    IIRC gears need to be installed in pairs, 1-2, 3-4, 5-R.
    So is 3 and 4 strait cut or is it just 1 and 2?

    Where are you located... also... what year is the transmission from. 02-05 work together, and 06-07 work together.

    im in florida and the trans is for a 02 - 05. the only difference should be the axleswhich you can pick up cheap. i would think that if you you have an 06 you would be more willing to swap whole drive train. the gears are to long they must have changed it for gas mileage. compare that gearing to any gearset for any kinda racing there all shorter.

    final drive also went from 3.9 to 3.7. The actually engine RPM to wheel RPM output is unchanged. The major difference is the fact that I'd have to get a different rear end for these gears. I'm not wanting to have to get a new rear differential as well. Bit of a PITA

    yah i under stand what your saying about not wanting to change the rear end, but thats what im saying. changeing your gearing with 300hp you should notice a big difference in acceleration. also with longer first gear to get you going out if the hole and less stress on the drive train and when you hit 5th gear the car wont die as bad because this trany has no over drive. if your not willing to do a little extra thats cool and i honestley thank you for bringing it up for the other people that are looking.

    sinister,

    you do not have to change the rear end gear it will work fine 3.90 would work better, the only thing is your speedo will be of a little. you can order the part from kaaz to corect it though.

If I used a different final drive transmission with the same ration rear diff, then the front wheels would be moving at a different rate of speed than the rears. This would obviously create a problem driving, and ultimately ruin the rear diff, front diff, or more than likely the center diff.

    If I got the gearset from KAAZ and installed it myself... the final drive would remain the same as i have now. The gear ratios themselves would change, but my final drive would remain the same. That's why they offer the speedo gear that's accurate for my 3.7 final drive.


    The KAAZ gearset does not replace the final drive gear. It only replaces your driving gears.

    By installing your completely built 3.9 final drive transmission into my vehicle that has a 3.7 final drive compatible rear differential, I'd be making a very costly mistake.
