    But im not complaining,car has 133xxx miles on the orig diff and for the last 6 months or so the car has been putting
    down 434 rwhp.

    I laid into in first at about 20mph and at 6000 rpm on the tach it went bang ! before I made the shift to 2nd. Good thing
    was I was only a mile from home and wasnt at the tail of the dragon like I was a couple of weeks ago ! now that would
    of sucked..lol.

    I guess I will replace it with the latest part # and go ahead and get some stronger axles.

    When I looked under it oil was running out of it. It looked like the housing split in half. I will post pics of it when I get it out.
    Luckily it would still roll and I was able to pull it on home.
