Ring & Pinion

Post by mnavratil » Mon Aug 26, 2019 4:29 pm

We are asked questions all the time about ring and pinions. One of the most common questions is, “I just installed a new unit and am getting noise, why am I getting noise?”

Noisy ring & pinions can be fixed with the proper set up; backlash, good pattern…and shims. If still experiencing ring and pinion noise, you will need to disassemble and add a shim to the original pinion shim setup. This will result in better gear contact which helps to eliminate the noise.

Here is a list of some of Transtar’s most popular shims:
742G202- Shim kit, GM8.6, 72-UP
741A202- Shim kit, GM7. 5/8.2/8.4, FORD 8.2
716B202- Inner pinion shim kit, DANA60
714A202- Shim kit, DANA44
718B202- Shim kit, DANA80, F350/F450
