14 bolt crush sleeve eliminator

This may be a gratuitous promotion of a product, however anyone who has ever setup a 14bolt or needed to replace a pinion yoke on a gm 14 bolt can appreciate this.



Back in November I was introduced to Randy Lyman, of Randy's Ring & Pinion at SEMA. Among the things we talked about was making a kit to replace the crush sleeve in the 14 bolt axle. I had been making this kit for years for my own use, and just a few months after I made the suggestion of the product it is available to the public.

Why will it not work on 14bts before 88? I'm confused? listings only say 89 and up? whats the difference? this has nothing to do with the straddle bearing on the pinion .

Rick told me the same, not sure why, but something must be different in the pinion support.

According to the Yukon site it only lists 88 and up? That's what had me confused?

Does anyone make solid spacers for the 9.5" 14 bolt or do I need to make my own?
