Well i had to remove the diff from the car because i snapped a CV stub off :banghead: well because I have the diff out is there any upgrades I can/should do to it before it goes back in?


I'm going to order gforce axles tomorrow but I was also thinking of a TCperformance Diff girdle

Perhaps a new poly bushing for the front mount (if you don't have one already). It'll get rid of the diff specific clunk that will eventually happen when the OEM bushing disintegrates over time.

I'd take one step at a time. Do the axles first, then decide. If you've got a 3rd or 4th Gen diff, you'll probably be okay just with the axles.

I have a 3rd gen So I hope its strong enough...I'll be looking it over for any cracks on the outside and the inside of the case. I'm also going to replace the axle seals. one got destroyed with the axle and the other one is dented kind of hard. And then give the case a good once over with some black paint just to make it sexy lol

Where would I have to take the car? (from Houston, Texas area) How long would installation take?
We have a dealer just outside Fort Worth, SNL Performance that can do the install or you can bring it up here.
Installation takes a couple days.

Thanks
Chris

You thinking about the diff darkman? I think its about time for you to make another trip up north and pay us Dallas Vs a visit.

SNL is a good shop...they will do a great job.
