    if i change my carrier bearings, will the gears need to be set up again? or can i just mark the adjusting sleeves, remove the carrier, install the new bearings, install the carrier, and tighten the adjusting sleeves to where they originaly were?

    thanks

    AIRBORNE!!

    You do not have to set up the gears again, because you are not touching the pinion depth/preload or anything, but after you install the new bearings you still want to use some marking compound to check the wear pattern and adjust if necessary, the adjusting sleeves are what control the side to side movment of the ring gear in relation to the pinion. someone correct me if I'm wrong please, but I believe this is the case.
