Sound of silence (Almost)

We put the spare diff centre and axles (with new bearings) in the EH today.
The old centre had been noisy for a long time, but was getting much worse.
It was behaving like an LSD and spinning both back wheels, until it made a loud clunk at a khanacross a couple of weeks ago and then only spun one wheel (like it should).
There were lots of machhead and smaller chunks of metal in the axle tubes and the bottom of housing centre when we pulled the axles out.
The gears all looked great with very even wear and the carrier bearings looked OK, so I think the pinion gear might have gone.
All we can hear now on the road is induction noise and exhaust popping when you back off.
All good.
Nathan has 3.45 LSD from an XR6 that might get shortened and fitted one day.

I always broke axles. They would twist off about an inch from the end. That's why I put a 9" in. Never had a problem after that.

My brother had a 202 HQ ute. A mate had a 202 HQ van. Another had a 202 HQ sedan.
They were all breaking axles until they put V8 rear ends in.
New axles were $100 back then. The wreckers knew all the young blokes broke 6cyl axles and charged $95 for used axles. A V8 rear end was $120 and solved the problem in a HQ.
