That's not where water gets in the different. Water goes in the axle tubes and easily makes it past the inner axle seals because its much thinner than gear oil.

Makes sense to me...4.5" spring plus .75" spacer =5.25"

On topic...contemplated from long arms and triangulated 8.8

Looked under my zj to find drive line vibration. I think I found it here. Can this end be rebuilt? Its the TC end to the front DS.

This is why we are always screaming that tow hooks need brackets. The uniframe is paper without them.

I sincerely hope nobody was injured.
