Ok, I had a thread a while ago about paying 500 for a set of d30/35's with alloy axleshafts in the rear and a locker, and 4.56 gears, less than 2 years old. My earlier quesions were about swapability, (his axles are disconnect), but I thought about just switching the carriers? Can you do that? I do not know very much about diffs, I know someone skilled has to set the gears, but if that is done, can I pull the carrier and put it in mine? Saving my non-disconnect axle and just throwing the axle shafts in the rear along with carrier and locker.
So is this possible? I think for 500, (might go lower), alloy shafts, 4.56 gears (not too old) and a detroit is not too bad.....is it?

i personally would never use a set of used gears and i would have a hard time using a used locker.i'm all about new but i do understand having to be on a budget so.....

a 30 is a 30 and a 35 is a 35 so yes you can swap carries from to another.i think i remember you saying something along the lines that you have a 8.25 out back,correct?now if i'm wrong and you do have a 35 out back then sure drop it in.now for the front.depending on what you have out front is dependant on if you can swap the gears over.if you have a high pinion and his is a low pinion then the gears are useless but the carrier can be swapped .your non disco shafts will work with that carrier.

here is your old post

since you have abs you could use the rear and just remove the brake assembly and hang them up without disconnectiong the lines.then swap axles and bolt you brakes up the new axle done.

i can't remember or not if the 97 had a low pinion front i believe it did.if it did then the carrier and gears can be swapped from that housing to your housing then use your non diso shafts.

I seem to space out what my jeep has evert time I post, I just need to add it to my signature... Rolling Eyes but
I have the dana's. What I was thinking is now that I realized it may be possible to just swap carriers front and rear and throw the axle shafts in? Would that be less work than swapping in the identical entire axles,(with all the stuff in them) and having to mess with the ABS switching and disconnect front axle?
Thanks a lot

i have answered this over and over ..............

just remove the brake assembly you don't have to undo a line at all just undo the whole backing plate off hang it up in the fender opening.swap the entire rear axle then bolt the backing plate along with all the brake hardware to new axle.

the front just swap carriers and keep everything else you have now

Sorry you misunderstood me, I was just asking which would be easier, carriers or whole axles.

That's what I think I deiced on, do the whole rear axle, just carriers up front so i dont get the discos.
Thanks for your help..

sorry i don't mean to have an attitude with you if thats what your thinking.the answers are there if you just go back.

switch the rear axle leave your brakes.the front swap the carriers its easier and better.
