Regardless of who says not, its a fact... And then there is the fact of weather your vehicle is a Premium model or base model...The base model have quite a bit less sound deadening in them and this will just excentuate the different ratio gear noise....Like I said if its only a "faint' noise, get it looked at, but quit worrying about you are just hearing something your not used to, from the get go...........best regards Plum
I just had a set of FRPP 3.73 installed this morning with a mini install kit (no bearings) due to low mileage (1100). No abnormal noises. Sounds exactly like it did with the 2.73. Butt dyno feels a huge improvement, as expected.
