Anyone bought and installed the 5.38s yet?


Not yet.

I have just purchased a front locker two weeks ago from Kaiser and we are heading to America for a three week holiday in January so funds are a bit low at the moment.

Plan is once I come back to order the R&P's along with the adjustable pan hard rod and ship them over together.

In the meantime let us know how you go Hadtomer with yours if they are fitted up before Jan.

IM sorry to disappoint - but i dont think that i will have them fitted before january. If it was up to me, i would have fitted a front diff lock, 5/38 ring pinion, 31 inch tires and a 2 inch exhaust system. however - wife does not share my vision.


willing to part exchange wife (nice jewish girl, great condition) for a 1999 and onwards sporty. with 31 inch tires.


(p"s- id go for a lower panhard rod mount instead of a longer panhard rod. I started with a longer panhard rod- and found out very quickly that road holding suffered.it was only when i returned the panhard rod to its original height-by lowering the panhard rod mounting point - that road holding and general safety were greatly improved).

G'Day All,

Just thought you would all be interested in a couple of photos of the FABLED 5.38 Ring and Pinions. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" />

With a big thank you to Shorty Sporty <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> I recieved these from Korea a little while ago along with a adjustable Pan hard rod.

Any way without further ado here are the photos of the Ring and Pinions. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

Rear 5.38 Ring and Pinion
[Linked Image]
Front 5.38 Ring and Pinion

As you can see by the photos they appear to be of very good quality. Can't wait for the rest of the Sporty to come together so I can fit them up.

Cheers, Chris <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

Need a Spot
I tried the link and got a 404 error, no luck with the email address either. Has anyone else had any luck contacting these guys? I really could use those 5.38 gears.... Any one that can help me order some?
