Set up some toy 4.56 gears today.
Setup some used 4.56 gears with a spare ARB I had for the DD.

Tools all organized.


Ring gear installed on carrier.


70 Ft Lbs on the ring gear bolts.


Housing all cleaned up.


Driving in the pinion bearing cups.


Went with .070 on the pinion shim.

Set the preload on the carrier bearings and the back lash on the used 4.56 gears.


.070 of pinion shim got the pattern right where we want it!

Finished up by setting the pinion bearing preload with a solid pinion spacer. Didn't get any photos of that.

Nice :)

It's really not *that* bad of a job. Scary at first but feels good doing your own. :)

Ya the biggest thing is having all the right tools.

Hopefully those photos are not of the final set up. The coast side looks nice, but the drive side has the pinion too deep. Not a really good set up for strength or longevity or noise
Were these used gears or new?

They are used gears. I'm very confident they are right where they need to be!

EKJ 11-20-2013 06:25 AM

Im sure you know that with used gears you want to focus on the coast pattern. :-)
