What parts? I went through one and the bearings were fine, so it was a matter of seals from the dealer. If you are trying to rebuild a burnt viscous diff, you are SOL. If it is a roasted R180, the dealer shouldbe able to get the parts, or Rallispec can get them.

I am rebuilding an r160 with busted pinion gear and the gear at the end of the main shaft.

with the prices the dealer is going to charge you, you might as well get an aftermarket lsd...or just grab a used one here for $100

junk yard or dealer. Yet expect $400 at the dealer. Good luck at the junk yard as they are not common to find.

I have a r160 with a blown diff. Looking to get rid of it. May also need a bearing or two.

So rebuilding is pointless?

Replacing a broken pinion gear is kinda pointless. Way too many R160's to be had cheaply to justify the cost of a new ring/pinion and then the labor to properly set it up.

Keep the case, bearings and shims or anything else that may still be good.....but pitch the broken pinion and ring gear.

Depends what you are doing with it. If it's just a daily driver, find a used one and swap it. Much easier and cheaper. If you are racing, give a shout as we have some treatments that will really make it last longer.

If you can't find parts, you can't rebuild it. Step 1 is the EASY part and you can't do that?

I've got one in a 3.545:1 ratio I'll sell you for probably less than the cost of the parts you would need.

Everything but the actual diff. Ring and pinion are in good shape.
