Well it started as a whine and got worse and worse. I was decelerating off the highway when it started clunking so I clutched in and right before I stopped it took a shit. The pinion got stuck in the ring and got cockeyed, which punched a hole in the case.
The forums say that the pinion wears out and causes huge tolerances between it and the ring(common for peasant 6" 1.6 diffs). I could actually feel a click when I started moving sometimes

This pic also represents my mood at the time

Mood, confused, I didn't know what to do, I had lost my bearings, with no way to move forward.

Diff plans? 1.8 torsion? 2way?

well I'm off to boot camp in 2 months, so I'm just doing another open for now, unless I can find a vlsd for a steal
Once i have some dependable income i'll upgrade to a torsen. I'll have to because turbo power will eat through a 1.6 vlsd :twisted:

It'll eat a torsion too, welded or 2way for turbo.

Yeah I'm really worried about how long my 1.6 rear end is going to last to the abuse.
