RE: finals on 4kq??


I can get a complete drivetrain from an 84 4kq. What results can be gotten if I use part or all the parts in my 82QTC.

It is 'final-drive related'. The Ur-Q Pro-Rally guys are always seeking out
84 4KQs to snatch the trannys (for the front diff) and the rear diffs.

Trans gearing is, I believe, lower in the 4KQ Vs the Ur-Q as well, mainly
the higher gears. Dunno about 84 4KQ Vs 85-87 4KQ trans gearing......
