I have been in touch with MT who does have the gear sets. For my case which is possibly replacing my current 3.55 set, he highly recommends I first tear everything apart to inspect and replace just the items which are showing possible issues. But since I just pulled a muscle in my back, I'll need to heal up a bit before ripping into the turd's backside.

Thanks jorb and Tim for the links. Lots of good stuff to read before any of us go ripping into such a project.
