Differential issues

Hey guys ... So I was just taking apart my differentials for some maintenance and looks like some of the teeth are broken in the gears ... Any help on this? Should I put back together and get new gears? New differential? I'm new to this, so any help, links, videos are appreciated ...

New spider gears is what you need, but you would need to take out the differential to replace the gears. Putting new gears in and properly setting the spacing for the gears can be a pain abf cannot be done without special tools. I personally would replace the spiders myself, then have a shop reinstall the diff for me. What axle do you have?

Know that Max tire size for a Dana 35 is really 31" tires with an open diff, and 33" if you are gentle. Some run on 33's for years with no problems, while some snap the first time they go 4wheeling. What size are you running? If I was you I would look into a ford 8.8 or Dana 44 swap or look into a superior super 35 kit.
