So with the dana 35 swap for my bronco 2, what happens if the gears dont match my rear diff. i think all the ones i can find are 356s or somethin and i got 410s . Also does the d35 bolt right up, including driveshaft / yolk all that?

bolts rite in, might have to get a u-joint, but you need to match gears

bolts right in, swap your radius arms thou. the 28 arms have a much better shock mount. and you need to get your drive shaft shortened about an inch or so.

Not necessarily......... I ran 355 in the front and 411 in the rear in my '85 Bronco full size while I was waiting to get 411 for the front.
Obviously I did not run it in 4x4 on the road but in the dirt and mud it was just fine.
I did not break anything as the front is pulling faster than the back

Not so good if ya got the gears the other way around though....... then the back is pushing the front and steering sucks.

Yes it is not a good idea to run mismatched gears but for a while it is not the end of world either.


and.......... at that time I only used 4 wheel drive when I reaaaaaly needed it

imho :D

A 4x4 ranger with a 2.3L newer then 1990 SHOULD have 4.10s and a Dana35
