NORTH BRANCH, Minn. — Over the last 40 years, millions of Chrysler, AMC, and Jeep vehicles have used these differentials, propelling these high-performance vehicles to victory on the street, in drag racing, and other forms of racing. After years of use, these differentials require rebuilding, and of course aftermarket suppliers offer ring and pinion and other parts to upgrade these axles.
In this Workbench series title, the focus is on the disassembly, inspection, and step-by-step rebuild of the most popular high-performance differentials. Axles and differentials are not incredibly complex components, but there are some specific steps to follow for rebuilding, upgrading, and setting them up properly, and this book demystifies the process
and explains it in detail. A book dedicated to the Dana, Chrysler with and without Sure-Grip, and AMC axles has never been published before.
This book will also feature extensive gear and application charts, so the reader selects the correct gear ratio for a particular vehicle and application. Special coverage is therefore dedicated to ring-and-pinion gears. In addition, selecting the best aftermarket and production axle shafts is covered as well as modifying and upgrading the differential housings.
