am i better off buying gears new or saving a few bucks from e-bay? i see them with under 10,000 miles. some say brand new with some surface rust.......would those be ok? also......what do i need to buy to make my 93 mark VIII rear housing into a trac-loc? can i take it into a shop and have them do it for me? or can i buy a part to go inside it? i don't know much about these.
I'm not a pro in this by no means but I would go with new gears. They are machined in sets and after wear I would think it would be difficult to haeve them set-up properly to wear just as they were set when new. Summit sells their own name gearsets for $139. for either 3.73's and 4.10's for the 8.8 inch ring gears. As for the LSD differential you may have to shop around or see what's availabe in the classifieds here. Thy can be pricey and many require the jump to 31 spline axles which are much stronger than stock. Noe how about a guru's opinion! Mark
