Default few ?'s after gear install.

just switched from 2.73's to 3.73's anyways my question is after I got it back and lifted it the wheels have some play in the back they can go in and out a little. What is that and how important is it to fix now.

You can always call the dealership to find out. I have a HPP for sale that you can use to change your speedo whenever you change gear or tire size...

So how do you like the 3.73's? I plan on going from 2.73's to 3.73's also.
Would you say it's worth it?

oh yeah I love it. On the other hand my tires do not before I could stall and launch with a little spinning now If I punch it in second I get smokey burnouts. I still get exceptional gas mileage as well. well worth it.

That's very good to hear!! My 2.73's don't want to spin off the line. If I do a brake stand they will. Do you have a stock stall yet?

BUMP... just gonna see if I can get a little more input on the axle play. How would you get that diagnosed would you have to buy more rearend fluid so they can take it apart and look or what?

We have C clip axles, they do that a little, it did it before you just didnt notice because you werent looking.

And I highly recommend a stall to you guys that are discussing it. Nothing like the difference a stall makes for our auto cars
