3.73 ring & pinion for 8.25" chrysler rear end???
So, the rearend in my jeep needs the ring & pinion replaced. The bearings have been done TWICE and went bad again , so the guys said "well, I guess we will have to replace the ring & pinion gears too. since we haven't got it fixed right yet, we will take care of it under our warranty - the gear set will cost us around $300"
their supplier CANNOT get that gear ratio from the manufactuer because they are on back order for at least 60-90 days. they said they called the dealers and the dealers want $600 for the gears!!!! (i did call dealers and confirm). However, the dealers do not have them in stock and they need to be ordered from the manufacturer....... go figure. AND - THEY SAID IF THE DEALER CAN GET IT, I WOULD HAVE TO PAY THE DIFFERENCE OF $300
So I found it on quadratec's website for $279. They called quadratec and were told that it is a drop ship item directly from the manufacturer and the manufacturer does not have any in stock......wtf?
all others on that site say "coming soon" but the one I need allows you to put it in your cart and order it???? I called quadratec to confirm and they said there is no way to know until monday and they can call the manufaturer.
DOES ANYONE HAVE A CONNECTION ? I NEED A RING & PINION FOR MY 2006 GC - IT HAS A 8.25" CHRYSLER REAR END WITH 3.73 RATIO.
IS THIS A COMMON PROBLEM???
