As you may recall from my SAD EASTER WEEKEND, I was waitng on the inspector for my warranty.MONDAY came,and he showed, I was surprised that he showed up at 9am, long story short it was approved and by lunch time I was switching my gears to the new case. The operation is very simple. The hardest task was removing the race & spacer ring. The new case only comes with the pressed in bushing. Like I said before I'm a damn good mechanic,and very picky, I inspected every tooth,bearing,gear & housing no damage could be found. After I got off work at 5:30pm I headed to TRIAD MOTORSPORTS where I purchased my BABY & warranty from, and got to work. I finished the install. on the diff about 8:30, but by this time it had started to rain. So I took her for a 30min. spin, I must say I was very pleased but yet not satisfied. Tuesday was very sunny and dry,boy was I happy. 5:30 took forever to come, but when it did I went to test my rear. After 4 long hours of hard driving & dogging my rear,I'ma say it's straight especially with no whine. Thanx GUYs for the feedback and concern (Scatillac).

im pretty sure you should of babied it for at least the first 100-500 miles.. im no expert but it just seams like common sense for anything on the drivetrain to require a break-in period + these diffs are already under built as it is,

i got my replaced 2 weeks ago and am still babying it around but then again im out of warranty so i have a different mind set

Common sense is, there was nothing to break in I used my old guts & put them in a new case. Now had it been a whole BRAND NEW diff yeah i would haved babied the [email protected]# out of it. I will keep you guys updated after I put some more miles on her. I suppose to go to ASHEVILLE NC, this weekend that should be fun, curvey mountain roads!!:eek:
