    things were going great....until....it came time to put the pinion into the flange..

    factory 29 splines
    pinion 27 splines


    ECGS failed to mention that and now scrambling to find a way to make it work...might have to order the flange and have it overnighted which means truck is down....

    hoping for a miracle!

    Wierd that they would do that. Is that one of the parts that is assumed to be purchased or did they send the wrong one?

    assumed they would sell it with the kit, seems how it is required with 2006 tacomas!!!!!


    so fucking pissed right now...part is being overnighted and will be at the shop tomorrow...i'll be in NY so i won't be able to drive my truck until next week

    leaving it in Jace's hands to wrap up over the weekend

    so if you plan on re-gearing...MAKE SURE YOU GET A NEW PINION FLANGE/YOKE!!!!!!

    called around to all the shops in denver and nobody carries the flange in stock



    :frusty:
