    OK, I got some thread lock, I got the govloc welded up and I'm getting ready to mount up the ring gear. What do I torque the ring gear bolts too? Is there a different (longer) set of bolts for the thick gears? Otherwise I'm going to use the bolts that come out.

    80ft lbs, tighten like an 8 lug wheel. i think the bolts shouldn't need to be any longer, seeing as "thick gears" are thicker the other way, as in the have a smaller hole in them, to compensate for the smaller diff case, so the bolts won't be different. make sure you got your lock washers on there.
