    I know it's a bit noisyer than factory but that gear drive will give you a lot more durability than a chain. I'd probably keep it and live with the noise.
    Besides theres no better noise than rolling around in a hot rod with gear drive, it just sounds cool.

    Hey Grip, I don't think you can just replace the side gears. Those gears are cut in matched sets & I don't think new side gears will mate with used main gears. I think they would wear out too fast from non conformity. You should call the manufacturer & ask just to be sure.
