I am trying to put the pinion gears back into my trac-loc. What shims did u guys use? Any tips on getting the gears back in? I tried the 3 packs per side with the .40 shim but the gear would not go in. HELP!
Doesn't matter which ones WE used becuse every gear set up is different. You'll just have to start trying thinner shims on one side at a time until it goes back together. It's a bit of a PITA. THe easiest way to get it back together in the car is to install the drivers side axle have a helper turn it slowly after you've held the spider gears up in place. As that axle turns, the gears will rotate into place...if you don't have it shimmed too tight.
