So Yukon master overhaul kits are quite expensive but look like a good assortment of shims over motive gear brand. What brand over haul kits do you all recommend ? Both kits seem to have timken bearings with is good. Same goes with gears what brand is a good quality brand or should I stick with dana spicer on gears? Pretty much no gears are made in the USA I am learning.
Thanks
 
I only use the Spicer Master Install kits these days. I order them off rock auto.

Why? Full-size shims!!


Thanks I’ll look it up, does make sense why the full size shims. This will be my first time re gearing I’m kinda curious about this one. I have heard it doesn’t matter to shim on inside or outside tbe bearing. What do you prefer? Don’t worry this axle is out tbe jeep I will take as much time needed to get it perfect.
 
The Yukon install kits are good quality. Compared to revolution kits I’ve had the Yukon kit had a better selection of shims (I actually had to steal leftover shims from my old Yukon kit because I couldn’t work out what I needed with the revolution kit).

Thanks it was here somewhere that I had read of someone saying to order more shims as he had more of a selection.
