I am not a big fan of the hi pinion 9 inch...why? b/c it uses an 8.8 ring
gear instead of the actual 9 inch.

It seems that the hi pinion is not as strong as a 9 incher...I think Currie
will tell you this. That said, it will work for most folks wihtout any
problems. BUT, if you are going for the utmost in strength and durability I
would say stick with the std 9 inch. Realize that if you go with the 35 sp,
you will likely spend some extra $$ on your third member and locker.

Happy Trails,

Jack Garden

Subject: [EBML] Currie High Pinion

The majority of the repsonses I got on my pinion seal leak was that I should
have a shop do most or all the work.
THe gears are already toast. The shop told me they only had a year of life
left 5 years ago ( and they did look bad). It's also time to move away
from the 28 spline axles.
Anyone have experience with the Currie High pinion.
What I am thinking of is going with the CHP with a detriot and 35 spline
axles. The 35s only appear to be 10$ more and you need a case that takes
bigger bearings anyhow. I think I would have a very hard time taking out
the 35 spline axles with my 5.0.

In the long run I hope to add a klunev/marlin crawler, I was thinking the
3.5 inches of clearence, and straighter driveshaft would be helpful too.

JUst in case.... anyone ever break 31 spline curries or mosers?
