shims ( pinion )

I have to replace my ring & pinion. Can I reuse my old shims in the axle or do I have to buy new ones?

Thanks for the info.

Re: shims ( pinion )

The ones that are in there can be reused, JUST AS LONG AS THEY ARE THE THICKNESS YOU NEED FOR THE NEW R&P. To do a proper installation you will need a selection of shims to be able to set it up properly. The chances are against you using the same shims when you replace parts.

Re: shims ( pinion )

Make sure when you install your new gears you use grease paint to paint the gears and make sure you get a good mesh pattern. Probably the best way to do this is get a book on axles. Thenyou can see pictures of a good mesh pattern. You will however need a new crush collor for the pinion gear because once they crush they cant be reused. hope this helps you out.
