I was thinking in the same line thanks. You guys are great. Well I recieved my gears today via ups now all I need to do is wait for the master setup kit and then I start working on the axle. If I need help I will sure be asking.BlueAngel said:There is no crush sleeve on the XJ HP30. Grind an old cup on the inner pinion bearing so you can remove by hand to change the shims. Start with same shims as you have now, assemble without any pinion preload shims and tighten the pinion nut until there is a slight resistance. Make sure the backlash is within specs and run the pattern. Repeat as necessary.
