Recieved the syncro ring from my local dealer after two weeks. Now the case slipped together nicely and shifting and everything was as it should be.
Have been driving with the 87% low/17% high reduction now for a couple of weeks and this kit goes well with my 235's. Much more smooth and flexible thru the grears at normal driving. It is a bit high rpm for highway use but not too bad.
First trip was going south for a 8 hour drive with a 600kg trailer. Just as well to get used to the abuse right away
There is a lot of gear noise when the gears are new but it got much better thru the first 1000km. Still whines a lot though so if you do not need the lower gearing in the high range i would considering not to fit it and settle with the 70% reduction in the low range. With my experience now i am not sure i would fit the high range again if i knew the noise would be like this.
I kept the original gears of course so i might remove the high range reduction some time in the future if i don't get used to the noise.
It think that at that price the gears should have been ground and polished for less noise. I still would pay more if i knew they had less noise.
Hoping it will get a bit better after an oil change.

Annual meet coming up so i have te get the car ready:
- check the brakes
- check for play in the front
- change engine oil
- change transfer gear oil
- mount my CB radio, under car camera, led bar and other stuff if there is time..

Done:
Brakes checked. slight oil residue in the rear drums so I will have to change the seals. just cleaned for now.
Checked front end for play, found nothing. Will have to get the wheels balanced.
Transfer oil change done. Oil did not look too bad but some grey matter from the new gear wheels.
CB mounted and antenna adjusted and checked.

The meet was postponed due to forest fire hazard so I got until September now..
