During my weekly inspection I found the front seal on the rear diff leaking. I knew it was just a matter of time.
The KARS bolts for the pinion support were also extremely loose.
I wanted to get the V into the 11's and was very close (2 100ths of a sec away). I pass the torch to someone else. I will resume when the diffs in development become available. I will miss the trips down the 1/4 mile. :(

Now you know how it's holding up

The glass half-full side of your story is at least you caught the problem before it festered too much. Do you have an 06 rear or modded 05?

My front seal is leaking too...but your dealer WILL replace it. I have a diff on the shelf that is usable - but not perfect (had some gear chatter when removed, was disassembled by a vendor for inspection and ideas to improve and reassembled).

Go for the 11's. A USABLE back up diff is here, and a UPS or FedEx tag away.

Just resnug the nuts, and it will be good

Mine have loosened up once or twice depending on My driving habits. You can always double nut them too.

A leaking seal won't cause trouble, unless you run it dry

Probably Tristate on Sat, if the weather holds up, looks like rain on Fri.

I'll have to find TriState on a map - it's been about 30 years since I've been there:eek:
