Samurai Differential Gears

samurai differentialFeeling a loss of power with your oversized tires? Well, correcting axle gear media/mudzuk.jpgite must to correct for performance losses caused by oversized tires. Notice how when you put those larger tires on, you lost 5th gear, and depending on the tire size, maybe 4th gear as well! The key is keeping your engine in it's optimum RPM range for the best performance. Larger tires change the effective gearing on your vehicle, so new ring and pinion gears make sense for any tire from 31" on up to correct for this.

Our ring and pinion gears have been installed in hundreds of Suzukis with no problems at all. Our Ring & Pinion gears are designed to RUN QUIET and LAST LONGER than any other aftermarket Suzuki gear sets. They are easy to set-up and manufactured to meet our highest standards. These gears are also made specifically for the Samurai so no funky install kits are necessary for a proper installation. The prices are awesome as well! Call us now for your gearing needs!

Also check out our Master Overhaul Installation kits. Not required for installation of your gears, but a darn good idea as long as you are already in there setting things up. Comes with new Pinion and Carrier bearings, new races for the bearings, new pinion nut, seal, a Locktight pack, gear marking compound, and a complete shim-pack. One kit is needed per differential.

4.57 gears provide a 23% overall reduction.
5.38 gears provide a 44% overall reduction.

Sidekick/Tracker Gear Shim for Samurai Differential

This is only needed for those looking to install Sidekick (front) gears into their front or rear Samurai differentials.

The Sidekick gear has a narrower profile than the Samurai gear which means you have to push the entire carrier further into the pinion for proper setup. Our laser cut shim is a drop in piece that allows for proper preload and backlash adjustment of the Sidekick gears.
