I ask, cuz wifey wants a new vehicle, and she doesn't wanna have to think about putting it into 4x4 when the conditions need it, but if I'm buying a...

    One for the techies

    Expect the N and W which according online sources that I found are something like 3.28 first. But what you are telling me is that there never was a .63 for the A4. As I begin to think about I may have been looking at too many trans ratios, I may confused the A4 for an AOD(4R70W has a .63 OD I...

    One for the techies

    Ok sports fans, what are the gear ratios for the A4LD and it's descendants(4R, 5R-including the N,S,W)? I've tried googling it but I come up with conflicting info.

    I too am not too far from Golden, and would be interested in how this turned out. I have 1 junk A4, and another that is in use, and want to build a hybrid for my daily driver. I'm not into explorers, but what you are doing can help me a lot.

    How to: My A4LD Rebuild Diary - Pt 4 - Postscript

    What difference if any is there between the 4.0L A4 case, and the 2.9L/2.3T A4 cases? I have several of these laying around, and need internals.
