Lighten Gear Service
Strange Engineering offers a Lighten Gear Service at the time of purchase. This service will Reduce rotating weight with only a minimal loss of strength. This procedure removes .75 to 1.5 pounds depending on the ring gear.
When you reduce mass it will increase deflection in the ring gear. The amount of impact it will have on your gear life will depend on your use. Each ring gear is machined with a generous radius and in most cases, you will not likely see a reduction in service life in the vast majority of applications.
This is a popular modification to the Ford 9 in Gears as well as our Ford 8.8 inch Gears. Our Lighten Gear Service in combination with other weight reductions in rotating and non-rotating weight on your vehicle will eventually have a significant impact on your Et’s.
