axle gear change

Post by jgreen on 1/23/2012, 10:36 pm

ive done and i do alot of mechanics ive done engine,transmission,axle.... etc but i have never changed ring and pinion gears so my question for you all is has anyone done them and what your pointers are can i get away with changing them without a backlash gauge? if thats even what its are called...
