5.29 in Gen 2.5
« on: October 07, 2019, 04:13:56 PM »
I scored front and rear 5.29's from a Montero guy locally that had them since 2003, that he imported from Australia and never installed, I have a 2000 Montero that I installed a 99 Montero rear differential into it. After lots of searching and Mitsubishi manual reading, I don't know if the pinion with 25 splines will work in my 2000/1999 front and rear differentials. Any help would be appreciated. I decided that they are the proverbial "Pig in a poke", but for $400 I jumped on them ASAP. I counted the ring gears 37 teeth and the pinion's 7 teeth and yep, they're 5.285 gears (I just took the sellers word for it, then confirmed after the purchase!). Both pinions have 25 splines.

What do I need to know, to make these work. I'm looking to run 17x8 and 35" wheels in future, that's why i grabbed them.

Thanks, Machobishi

Did you ever get the gears installed?
