Lol yeah get on the bus to work and half the guys on it are downing entire animal packs in one gulp or going to town on a quadruple sized protein drink. Funny how bodybuilding.com has a checkout setting for deployed military. It even says something like "don't worry, we know how to ship to overseas APO boxes" lol.

Hell yeah, and they ship surprisingly fast also. Not much else to do over there anyways. Where have you deployed to?

I've been all over the place flying but actual deployments have been the Deid, Dhafra and a shorty to Kanahar. Which is next to nothing for a guy in over 10 years oddly enough. I'm slated to go very soon but with my knee possibly needing a rebuild or at least some injections/therapy I'm probably on hold till May.

I run 3:73 in my 88 hatch. Motor is a bit built already so it pulls off the line and on the hiway. I hiway drive mine lots tho I don't like the 3:73 for a 6 hour hiway drive but in town and city they are fun as £u€k!! If I didn't have to see any hiway I would prob go 4:10, be a street eater.

Doing 65-70mph the 3.73s should be right in a sweet spot with a car with overdrive. If you are doing like 80+ then yeah it'll be 2500 or more.

I guess my trans is geared different but in 5th I'm only around 2400 @ 75mph with 4.10s. And she is a beast out off the line in first. Its also am 85 4bbl carb car with jus heada an cam. But she cruises awesome with 4.10s. The t-5 trans is out of a 95cobra tho

How are they on the rpms? Haven't put them back in yet. I was told this car had 3.55s when i bought, so that's why I went with the 4.10s. Come to find out, it has 2.73s.... Good thing I rebuilt the traction-lok, the rpm/power difference is going to be ridiculous.

I know I know.... why didnt I check before buying them?!? lol

2800 isn't that bad at 60. Right now I do 3000 at 70-75mph. I am building it mostly for the strip though.

Well then I'm guessing wrong..if ur spinning 3000 at 70-75 now with 2.73s the 4.10s will b definitely good for strip but a headache on any road over 50mph speed limit...fun for short trips...

Yeah, i'm going to break the gears in slow and test how they respond. If it's too much I'll eat the $150 and drop down to lower gears and sell the 4.10s on CL.

If I shim out the pinion behind the bearing, do I have to shim the crush sleeve the same amount?

All I ever do, and I'm sure some peeps might not agree with me, but I never use dials and gauges, I take my hand and feel how much slack is between the gears that are in it and duplicate that slack with the new gears, but I also check ring and pinion gear contact after I get the slack I'm looking for, and about 90% of the time I use the same crush sleeve, done prob a few dozen and had a couple with slight whine , but they were with 430 and 456 gears

Right now I am having trouble getting the yoke fully seated and all the slack movement out of it. I forgot to shim out the new pinion bearing the same distance as the old one, so I think I was running out of threads. Once I get the yoke to fully seat and have the resisted rotation I should be all set.

Got everything set, shimmed pinion like old one and got this booboo wear pattern. Sighhhhhh. That pinion bearing is not very easy to remove to reshim. Blah!

Reshimmed pinion bearing, had good wear pattern, backlash set to .013", yoke had good resisted rotation. Runs smooth but whines like a mofo when let off the gas. Is that all shim adjusting to stop it from whineing?
