Re: destroyed ring-gear
i got the gears from a front kick. i did all the installation. and it worked for 3 years.
the vibrations are from the drive-shafts. before i installed the front cjs in the rear there were no vibrations.
i was driving in the mud, no problem. when i put in the 2wd on road i noticed a noice in the back. stopped and looked around but couldnt see anythig. thought it is some mud in the breaks or wheels. after about 20m the noice got louder. so i stopped again. checked everything, especially the drive-shafts, but they seemed ok. after another 20m or so there was a terrible noise... this was the point when i decided not to drive any more...
yesterday at home i opened the diff and looked at the oil. there was lots of metall in the oil. so i knew that there was a problem inside... opened it and then i saw the damage...
i just called a parts guy and tomorrow i will get a rear kick axle. i am going to build my own hybrid axle which will hopefully last longer.
