Re: where to buy gears

Check drivetrain direct or national drivetrain. http://www.drivetraindirect.com AND http://www.natldrivetrain.com/. National has good prices on their own brand of R&P. Probably taiwan made but cheap just the same.

Re: where to buy gears

Gears is not something you want to go cheap on. By the time you've invested both your time and money setting up your axles, you definately don't want them to fail while out having a good time wheelin'. Check Randy's. http://www.ring-pinion.com Good prices on top quality gear sets. The guys there are knowledgeable and easy to deal with. The kind of people I would give my return business. It's hard to say that about many places these days. Just my .02

Re: where to buy gears

Drivetrain Direct has good Dana gears, install kits and good prices. They will match anyone's advertised price. I would definately do business with them again. I don't recall exactly what my bill was but I ordered both gears sets w/ install kits for about $400-450 total, and since I needed new carriers anyway, wen with Detroits F/R for about $400-450 each. They matched a price Leon Rosser special price on the Detroits, so shop for your cheapest prices, then call DDand cut your deal.

Re: where to buy gears

Matt,
I always use 4 Wheel Parts Wholesalers. I use always use the Fresno Ca store, but my favorite Salesman (Terry)just recently quit. They use US Gear for their low price gear sets. They have a no qiestions asked warranty policy and the US Gear products are very high quality(I have done 5 set ups with these gears with good results). I just purchased(2 weeks ago) the components I needed for my D44 front axle swap, 4.56 R&P = $125 / Master Kit = $39 / ARB = $565 / Shipping was free. Arrived in Reno in 2 days.

If at first you dont succeed, your replacement will try and try again.

Re: where to buy gears

sure they guarantee their gears, but when they destroy the locker with gear parts in them.. you are out that $$$.. and i don't like setting up gears all THAT much to do it more than once every couple years..

Re: where to buy gears

I know what you mean about doing gear set ups,Its not something I appreciate being forced to do. The US Gear R&P and master kits seem to have very good quality control. The master kits come with Timken Bearrings, The instructions are very thorough and I have achieved very, very good patterns. I have had no failures to date and have freinds who run them also with good results. I will continue to spend my time and money to use them untill they prove themselves otherwise unreliable. This will be my 6th set.
