Just remove the welded diff and use the one out of my transmission, stock 2 spider, for now for driveability? I dont plan on pushing it this winter as id like to be able to get thru more than 1500 miles before something else breaks. Is it easy to do and should i send out mine to get the 4 spider upgrade for better reliability? Sorry if im jumping around with questions but i just want to get her off jsb status.

You can, but driving a welded CD for daily duty is not terrible. It would suck for you to swap in a stock 2 spider diff and have it shit all over your built trans. Is that a chance you want to take?

Ive read quite a few people talking about a welded diff wearing out other components a lot faster

Just send out a non welded 2 spider and make it into a 4 and swap it out.

If you are making any considerable power, or launch the car, I would only recommend running a welded or 4-spider. I would do what Bastard said and send your 2-spider out, then when you get it back, swap them. The welded isn't horrible on the street, just have to change your driving style a bit. Try not to turn with the wheel full lock in parking lots, parallel parking, etc. If you take everything in a decent arc, it's not that bad. I notice it more in reverse. That said, I run a 4-spider because I daily the car, but if it was a weekend warrior or street race/strip car, I'd go welded.
