someone in colorado figured it out, with the 4.11, but he seems pretty tight lipped about it.

I guess someone in Austrailia did it. There was a whole thread about 4.44 in a 5spd d/r. Now the forums are gone though :(

Is that for front & rear? Or just for the front? Any one know what the US$-to-CDN$ rate is?

I was under the impression that the 4.11 gears will fit with a small amount of work, but the 4.44's won't. just a heads up.

4.11's would be FINE, just fine.
Matt-
Well.... If that price is for front & rear, then I'm thinking around $550 for a front R&P set. I could swing it in the not so distant future:brow: and convert to an R180 out back with 4.11's in it. BUT....if that price is for just the front:eek::eek::eek: I'll have to keep serching for a cheeper way to do it.
I want to put one of the Phantom Grip LSD's and 4.11's up front, and an R180 with solid stubs, welded diff. and 4.11's in the rear. That's the ideal set up IMO for what I want to do with the car.

Not gone, just in the process of getting a new web supplier, old one went belly-up recently, so ausubaru/backyard boys should be back real soon, or so the note they have posted sez.

I had bought a set of 4.44 gears for a 5 speed dual range tranny. Well he stole my money no parts yet and yes i email him but after a while he quite answering me. Just took my money and ran, do i think he is a nice guy hell NO. Thats my dealings with him. Thanks Jerry

Hey Guys This is Jerry, thats what i though about Brett BUT i got screwed by him no other way to put it or say it. He stole my money, if he was a good guy he would have sent the gears or sent me my money back. I also got an email from his neighbor and she didn't have any thing good to say about him and she lives next door to him. All i am saying is becarefull you might have the same thing happen to you. I don't care what anybody has to say about him, he screwed me ans thats the bottom line. Thanks Jerry

By "make them fit" I'm gessing that these are not made for the EA82 5spd D/R. What ARE they for, and how do U know U can make them work?

Still no responce over @ Auzbaru (AKA: BYB) so I'm still DESPERATLY seeking info on this.

the terminology "off topic"/"on topic" is subjective. you don't care about his particular situation but it was in reference to a supplier of the gears you speak of so it could be useful to others. consider it a free bump, you'll need it on a custom job like this, keep the thread up there awhile.

I know that some one here got a trany (RX D/R I think) from here in Medford from a shop called DHM. I was told that it was a 4.11:1 R&P, any truth to that? Would THAT R&P set fit into a regular 5spd D/R?

They tranny case doesn't have clearnce fdr them but I'm going to try and find away around that. I'm not sure it will work but it does look promising, at the worst I've torn apart a perfectly good d/r trannie and lose about $500 reselling the gears.
Almost stock gearing with 29's would rule!
Most 4.44 users are installing them in wrx's for tighter shifts AFAIK
