i have stock gears in my truck right now and i want to replace them with 5.29's. do i have to replace the differential gears and the gears in the front? or do i just have to do the differential?

If you mean do you have to change the gears in front and back the answer is yes. If they are different you will break stuff. What size tires are you planning to run?? Cuz 5.29's are really low if you are running anything less than 38's.

5.29s will return you close to stock on 35 inch tires. Your gears are inside the third member, which bolts to the differential.

Thanx Pete, I thought that 5.29's were way overkill for 35's. I guessed wrong.
