I stand corrected ... did they come from an overseas application, that crosses to the US m205? I only ask because, as I said, I would have been 99% certain (before today) that there was no USDM m205 application that came factory equipped with 3.54 gears - IE: this is the first I'm hearing about this availability.The M205 gears are not aftermarket, they are OEM.
So th R180 with 3.54 gears should be the right ones for my 2005 Xterra s 4x4 manual trans. with CC35 on drivers door? If so how much would it cost for the entire carrier and shipping. Because I don't know if I had just the gears if there is any special tooling needed for reassembling everything with new bearings.I have an R180 with 3.54 gears in it, but the entire carrier is still together.
The M205 gears are not aftermarket, they are OEM. They are brand new and never driven a mile.
The M226 gears saw about a 90,000 miles of street use.
I do apologize to cjs83. I was so busy with my wedding, work, and my sick dog I dropped the ball.
