I second the rebuild. Then you know its good and you have something that should last without the unknowns of its prior history. And the axle ratio will be on the metal tag or on the build code sticker which may still be on the inside of the glovebox.

Alright, so I decided I want to do a rebuild so that I don't risk swapping axles and running into problems again. I think I am going to try and tackle it myself to save some money. I have never done gears before but I know I can figure it out if I take my time and get the right tools. I am going to see if I can tear into it this weekend to pull everything out and asses what needs to be replaced. I also think I am going to do a full rebuild on all the bearings and seals while I am in there.

As for parts, it appears there is a proven force store within 15 minutes of my house so I may try them. Otherwise is the randy's pinion and gears website randysworldwide.com? I google searched them and a few different ones popped up.

What brand gears would you guys recommend? I know I see a lot of people using Yukons. I guess it will depend on what all I will need to replace once I get into it but I know for sure the spiders need to be replaced. As for bearings I know Timken have a good reputation are there any others?

2001 2500 4x4 quad cab, Industrial Injection phat shaft turbo, Ind Inj 150 HP injectors, Air dog 100, 5" Turbo back exhaust, Quadzilla Tuner with Pod Controls, 47re rebuilt automatic trans with billet input, mid, and output shafts

timkin are good. i use USgears for my bearings and YUKON for my R and P. ive been using them since building rock crawlers with my auto teacher in HS. youkons can be noiser but they are strong as frigg and in our trucks noise is not an issue
