So you guys CAN rebuild rear diffs? How much labor (hours) are we talking just to shim it properly so it quiets down?

about 4 hours labor + bearings and shims. We don't really want to do this unless you're a big baller like Paul and buy nice diffs though. You can buy another junkyard diff for $300 bucks so it's probably not worth the money.

Alex, The problem with the diff. in the junkyards is they all have 80-120K miles on them and they need to be rebuilt. I am on my third and it needs to be rebuilt/re-shimmed too. So, I see an opportunity to teach (Prof. Bill in front of the class) and or provide services to the Galant community. May I suggest Prof. Bill provide some evening/weekend adult education to a youthful group who could bring notebooks, cameras and even a few Diffs to work on? Of course, I am sure there would be some fee to join the class, that would be expected. Each student could bring his own lab materials; seals, bearings, shims and a victim to work on. I know there are several willing students in the area who would sign up for the tutorial.

Oh you just know that some brown-noser would ruin it by bringing a case of microbrew for the teacher .

One of my buddies attached this to one of my autocad papers once while I went on break, I caught it just before I handed it to my hard nosed professors, mainly because the whole back of the class was about to piss there pants as I walked to the front of the room with the disk. Enjoy Harry

We had kits on hand so we didn't need to buy all of those. It's moot now anyway because we had to take it apart again.

Here are Paul's arms, sandblasted and pressed with new bushings from Oztek and then some new ball joints.

Cy, buy another 4 bolt for cryin out loud. The shaft will need to be rebalanced. Try South Shore Bearing in Quincy for that. Hire some broke DSM'er to do your B shafts. That's the worst job ever in my book.

[bitching] Cryin out loud, that's exactly what it's doing. I try to fool myself into thinking I've got a dogbox When I give rides, people say "WTF kind of piece of crap am I riding in? It sounds like it's about to fall apart." Freaking pillow mounts are nice and noisy too. I don't like this car right now. [/bitching]

Yes, that looks very familiar. I have been there and done that, both front and back, and I couldn't agree more, it is a pain to do. Definitely on the same level, as the BS removal as discussed above.
