Well a Super 35 kit consists of hardened alloy 30 spline shafts to replace your stock 27 spline shafts. It also includes a new locker to be able to accept the shafts. So installing it will mean needing to re-load your ring and pinion. The shafts aren't hard, but setting up your gears again is where most people have issues with the new carrier.

Well odds are he'll just be transplanting his ring gear from one carrier to the next. But yes you are correct. If you are changing the ratio's gotta tco the front as well.

Good question. Im planning to do both front and rear with 4.56 when I get home. The axles you can do yourself but I would leave the gears to a good shop. If there off just a little, you just wasted alot of time and money. Just my .02

You don't need to do a complete setup of your gears after installing the locker, the only part of the gear setup that needs to be done is setting the backlash. Backlash is the amount of "slop" between the ring & pinion gears which is adjusted by shimming the locker either left or right until you get the same amount of backlash that is there now. That said, most shadetree mechanics would be in over their head setting their axle's backlash. Most shops will charge $200 or so to install a Super 35 and set the backlash and for most people, that's the way to go.

So Jerry if you are putting in a completely different carrier you wouldn't suggest re-setting the pinion depth also?
