Re: R&P????

It is not an easy task.... like changing a spark plug.

Your best bet will be to either pick up a factory manual, and/or get a good install kit (like the one from USGear) that explains exactly what to do and how to read the patterns. Proper shimming and adjustment is key to long lived gears; this means proper reading and interpretation of tooth patterns. you really don't need all the fancy micro gauges if you have a good 'feel' for mechanical work and get the basics correct.

Re: R&P????

unless you've done hundreds and do know that specific "feel" minimum for gauges would be a magnetic Base Dial indicator. The hardest part will be your pinion depth, if you take it apart before you get your new install kit, make sure to save your old crush sleeve, as you don't want to use your new one until you have got your proper pinion depth or you wont have proper bearing pre-load, if you "crush" the new crush sleeve prior to final torqueing of the pinion nut

Yeah right! I'll pay someone to install mine for me! I have no clue when it comes to stuff like that! And I don't have the $$$ to try and get it right and blow a diff. because I didn't have it shimed right! I'm sure if I see someone work on one that I can get the hang of it!
