I'm kind of between a rock and a hard place, and the guy that sent me the ring...well...is a great guy and I don't want to volunteer him for anything.

I think it works quite well though. Might try to PM him.

Yea, its no secret. Basically, its a reinforcement ring that ties the pinion bolts together and keeps the nose of the diff from splitting. Falls in with hoop stress, Mohr's circle and all of that ME stuff that I forget right now. It is high strength steel and just an added measure of safety. (cheap I might add)

Funny, after I pulled the !Cags before my dealer visit, I really took a look at the rubber mounts of our driveshaft. I really think a version of the DiffRing could be used to tie together the mounting bolts of the shaft and the tailshaft/diff to make the shaft solid mounted. I doubt a simple plate would be strong enough to withstand the force...but it got me thinking. There is a way to tie the tailshaft-driveshaft-diff together and remove the rubber "squish" of the mounts....it's just gonna take a bit more thought.

Id you look at the way that BMR (I think) has tied up the vette rear with reinforcement plates, its the same Idea. It just adds to the strength of the existing pinion flange, which is aluminum.
