Three Ways to Re-Gear Your Vehicle

Three Ways to Re-Gear Your Vehicle

Everyone likes choices. When it comes to regearing your vehicle, USA Standard Gear has three ways to do it. You can do a simple swap with a Ring and Pinion Set in your choice of ratios. Or, you can do a gear swap and add a Dura-Grip limited slip differential with a Ring and Pinion/Differential Combo. And if you have a truck or Jeep, you can replace the gears and do a differential overhaul with a USA Standard Gear Ring and Pinion Gear Kit Package.

What You Need to Overhaul a Differential

You need a lot of parts to overhaul a differential case. Fortunately, Yukon Gear Master Overhaul Kits have everything you need in one convenient package including top quality Timken bearings and races, a pinion seal, crush sleeve or preload shims, and a pinion nut. Yukon Gear even includes ring gear bolts, gear marking compound, and a gasket.
