Ok, Im getting a little bit of a wine from my rear end not sure if this is bad but im guessing it needs oil. what kind of oil does it take?

And on the rear end gear i hear that putting a gear back their is equal to 150 more HP from the motor. so that being said i wanna get one!

1st question what gear do i want for a dailly driver.

2nd question, How hard are they to change yourself?

Thx 4 all the help!:bigthumbsup

Ok. If you're getting a whine from the rear, first question is:
Is there a leak? If no leak, then it's not low on oil. It doesn't go anywhere, so that means it's something else.

Question 2: Is the whine all the time, or when you take your foot off the gas and coasting? The answer will help determine what the problem is.

A rear gear swap is a technically complicated process and it's possible to be done yourself but ONLY if you have experience in swapping gears. It's not something for a novice.

If it gets worse when coasting, then it could a sign the carrier bearing going out. Either that, or the gears are getting worn and the clearance is increasing, causing the whine.

ya, imma wait and see if it gets louder. it may just need a fluid change cause it has been siting up for a long time.


What kind of fluid should i run in it?

Ok, After driving it today i notice i think it is the Rear End that is makeing a whining noise. but when im doing 60mph and i put it into N then the noise goes away. and comes back when i put it back into gear.

!

gears dont add any horsepower...

buy 3.73s and rebuild your re-end while ur at it...

that will get rid of that whine, plus u will have a nice set of gears in there.
