has anyone instaled their own ring and pinion in their toyota? its an 89 2wd p/u and the rear end is a 7.5, it is for off road use only so it does it have to perfect or is it something that i can do on my own with a good set of calipers? also the gear ratio is 5.29 with 33's if that matters

I would have someone do it for you, unless you have a lot of experience. Off-road use or not, the ring and pinion still do the same thing and can wear and break teeth off if it is not right. We used a 7.5 Toyota rear end out of an 81 2wd with a lock right in it for about 2 and a half years racing. The lock right finally let go at Laughlin one year and we made a lincoln locker out of it to race on Sunday and replaced it with a Ford 9". The Toyota rear end held up like a champ though. We beat the hell out of it with no bracing on it. I should mention that we had 4.56 gearing in it. With the 5.29s, your pinion gear may be pretty weak.

if you install it your self, im pretty sure that you have to use a complicated set of spaceres to get the ring and pinion to line up perfectly, other wise the teeth will hit in the wrong spot and break prematurly. but all i know is that the spaceres are a pain, every little thousants of an inch counts. hope this gave you a little more info on it.

sand is for people who lack the skills navigate objects

Have a shop do it. Yeah its money($207 last week) but you only have to pay once.

I just did 488s with 33s on my 94 and a Lock Right and its good.
