8.8 mustang 5 lug converson also gear swap need help
ok so im about wraped up with this project apporaching final steps.
i got the new ring gear on the dif evenly and torqued.(4:10) and im about to install the new pinion gear. however, i tried to install everything with the old bearings and shims to see if it would all work together and it freezes when i tighten the bearing cap and shim braces on the sides of the dif.
so im going to order new bearings and hope this will solve my issues. Any tips?
ps i know about the backlash gap between 6-12thousandths, but any tips when installing the new pinion?
plz anyone who has done the 5 lug conversion to a 89ish mustang 8.8 and replaced gears HELP! im putting the axle in my prerunner ranger 1994 with 31" tires.
