Default Ring and Pinion Swap

Are there any special tools needed for changing the ring and pinion in the R160? Thanks.

Don't you need shims and stuff? And the stuff to set bearing preload? And a press? Maybe not.

When I broke my pinion, I didn't need any of that. I replaced both the ring and the pinion.

At least chec to make sure the bearing pre-load and backlash adjustments are correct. The biggest variation in tolerances comes from the diff. carriers. If you were changing out a carrier you would DEFINATELY want to re-shim the whole thing. Changing a ring and pinion will alter stuff slightly. If you are in the middle of the tolerances before you changed anything you would be fine. But if you were on one of the outer ends of the tolerances the new ring and pinion may have pushed you out.

Read the F**ing Manual=RTFM

4.44 F/R can be purchased from Rallispec in NJ or at least they can get them.

What Subaru manual would specify how to do a ring/pinion swap? I would be interested in purchasing it.

Read The Fiicking Manual!

Sorry if that sounds unhelpful, but if you are going to do it right you need to have the workshop manual (pdfs on various sites) and read it. The USDM sti pdfs are pretty good but I forget where they are hosted.

This isn't the guy you're talking about. It's some Russian website, but the page is exactly the same.
