Are you a mechanic with experience under the belt? You’re certified, and everything you know you’ve taught yourself. If you’re looking for advice and tips on rear end gear installation, you’ve come to the right place. The YouTube video “Spider gear installation Explained” reviews the installation process.
Can You Install Your Gears at Home?
This is a job that even skilled mechanics might not want to do at home. There are various reasons for this. It’s not to say it can’t be done, but it does require specialized tools, and there is very little room for error. If you don’t get the installation done right, you’ll be left without a car until you can solve the problem. You’ll need to find new parts and start all over again. Another key factor to consider is that not all installations are the same. Some rear end gears are more challenging to install than others. It depends on the vehicle. One of the most critical points is that you should have a system. Try to keep track of all the parts you remove and the order in which you remove them. Only buy quality parts. Don’t start until you have all the parts. Finally, properly break in gears and use gear oil.
