Ring & Pinion INSTALL KITS.

We have been waiting on Richmond to get us install kits for over 3 weeks now. Mike@Richmond has been trying to get an answer from his supplier, but still nothing.

So we contacted the owner of Ratech. He quickly grabbed his calipers & pad and came down to our our shop this morning. He and Tracey looked like professors as they took many, many measurements of seals,shims, pinion, differiential, bearings, and nuts.

Hopefully, soon, we will have some install kits for our Camaro5 members.


Stay tuned,

Craig@cincyspeed.com

I'll have to take a look and see if we can put a kit together.
Were one of the very few that offer an install kit for the GTO. Took awhile to track down some of the parts and the other we make.

Thanks
Chris

i just cant believe some of the other gear companies are not stepping up and making gears and kits,,, it would be easy money for them with how long it is taking to get parts that are supposed to be out months ago.

Quick update. If you have received your install kit already you need to contact the person you got it from. The Crush Sleeve is wrong.

We informed Don (Engineer @ Richmond)about it and he is already knocking out the new crush sleeves and shipping them to the customers. So its not to big of a deal.
I just wanted to give a heads up to the 45 members with the gears (50 4:10s were shipped, we have 5) and getting ready to install or have them installed before they tie up a lift waiting on the sleeve.

Ill take a picture of the Crush sleeves so you can make sure you have the correct one.

I have access to about 50 of them if needed.
Don @ Richmond will have them shipped soon for customers that already purchased the install kits.

If you are going to go thru all the work on replacing ring and pinions, you should take one more step and look at the 2 differential bushings. The OE units allow a rather significant amount of movement of the differential.

Pedders offers a regular performance upgrade diff bushing;
1. EP1167. this bushing is significantly firmer than OE and by design has engineered reliefs to assist in noise reduction. This bushing is good to 450hp at the rear. If you are using drag radials, you should step up to the next version.

2. Our HD differential bushing is significantly stronger and is p.n EP1167HD This bushing has a much higher dura and will have a reduction in the ability to dampen any kind of diff noise. But if you are going after serious performance, have rear hps over 450, or use drag radials, these are the diff bushings to get.

There are multiple other bushings that can seriously assist you in putting down the power better. If you need assistance, just ask

thanks
mike
