EXPLODING DIFFERENTIAL

  1. The way I drive, this was gonna happen sooner or later. I floored it off the line as usual and I heard the LOUDEST bang and grinding. I immedeatly knew it was my differential.

    But today I was not prepared for the amount of damage, I need a new ring, pinion, and differential.

    I think that I'm gonna get 4.10:1 gears to replace the 3.55:1 ones. And for the differential, a Zexel Torsen differential because it is one the best ones out there. Instead of conventional ring gears, it uses worm gears.

  4. It was a coincidence too that a Car Craft issue came out at exactly the same time my diff breaking about replacing the exact parts on the same 8.8" ford diff as mine.
