Guys check out my rear !!!!

not what you expected ???? sorry.
I gotta be honest I know nothing about diff's other than to maintain the fluid in them, which I try an do every 20-30k.
My question is what am I looking for inside, I did not see any abnormal ware or worn metal edges or broken peaces the magnet hardly had anything on it at all...but here are a few (OK) pics to see, does my rear look good ????

The 2nd and 3rd pics are out of focus and too large. Completely useless.

All of the gear faces show wear. How much? Hard to say from the pictures. If you didn't feel any sharp edges on the gear teeth, don't hear any noises, and there was nothing on the magnet, I wouldn't stress it too much.

they should show wear @ 120k......right ?

but no, no sharp edges and the magnet had some crap on it, i would say a build up of roughly 1/16" thick in some places on the sides but bare on the top.

thanks for the input.

Did you spin the drive shaft and check them all out? Mine had 109,000 on them when I took them out and only a couple little chips...88thpianoman is running them now so a few little chips must not hurt.
