Re: Ring gear diameter in the Zuki Axles?
Actually it was for my own curiosity, I have the sizes memorized for just about every other axle, but know very little about the Zuki's, so I'm gonna learn.
I'm leaning towards the D44 rear with a narrow track D30 front. I have spare parts for the D30, and they're cheap, I just need a 4.88 R&P and a lockright ($240). The GOOD thing is I'll probably never break the D44 with the 33's, and the D30 should hold up well also, especially with the light weight and no power. I already studded the hubs, and it has new joints as well, and discs. The rear parts are cheap, except for the shafts, which hardly ever go. I have another carrier; bearings and shoes are very inexpensive items as well, and a mini-spool for it. All in all, I think it's the cheapest way to go without spending a lot of money, while getting beef and not a lot of added weight as well. The rest I'm leaving alone, except for maybe a T-90 tranny added in there for the extra low ranges.
