Trac Lock Spider Gears
I have a dana 35 with a factory lsd, the spider gears are missing teeth and i was going to do an 8.8 swap but do to money and the need for a quick fix im just going to fix the dana 35. Will these spider gears work? Whats the install like since i have the lsd?
I also found these which have the clutches

get the one with the clutches, or just pick up a open carrier and slap it in, putting the limited slip gears back in is a real big pain:banghead:

I thought changing a carrier was extremely difficult?

Changing it is not the difficult part.... setting it up properly is.... and its CRITICAL to the life of your gears...

What do you have to do?

make sure its shimmed properly (left to right), usually if your just replacing spiders you dont have to worry about moving shims, but you wont know unless you have a dial indicator to check the amount of movement, was the carrier loose in it ? or just some bad teeth on the spiders?

Spider gears bad, that it. But really bad xD half the teeth are missing and in the oil jug hahahah
