So I was about double check the instructions on HL on how to shim my ring gears and outside and put in my new pinions, but for the last day or 2 (for me at least) HL's forum has been down.

I have done some searching but cant seem to find the info here, or in the pinned topics. Realy all I need to know is how to shim the front and the rear ring gears to get the lash correct.

Thanks for any help.

I just finished the front and with the extra shim (the one I ordered) it was too tight. I talked with a friend that has 4.0s in a t cat and said he didnt need the extra shim. I pulled it out then tightened all bolts and it feels perfect to me.

I am no R & P specialist but it feels like factory and if I turn the pinion and hold the ring gear there is no play what so ever before the ring gear turns.

I dont know of anybody runnin one like this but it feels just right to me.

a lot of use that done the swap had to customize the shim it was to thick it had to be sanded or filed down put some gear marking compound in and check the pattern you want a good mesh of the pinoin and ring gear.
