Default Ring and Pinion swap directions.

Shops and experienced people please chime in. The process of installing a rear diff I'm understanding is Remove back cover Remove remaining side bolts Mark lash and backlash Press out pinion Press off bearing and shim Press on bearing and shim on new pinion Press in pinion Adjust lash backlash and shim Re assemble Chime in if you can elaborate on those steps or I'm missing something.

The best answer is that you DON'T SWAP THE RING AND PINION. Keep them with the matched case and just swap the carrier. 99% of the time you don't even need to adjust the backlash or seals!

^^^I've done it both ways and putting the carrier into the case with the ratio you want is (by far) the easiest way to go.

If you don't have that donor case to put the chunk into, then you have no choice but to swap out the pinion. If that is the situation, there are good instructions in most every edition of the FSM.

You can pay for a temporary "subscription" to techdocs.subaru.com, or ask nicely for another member here to forward it to you.

PM me with a good email address and I will send you the required reading. I don't have any of the special tools for setting pinion depth....you'll be on your own with that part.

When I did mine, it took me a long time in assembling, checking, disassembling, adjusting shims, etc.....to get the pinion depth right, close to 6 complete tries anyway(I hate math). Once that was good, the rest was easy.

Hey, don't bother with that site, it is a ripoff.

Go to Ebay, and get a FSM on disk for your year of car.
