    Default Regearing a jag rear….. advice before I start

    Ok, following everyone’s advice on doing gears before converter I have gone ahead and ordered a bunch of stuff, probably would be cheaper to farm it out, but like the guy the guy in the video I’m going to ask people to watch ( to tell me if he’s got everything and or missed anything I should know) I want to do as
    Much of the wrench turning on my car as I can!!!
    I have ordered every part number he says, and got the Dana 3:73 gears. I haven’t ordered a shim pack yet as it’s one of
    my questions……
    here is the link if anyone has the time to watch it.. if not I will still move forward, but might get stopped awaiting on a part that’s not mentioned etc



    now my first question on the shim pack, is it carrier specific? Housing specific? Or gear specific? It’s a jag Salisbury diff, will have auburn gear lsd and Dana 44 gears….

    Ok, this isn’t off to a great start, been refunded my money from company I ordered the auburn gear carrier from as they say it’s not available, found another company that claimed they had it, then I get email saying expect delay in shipping as it’s coming direct from manufacturer, guess I’m waiting regardless because I also go email from kegs saying both the gears and the yoke are back ordered……. More to follow if I ever get my parts….

    It sounds liked a fabbed 8.8 or 9" may be the fastest route lol. Good luck, delays really suck!

    Another option is to buy a pumpkin from a salvage yard and just bolt it in. I believe almost all will interchange and will be a Salisbury unit. Get one from a '93-96 XJS as most were 3.54 power locks. I used one from '95 with the 3.54 PL and run a Yank SS 3600 convertor. Quite the combo but you'll need some tires. I just put new ones on mine.
