12 bolt rebuild

i currently have a 12 bolt rear end in my chevelle. I have the eaton series 3 carrier and a set of 4.11 gears along with a new set of axles and bearings also. This will be my first time rebuilding a rear end, and would like to know if any of you guys got tips/tricks to make my life easier rebuilding this.

thanks

I was going to rebuild the 12 bolt on my blazer but decided on having Hoopers Rearend in Sun Valley, Ca., do the work since they only charged $100 for setup. You have to put the right shims in and set it up perfect otherwise you get vibration and wasted your money and time.

yes. I bought the ring and pinion and the bearing kit from an off road center and then took the whole axle to the rear end shop and it was $100 setup. They charged me $35 extra for new outer bearings. That was it. They said it would have been a $100 more if they had to take the axle out of my blazer.

Are the gears made for a 3-series carrier?

yea, the gears are for a 3 series carrier. if i can remember i think they were an extra 50 buckx for a 3 series. what is the difference between a 3 series 4.11 and a 4 series 4.11 ring and pinion?

The 3-series ring gear is thicker, because the mounting flange on the 3-series carrier is farther to the left.
