The ring and pinion gears are machined using highly advanced power-dry cutting and grinding that result in exacting tooth profiles and ideal gear mesh—so precise, in fact, that the ring and pinion gears do not require pairing. These sophisticated processes render perfectly matched gearing to ensure more efficient power transmission, longer durability, quiet axle operation and enhanced driver comfort.
