and mine works quite well.
But you don't want to flip over a rear end to make a high pinion because of lube issues. The internal housing shape has a lot to do with the way the lube is moved around. This is what I read on the Currie web site years ago, don't know how correct it was but it sounded good [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].
