Re: tranny search (formerly $#!@ i can't afford this)
i just want to keep you all informed on my progress so that you can tell me
if i am going in the wrong direction. so far, i have these three options.
1. stock box
pros: OEM cons: 3rd gear faliure again in future? expensive.
2. 4kq box
pros: cheaper, vacuum diff, can drive around with my center diff locked (i
don't know why that is good) any others? cons: have to rig diff lock
switch, any others?
3. used s4 box. somebody just got it for $131.50 on ebay and i missed it!
oh well, i guess i will stick with the first two.
it is looking like i will be trying to find a 4kq box. does anybody know
how the gearing and r&p compare to the 80q box? am i gaining anything
besides added durability and a lockable center diff? also, what are the
_disadvantages_ to this unit? does anyone have one to sell me? thanks a
lot again - you all have been really helpful. i probably would have sold
the car by now if it weren't for all of the great advice.
