Cleaning the LSD

February 28, 2009

So, yeah… I didn’t press in the side bearings on the lsd completely. They pressed in by themselves, with the diff in the car, the lsd was moving side-to-side inside the 3rd member (it had about .01″ backlash. factory spec is .007″).  To make the story short, I had a fuck load metal shavings all over everything from the ring and pinion gear (the gear oil looked like metallic paint with sparkles). Here are some pictures of the “clean up”.
