    Question Are These In Good Condition???

    Here is a pic of the inside of a diff I am looking at buying and I'd like to know if it appears to be in good shape?

    Picture doesn't show the faces of the ring gear very clearly, but it doesn't look to be galled. Spider gears have some wear but that isn't the most important part.

    Looks pretty good to me...

    The picture of the gears is a little fuzzy , but I would go for the set , I think they look good . For $100. what are you worried about , acouple of hours or labor? If you are looking for 4;11s go for it.

    I don't have the luxury of an inspection as the unit is half way accross the country. But from everyone's input I will get back with the seller and let him know I want it. Thank you all very much!!

    Say! I just thought of something. You say that this will rev a couple hundred RPMs higher on the highway. I have also read that a lightened or an aluminum flywheel will reduce low end torque and RPMs as well are increase top end speed. If a lightened or an aluminum flywheel is used with a 4.11 wouldn't you net about the same results as a 3.9 while saving a little weight too?
