I have been collecting parts for a SAS the last year. My original plan was to SAS my EX this spring and wheel all summer but with some family stuff prior to COVID-19 my wife and I decided to hold off until we can purchase another vehicle, hopefully soon. But in the mean time I want to get started on regearing my axles. this is my first time and I am wanting to try myself for the learning experience, so forgive my ignorance.

I have a HP 44 and 9in combo from a 79 F150 and have been looking a various R&P brand options. I have a line up on some Yukon gears for a decent price, but was just looking at Rock Auto and they have Ring and Pinion options for around $100 less. Should I skip on the Yukon set and go for the Richmond Excel or another brand from Rock Auto? Is Yukon as good as they are marketed?

The distributor I was going to purchase from also quoted me a minimal kit for the swap but I was hoping to do a more in-depth rebuild, just so I can have some peace of mind. Rock Auto has diff rebuild kits that are fairly priced from US Standard gear. Will these diff rebuild kits be compatible with the Yukon R&P?

Any advice would help.

Sorry for the delay, but yes you can use any rebuild kit with any gear set. Both Richmond and Yukon make good gears.
