I had to grind a little on one tooth to get the pin in my 9 1/4 rear axle 4.56 gear.

Do not grind the teeth.... grind the pin... its cheaper to replace.

YOU want to make sure only ONE surface. DO NOT Grind either of the two surfaces that keep the axles shafts spaced appart. So you when you slid the pin in the axles will not be lose. You kind of want to look at the pin as a square. Top Bottom left and right... The axles shafts will be on the left and right and you can grind either the top or the bottom... just enough to make the clearance needed to slid past the ring gear.... this is a NON stressed part so the grinding will not hurt anything.

If you need a better explenation please contact me and I will go further into detail.

Shaved a tad of the tooth on my ring gear. Make sure you you get the correct pinion depth and tooth contact etc.

I replaced my gears with 4:56 gears and i ground one of the teeth just enough for the pin to slip by. If you were to grind the pin, you would have to grind the entire side. The area of the tooth that would be ground will not affect the function at all. Grind the tooth, not the pin.

I have to agree with Air Ram and Slammed1 ..... Grind the "PIN" if you grind it too much it is cheaper to replace like Air Ram said ..... if you grind the gear and have to have it replaced under warranty later on they will say you caused the problem since you ground a tooth.
Contact Air Ram or Slammed1 (Brian) I know either of these guys will help you and besides I know both of these guys are DT supporters and not gonna steer you in the wrong direction.

Just looked at the thread date ... 5-10-05 this thread was like 7 months ago :WHT:

Grind the pin. That's how I installed mine. I had help from a guy that does a lot of off road gear and axle installs. He also said it was the best way. Good luck on your install. Let us know how it went.

Mitch, I learned something new about the superchips programmer. I'll have to tell you through an instant messenger because it's a little detailed.
