stock high pinion?!?

I got this pic of the front end of a coil sprung (newer) samurai. Look it has a high pinion front diff to clear the tie rod which runs behind the diff!! I want one of thoes!
Also notice how the driveshaft is similar to a sidekicks.

Re: stock high pinion?!?

The idea of importing these to use on older Samurai's was kicked around by another Suzuki mailing list I'm on. Besides the difficulty of
getting them into this country the other problem discussed was the lack of R&P ratios available. Too bad,that high pinion would sure help
the front driveshaft angle on lifted rigs.

Re: stock high pinion?!?

Which Suzuki mailing list was that? What do you mean the lack of r&p ratios available?

Re: stock high pinion?!?

To the best of my knowledge only one OEM ratio is available (3.90?) and no aftermarket gears are available.Maybe some of our
oversea contributors can help us with facts and figures.

Re: stock high pinion?!?

Oh so the high pinion r&p are different than the low pinion samurai ones? i thought they would interchange. I also found out that the tcase is chain driven!

Re: stock high pinion?!?

<font color=blue>the high pinion setups have a reverse rotation compared to what we have, that's why you would need the other gears.

Re: stock high pinion?!?

Yup Nowhere,high pinion third members use "reverse cut gears".They're supposed to be 30% stronger than standard cut R&P's when
used in the front diff and you're going forward. The only weak point would be if you're backing up a hill.
