So even though I've been trying to aviod it I pulled the trans in about an hour last night.

I'm just gonna take the front diff down to it's lowest intial Tq and it's lowest lock up. If I'm spinning an inside wheel after I can come back up. If it still understeers it's back to the helical.

I don't really want to go back to helical because the car no longer ratchets up and bucks. Seems to be non-existent with the clutch front.

We'll see this weekend at the sopac divisional.

Well if whales could pasturize milk I'd take that into consideration. But they can't so I don't. I can't stand how illogical you are sometimes. It's perfectly clear that grasshopper + bumblee = nebula

Simple math states that you're wrong.

I say go back to the healical anyway, it shouldn't buck anymore because you don't have 11billion pound springs and the car wont push like a pig. So

Well the car seems to be back to *normal*. As in it's tail happy and it keeps popping intercooler hoses.

Let me down my first 2 runs today (hose pop)... Annoying but other than that it seems happier. Still trying to completely evaluate the diff thing as I only really got one run in it.

Meh I'll see what it's like tomorrow.

Good to hear! I think you might want to replace those IC hoses with some fresh stuff. Maybe make some knurling marks around the barb for the hose to bite into a bit better? Safety wire? Just thinkin out loud!

Have fun anyway!

Jay those hoses have needed to be hard lined since the first time I drove it.

Look familiar? How hard is it to do this myself? I know you gave me a quick walk through when I bought this thing, but that was months ago.

Wouldn't be that hard. I guess. Only thing is if that's one of mine you're gonna have a hard time finding 02/03 mainshafts. Need to convert to 04+ around $800 last time I looked for everything (new). You can probably find a used (decent) box for $5-8. Just let me know. Pm me I'll send my phone #

There is another option - I have an 07 tranny/rear diff with bad synchros. Would it be better to fix that one and throw the front diff in there?

It would for sure be cheaper and a bit stonger. It's just the gearing that
would bum me out, personally. Storm might know if you can just change the tail sections to convert it to work with the 3:90 rear.

Shouldn't be any issue with swapping the transfer section as a whole, onto the other box to keep the 3.90 rear end.
