Bro - depending on your budget and what type of power you want to run through the rear differential, there are options out there. Sometimes I wish mine blew up so I have a reason the change the gear ratio There's a lot of stock replacement options there and maybe that works for you.
Each unit is equipped with new Timken bearings, races and seals. In addition, you receive a new positraction clutch pack. This differential features a new ring and pinion. A US$300.00 core deposit will be added to the price of the differential. The core deposit will be refunded upon receipt and...
It's the Canadian Vendor but I don't know any history on these units. Also - I bet if we stick our feelers out someone would have a used one in good shape?
Im all about feelers now! The crate engine and custom built 700r4 ate up a huge chunk pf my budget! Lol the case is good. All the bearings are good. Even the seals were good. Just the carrier and a broken clutch plate.
Just cant put all this work in to the build, just to put a semi repaired carrier back in!
Everything i have found so far is ridiculously overpriced
Big day! New hd offest trailing arms, hubs, brakes, stainless e brake hardware, stainless brake lines, stainless shim kit, adjustable strut rods and new pivot bolts and a whole bunch more!
Dental floss, tied to the brake shoe pin, fed through all the parts worked nicely for a very tricky install. Tied up above to keep tension on it, freed up my hands to install the springs using 2 dental picks. Took 2 minutes per hub! The spring tool is great, but this was so much better!
Anti sieze coated everything and heavy greased. No corrosion coming on this one!
For initial alignment, i set everything to center in the pocket, shimmed evenly and ill build from there. The alignment later on will solve any issues.
Vansteel products, thus far have been outstanding for fit and quality. Not to mention, their customer support is super fast and very helpful. I highly reccomend!
My build so far has been supplied by Western Corvette put of Calgary, Corvette Depot in ontario and Vansteel.
Next up is the front hubs and a pile parts to clean and paint!
Diffs internals are fine. I kept it as a “bolt in and go” spare diff. Zero issues I’m aware of. Might be worthwhile to swap the axel stub bearings and seals just because it’s easy to swap and it’s not in the car. Me, personally, I’d run it as is (with an oil change).
