Front Gears same as Rear Gears / HUM??
So I just put 4.10's in my rear (8.8) and I had ordered my Richmond Gears from Summit. I thought that the front and rear were the same ring and pinion set. But apparently, they aren't. I was also going to replace my bearings and seals and the like. I know that the gear sets are not the same for the front and rear because the bearings don't fit.
BTW, I'm not talking about different ratio's (3.73 vs 4.10), I'm talking about the actual size of the ring and pinion
Do you guys know if they are the same ring and pinion set? and I'm just on crack
How many shims did you guys have to put on your rear pinion? Any suggestions for when I do the front?? I first put (on my rear gears) 2...not enough....then put 3......still not enough.......then put 5 (becuase of the wear pattern, it needed A LOT more), ........crap...too much it doesn't spin. So I now have 4 on there now, with a little hum.
Does the hum ever go away??
Thanks for the input !!
