9 inch diff getting reco'd

Hi there guys my 9 inch diff in my XB is getting reco'd while i go overseas for 2 weeks, it is a 28 spline 2.75 diff i think there is a possibility it is LSD, but not 100%.

I have decided to put 3.5's in it and the centre is getting freshend up and new axle bearings also.

The engine i will be putting in will be producing probably 450 -500 hp at a later date so i want the diff to cope, do any of you's have any pointers as to what i should do to the 9 inch in this situation?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as i would like to do the rebuild once and for all.

Re: 9 inch diff getting reco'd

Just the usual things mines still as per factory spec. Usual things being bearings, clutches etc. It'll be fine.

My centre cost me $700 including parts to reco from 3.00->4.11. Thats everything brand new.

If you are going to tighten up the LSD a steel hat is not a bad idea or else you can now get a nodular iron hemisphere which is a lot stronger than the stock grey iron.

It's possible provided you have the traction and quick/smooth gear changes.
