I'm asking if it is damaged, it looks fine to me.
I ran it low//almost dry of oil. It made a loud clunking noise and smoke out of the fill hole.
So I'm pretty sure at the least, my bearings are toast.

It looks good to me. Don't see any metal shaving's or chunks and don't see any scrapes or dings anywhere. I would still possibly swap the bearings to be safe though.

OP -

Have you refilled the diff and run it up to see what happens?

If it's indeed damaged then you've nothing to lose.

If it's good to go then it's good to go.

I love your logic. No I haven't tried this yet.

I'm sure it wont work in my favour though.

I hear ya ... Its never fun to see smoke coming out from anywhere (except exhaust..). But i think at this stage you need to go with what you see.

I'd tried to look for any loose parts / cracks on some parts. If this is ok, I'd fill her up with oil and test drive and see if she drives ok ?

Spend the 30$ on fluid, fill it and see what happens. Why did it run dry? Was there a leak?

Ran dry due to axle seal leaks. (both sides).

I am taking it to a guy who is willing to put new bearings in for $600.00, then fill it with oil and go from there. Try to see if I will "LUCK" out or not.

I'll keep ya posted.

Problem fixed!!

Crown and pinion were fine.

They did all bearings/etc for rebuild...

$600/ for rebuild (labour + rebuild kit)
$80/ for machining (had to machine the yolk??)

Had to heat up some parts that were ALMOST welded together to remove them properly and not damage anything they could save.

$700~ after tax. No noise, no problems, 100% perfect!

Now that's what I call service. The shop I went to REPAIRED the problem. Where as the STEALERSHIP wanted to just replace all the parts and call it a day. I must say, I hope we don't loose the few repair shops we have left and become a "just replace it with another one, instead of fixing it" civilization.

The best part of it all is, I dropped it off first thing in the morning, they got me in asap, and had my vehicle repaired and ready for pick-up at 3pm the same day!! Talk about service!!

+REP for http://www.protracgear.ca/ (who performed the great service)
defenitely recommended for those in the Alberta/Canada region and needing driveline repairs.
