1. Not sure on the SF14. D44 has a carrier break at 3.73-Down and 3.92-Up. So you would need a new carrier for the front.GMC said:1. Would I need a different carrier for a 14 bolt SF 6-lug with 3.73 gears and the same for a dana 44 6-lug with 3.73 if I wanted to go with 4.56 gears?
2. How much stronger are the D44's with 8-lugs compared to the 6-lug versions? Thanks.
setting backlash is my main fear. i don't want to pull the cover three months from now and see a wear pattern from hell! but i guess with some help from you guys i could do it. how much is a dial indicator?rockmup said:Do it all your self or let them do it. Take your time and you should not have any trouble.
Nothing worse than having someone bring something in half done. My labor cost is the same because of how long it takes to figure out what they really have going on.
beer sounds good. . . slightly illegal though :flipoff2: :flipoff2:rockmup said:You can get cheap magnetic indicator stands from Harbor Freight but don't cheap out on the dial. You get what you pay for.
I think the last one was 35.00 from Enco in sparks Nev. I belive that Randys R/P sells install kits that include the tools. I'm sure others do too.
So long as you set it right befor you close it up you should have no problem. Take your time and have the beer when your done.
