diff repairs

Hi

Has anyone had their diff reconditioned. My EFXR8 has done the pinion bearing I have just been told which explains the noise. I have been told around a $1000 to fix. Does anyone recommend a diff place and know if there is any mods which can be done to diff to improve performance or strength.

Thanks
Tim

Diff Trans 19 Brunker Rd Greenacre..Ph 9708-3400..
Go 3:7 for performance/economy... imo...

Yes the pinion bearing seems to be the weak link maybe there is a stronger bearing???..If the bearing is shot and you got it soon enough it may only need bearings etc..But that'll be a budget rebuild....

Thanks ebxr8240,

I will call tommorrow.

Yes- pinion bearing I have been told is weak point. They replace with bigger, stronger one. I figure if I am doing a rebuild I may as well go performance and strength to cover any further mods and damage they may cause.

Sounds like its the season for it.

I just changed my pinion bearing, it took me about three hours.

With a bit of effort its not to bad a job.

I have a Max Ellerys Workshop manual, which told me exactly how to go about it, even the old gregorys isnt to bad for this job.
