Icon4 Need Gears NOW!!

Ok. So i have to buy my gears for my truck soon and i thought i had what i needed and then noticed that its for the 8.8 rear and front.. Well my truck has the 8.8 rear but a dana 35 front.

So, is there a master install kit with everything i need for my truck with the 8.8 rear and dana 35 front?

EDIT: I need 4.56

Go to either Summit racing or JEGS and you will find everything you need for a rear 8.8 and dana 35. Just make sure you dont buy the parts for a dana 35 TTB.

Reider's good, but Summit's great too. I had fantastic 2 day service without special shipping from Brenspeed on eBay. I doubt they have D35 stuff though.

Yea, One for the 8.8 and the d35. Dont think anyone makes a combo kit. And as mentioned, make sure the gears for the d35 are not for a ttb d35

the Dana 35 TTB gears are reverse cut gears.....you need the standard rotation gears...

you will need to buy the parts seperate.....here is what you will need:
- front gears (standard rotation Dana 35 gears)
- front master install kit
- rear gears (8.8)
- rear master install kit

I recommend master install kits because they come with everything you need to do a proper install of gears (ring gear bolts, all the bearings, shims, crush sleeve, and mesh marking compound)

Takes me forever, lol. My rear takes about what the front takes for most (if I have to do it under the truck that is.)
