if this can be done (which i think it can) it would be really helpful for you. it took me longer to regear my 8.25 then it did to install my lift :crazy:

i never did my rear but i'm sure it's a hell of a lot easier than the front since you don't have to pull the axle out. set up a set of gears on my teachers ford 9" last semester and it was cake.

I carry Motive R/P's. They are a nice kit and WAY cheaper than the Yukons. Ive personally had more trouble out of Yukon gears than Motives. I hear alot of people running Yukons though.
PM me if you need a price for anything.

genuine gear cheaper and have a liftetime warranty also u can do that with your front diff although mine was leaking a seal and needs gearing any way ive had mine out for almost 3 months and no probs yet. i also cut the stub that goes into the knuckle on the outside of the cv off just for safety the cv is junk now but it was ruined before hand anyways. i would think ud be fine just pulling the cvs because i think its a sealed bearing correct?

I reccomend Yukon, I have installed sets of gears and all have been Yukon and all have run silent so far.
