Application Notes:  High Pinion units should only be used in front axle applications.  Spool lockers should only be used in rear applications.  Spools will be harder on axles than a selectable or automatic locker.  Fully built 3rd members will not fit stock Tacoma or T100 axles.

Super Finish 3rd members do not require any break-in period.

Note: V6 Housings do not have an ABS sensor port and are not compatible with the factory ABS system.

Note: Follow Ring & Pinion break-in instructions on the Instructions tab.  Failure to do so will void warranty.

Ring and Pinion Break-In Procedure:

New 3rd members require a break-in period to prevent damage from overheating. Any overloading or over-heating during this period can cause the gear oil to break down resulting in ring and pinion failure.

  • After installation, drive lightly for 20-30 minutes and then allow the differential to cool for at least two hours
  • Avoid heavy throttle use during the first 500 miles
  • Do not tow a trailer during the first 500 miles
  • Change oil after 500 miles to remove any particles suspended in the oil

This may seem unnecessary but it is very easy to damage the differential by loading it before the gear set is completely run in. New ring and pinion gears create excess heat when they are new. This excess heat can damage the heat treatment of the gears.
