Finally got rid of diff whine!!
Well after putting up with a whining diff for the past 6 months, last friday, with the help of a mate, we changed the diff. Took out the old 2.77, and replaced it with a 3.08. Ended up only taking us about an hour, and that was with a fair bit of wasted time thrown in talking BS. What a difference it has made. The car now has more pickup (not a huge amout, but I can notice it), and NO DIFF WHINE!!!!! Its like driving a difference car!. Plus as a bonus, the diff I got had really meaty discs, and new PBR pads!!!
Sort of related, I asked my mate (who is a mechanic) how much he would charge to fit a diff (assuming someone supplies their own) and he said, MAXIMUM, $200, including bleeding the brakes.
This evening, im going through all the manual conversion parts with the guy thats helping me fit it, to make sure that we arent missing anything, and then Saturday, 5 speed Fairlane!!!!!
