Spider gears

My spider gears are busted and I'm tired of waiting on the dealership so we took to west texas offroad. Right now I do not have the money to add lockers cause I want to regear as well so they are gonna just put some new spider gears in. My question is should I just have them weld my spider gears I no what to expect as far as pro and cons, but I want some other opinions.

Well if I do I won't be driving on the street much, just straight down the road to the public land or the buttes. I have another vehicle so that not a problem. So I guess I should say it don't have to be my daily driver.

Why not just put a spool in? Much less money than a locker and stronger than welding.

Well cause its a temp fix until I get the money up in a couple of months to get some 4.56 gears and Detroit lockers or possibly ARB air lockers.

Just leave it open, if its only going to be a few month till you change it not that big a deal. Plus, if its not done right, and decides to blow while your diving it, heck you could be looking at spending even more money.

holy crap. Buy 100 dollars worth of wrenches and do it yourself. Replacing spider gears is simple and takes maybe 15 minutes.

Do you have to pull the gears out? Because I don't know how to shim gears and I've never done any work like that my self. I have all the tools I should need.

Pull the cover.

Drain fluid.

Pull cross shaft pin.

Remove cross shaft.

Rotate case

Pull top gears out

Remove side gears.

Replace in opposite order. Really simple process.

You don't have to pull the axles? And labors not gonna be $100 everything done will be about $150 and if they break again then he said it will be warranty, unless I'm doing something dumb. And they already have it pulled half way apart.

You have to push the axles in to get the C Clips off. Then just move them out enough to pull the side gears.

Yeah I'm gonna let them do it. I'm sure I caould but I don't want to practice or learn on my vehicle. Not right now any way if I f**k something up I won't have the money to fix it anytime soon since my wife wants to get a new place, we gotta put a downpayment down that would more than cover some new axles gears and lockers.

I help my buddy rebuild his rear-end completely, not too hard at all, the shimming was the bitch of it all, but it only took us an hour of slow working to shim it.

If your carrier is still intact, throw an Aussie or some other lunch box style locker in it Easy as cake to install, I just threw one into my D30 and I love it! No sense replacing spiders if you want to lock it anyway. Heck, after installing the lunch box you may not need to get the detroit. Worst case scenario you could sell the lunch box when your done

Well it should be done today, and I would have gotten a locker but I want to re-gear it so I need to wait. Here shortly in a couple of months maybe sooner I'm gonna get 30 spline axles, 4.56 gears and detroit lockers, possibly ARB lockers depends on how much money I got so a locker would be a waste of money. I might look into that Aussie locker to I hear good things about them and they are cheap.
