Speaking about lower R+P

So everybody knows in swb trackick's
Auto (3spd) =4.62's
5spd manual = 5.13

So what vehicle do the factory 5.38s come out of. This has been something that has recently started bugging me as my lil cousin wants to lift her kick and put 32's on it. I have complete sets of both the 4.62's and 5.13's but I think with her auto it won't be enough (for street/light duty wheeling). Anybody know?

Yeah, I know I should know this but... I don't.

Why not run a 4.1 gearset in your zuk t-case, then you could leave the toy R&P alone. Have you priced R&Ps for toys yet?? What ratio is in your toy axles now?? Going to 5.29s can get pricy, depending upon whether or not you can set the gears up yourself.

The low factory gears were actually 5.62 and came on the aforementioned 1.3 carburated early 89 kick. Good luck finding it, though!

5:62,5:12,4:62 and there was one more gear set offered but dont recall what it was 4:30 maybee while researching the sidekick gear swap I talked to local suzuki shop and this is what they told me, but the 5:12 manual and the 4:62 auto's were the
most popular and easiest to find.

If your cousin is gonna be running 32's, you should look at the 5.83 set from Calmini - it's just the ticket to keep the engine running near the optimum range. Standard 'Kick tires are 27" so moving to 32's would be a 18.5% increase in diameter, and moving from the 5.125 to the 5.83 is almost a 14% reduction.

Oh, and to put 32's under a Kick without serious sawzall work, it's gonna take about 6 inches of lift.

Calmini

Bob,
Calmini stuff is a lot more expensive than finding gears at the PnP. I'll just throw the 5.13's in and tell her to deal with it until she can afford the calmini t-case gears.

As for the lift, It's already on order from Calmini (and yes it's 6")
