Howdy,

I picked up a LSD (on the cheap) to replace my open diff (nothing wrong with it other than giving me drift practice in the rain)

Anything other than scraping the external crud off and giving it a nice freshen fill of oil should I do before R&Ring the old one?

Is it worth bothering to open it up fully to check out the ring gear for wear or just look for metallic bits in the gear lube.

Anything else to check on the new one to devine any problems that may crop up with it...

The guy said that when the car still ran that the diff didnt make any noise, and it was an automatic so it probably had an ok life.

Thanks,
Sten

Before installing the rear-end on the car, replace the three outer oil seals. Two oil seals on the axle shafts, one each side, and the input shaft oil seal. If the diff. has been sitting for an extended period of time these seals may have become a little dry.
Hmm. I've looked in the TSRM and it talks quite a bit about how taking off the front nut will require you to re-adjust the pre-load on the diff... How hard is this? I dont want to get into a full up rebuild just to change one seal that may not leak anyhow.

There's some sort of a crush sleve that it says will need replacing if I can't get the preload correct. It's not clear if I would have to pull the bearing if that needs changing.

Beer. The fresh maker.
You've got that right.

Thanks,
Sten
