Re: Diff Identification

I have found a dealer who has 3 diffs all 3.9:1 out of the axles
Apart from physical damage to teeth what should I look for ?

The poly spring seats will not do anything untoward as regards a harsh ride. All they do is locate the axle. Personally I would have left the poly spring seats in place.
Re fitted the poly spring seats and you were right they are fine
Much easier to fit and tighten also as the do not compress

Here's where I bought my 3.9 CWP. (246.46€).
The tolerances were not the best (Made in Turkey) and this company is distributing them all over.

Re: Limited Slip Diff

A.Lawrence, I have just caught that unicorn! There is an apparently good 3.9 diff for sale not too far from me. 399€ o.n.o. If you are interested and cover the postage costs I could get it for you. I don't know what a diff weighs but I would hazard a guess at 10kg. Postage to UK from Germany up to ...

Limited Slip Diff

Trying to find a rebuilt 3.9:1 is like trying to find a unicorn
Is swapping to an LSD a viable option ?

Re: Diff Identification

I cant see that in the manual.
If you were relacing the seal you would need to removed this nut and refit
I cant imagine you would need to relpace a crush washer every time you change a seal but I will read again

Re: Diff Identification

I have put the diff flange back on the original diff and tightened the nut to 140ftlbs however the diff is now very tight. It will turn but it does take some effort. It certainly doest spin if you put some rotation in from the flange If I slacken the nut off it will spin but it is nowhere near tight...
