Apparently the lugs ripped up the brake shoes, master cylinder, springs, and the handbrake cables. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

Go with a stock two spider open diff and semi-easy starts, or go IRS and forget about it!


I'm gathering that the only problem with a super diff is that the holes in the sides for splash lube are not big enough?

You wouldn't think that having 4 spider gears would cause any problem...The only time those things spin is when you go around a corner.

Yeah It's the fact that with four spider gears, the (super)diff is an inclosed unit, and once centrifugal force spins the fluid out, it has a tough time getting back in to the fulcrums. I've seen where guys have increased the size and number of oiling holes in super diffs. You'd be able to pull it off with that fancy milling machine Franz!

I did! Costly and dumb mistake on my part though. I ](*,) ](*,)

I was thinking about just biting the bullet and doing that swap to discs and Fuchs, but I can't afford it right now and don't want to halfway do it or spend money I don't really have. =; =;

But it's definitely still on my list to do. I'll get there eventually [-o< [-o< [-o<
