I do all sorts of automotive and motor cycle work ,,, and I do Not rebuild a differential . Nope . Gotta know when to say when .


It really isnít too hard if you have the proper tools and pay attention. I rebuilt a buddyís front diff on an f150 years ago. I had never done it before but we dug into it and I setup the gears no problem. Lasted many years before he totaled it. It was on 38ís and he beat the heck out of that truck all the time.

Iím by far not an expert though. Just saying it isnít too hard to do correctly.

Nice, good price.

Yes, if I had the tools and the time, I'd definitely do my own re-gear. It's a matter of having the right tools and the patience to get it right. Backlash and pinion pre-load are measurable. Reading a gear pattern is somewhat subjective, but there are many sources you can reference to get it right. You might have to take it apart a few times to get the right specs, but that's part of it.

If a shop didn't have the right expertise to get it right the first time, they probably shouldn't be accepting the work in the first place.
