Nice work though, and it's held up so it must be half decent.
He mentioned mothballing the front driveshaft if he had to throw the 35 back in.

Your limited slip differential sucks.

I changed out my front axle gearing as well to a matching 3.73 of course. Yes, there is no debate that they need to match.

I thought as much. Didn't think it would work otherwise.

Thanks Opihi
