Rear diff Regear

Hey guys, So I started the front diff IFS thread for a reason, (http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...ff-locker.html)
My rear diff started the dredded whine! I did diff fluids today and found this:




So Im starting to think regearing is in my near furture.

Now the list, what all do I need to regear... what spline is my 09 TRD OR 8" elocker diff? do I need a new install kit to make my 3rd member more reliable?

Please if you know, LMK cause I gots to start shopping now. I will be going to east coast gear supply so links to there store would help ALOT!

If you cant tell Im new to the regearing side of things, so help would be great.
all im after is the parts so I can just take everything to a shop and say fix it lol.

check out east coast gear supply, they have a ton of regear stuff.

depending on the tire size you are going with i think most people go with 4.56. I just regeared to 4.10s which is what i think yours is stock.

Even with 33s you may still be in the clear as far as regear. I have a 5 luck so i can't be positive. If you go 35s you would defiantly need to regear to 4.56. Theres really 4 ways you can do it. You can bring the truck to a shop and have them change the gears, or take the 3rd member off and bring it to them (will save a few hundred in labor), buy a whole new third and install it(easiest way but not the cheapest) or do it yourself, Im not good with gears and getting them to run perfect so i didn't attempt it, but you may be.

Heres the gear set, I've heard good things about yukon but they are more expensive.

along with that you will need a rebuild kit if I'm not mistaken

i just bought the whole 3rd member, took my stop one out, installed the new one, and sent them my old one. It was maybe 100-200 bucks more but i know it was done right.

Lol.

The first failure was from wheeling. Replaced it with a boneyard diff. The second failure was from wheeling
Replaced with nitro 4.56 diffs from ECGS. So far things have held up. If this third gearset shits I'm ripping the whole fucking elocker axle out and putting in a rockjock.

The truck almost has 28000 miles!

The thing that sucks with the TRD and elocker is there isnt a ARB locker made for the rear that I know of. Also for a complete list of what you may or may not need talk to Chase at ECGS he knows his shit...

The carrier isn't the problem. The diff housing is weak and deflects under stress.

I think the ECGS assembled diffs are the way to go. Nobody can put together Toyota diffs as good as those guys, and it is a fairly simple driveway install to swap the assembled diffs. Took me and a friend a few hours to install front and rear.

ZUK does an aweso me job but declines to clamshell diffs because its so time consuming. ECGS diffs are definitely the best deal on the market.

How many miles you got on your nitro gears so far, do you wheel alot?
