changing rear end gears
Sat Aug 22, 2009 7:25 pm


I have an 01 Eagle and want to go to 336 gears. Does anyone have a set of for sale or know where I might be able to pick up the ring and pinion for the 01?

Thanks,

Bill

Ahoy, Bill,

My Eagle -01 rear axle is (I believe) a Rockwell SSHD unit.

Here are some records which I have:

*Eagle rear axle Rockwell Model 143 s/n 0479489 3rd mem casting A312 Ratio 4.11:1 . Pinion shows 9-37, and numbers 35319. Inst of new 3.333:1 R/P and new brgs complete 9/99.

I don't recall my source of the R/P, but check with Rockwell and they may be able to suggest a supplier.

Good luck /s/ Bob

Clifford, I didn't actually post that on the forum. It was something I found here locally and asked you about.

I don't remember if these were for an 01 or not but the guy has the rear end and also a steering box.

He was asking $950 for the rear differential. I was in contact with him back in March. Don't know if he ever sold it or not. His e-mail is MUSLTANGER@aol.com if anyone wants to contact him. If someone wants to get this and needs my help, just let me know.

These guys may know what will work and where to get it.
I think the 01 accepts rearends that just are not available for the later models. No drop box.

Thanks all, for the help. I emailed the guy and he still has that differential and it is for an 01 but the ratio is 3.73.
I will still be looking.
