I really wish I kept my old diff now, but i gave it a way. :mad:
The condition of the pins is pretty crap I think, well at least the passengers side is. I can't get the bottom pin out, can't push or pull it, and its not sticking out far enough to put the bolt on.
I got the diff for only $25 out of an old XF gl. I have a feeling its about to go again, cause it has some freeplay in it, from reversing and then going straight it sometimes clunks. And its a manual.
Can you weld the sleeves onto the housing, or is this a big no no?? cause i think this will solve most of my problems.
As for the freeplay you can move the passengers caliper with a little force, but It wont fall off.
