What is the quickest way to add positraction to my car??? As you can see in the video, it needs it badly. Thanks!
You know what? That is a good idea of keeping the gears and changing the carrier. I ei explore that avenue. There has to be one for sale somewhere.Then my friend, get out your wallet.
A good 4x4 shop can install it in less than a day, but you need to find a shop that does differentials all the time. I did mine myself with new axle bearings too, and it was a multi day project. The time consuming part was getting the lash between the gears and the depth correct. I am fortunate to live just a few miles from Randy's Ring & Pinion where I was able to get replacement parts for the ones I messed up as well as some really helpful guidance.
I installed Richmond 3.73's on an Eaton Posi, although you can keep your gears and just change the carrier.
Let us know what you do.
Used a Richmond Loc Rite in my S 10 7.5 diff.Very easy to install and no problemsA Powertrax unit is just as expensive as a posi carrier but all it does is replace the spider gears, so you dont have to remove the ring and pinion and bother with all those shims and stuff. So it is way quicker and easier to install.
One word. NOAre you talking welding and making the axle solid???
During my High School days, my buddy Gregory had a 69 Z-28 with solid axle. I liked it then, but what is the effect of a solid axle on the freeway at freeway speeds?
Thanks for the reply!:yes:
