    If they do not have the hardened diffs wait to get a set online. For drive shafts . MIP and Junfac are some of the best.

    Also when installing the new gears . it may be necessary to do a bit of shimming to get a perfect gear mesh. Between the ring and pinion inside the axle. A better mesh will make the gears last .

    15 Yeats is awesome. I did 8 years if no alcohol . even though it's over now I get it. And I'm lucky enough to be responsible now. As I don't care to get drunk not even tipsy. .. And know I can let it go again. I replaced the brew with coffee..still a brew. Lol I have friends that have kicked way worse addictions. And others That I do not accoaite with because of their bad addiction. U can always pm me if u need to chat.

    You are welcome.
    .
    I can say for me to quit the first time . it took me 3 years to decide u wanted too. Then I quit cold Turkey. And told no one because I did not know if I could do it. But I did . and it felt good when my uncle thought I was in his wine . two months into quiting. For me to hand him a cup if coffee . he was surprised and helped me get my drivers license back.
