    You could have just put shoe goo in there so that you can have a functional diff. again if you wanted.

    I would say stay off of the street, but since you most likely will be replacing the tranny at some point now, you might as well tear it up on the street.

    My buddy said he done his like that and kept doing some crazy doughnuts. I think he also ripped some drive shafts but other than that I don't think it did anything else bad to it. He didn't like all those doughnuts too much though so now he has a new tranny in it.

    with a 15 it works great..with the 3.3 all it did was spit out drive shafts every time i took a corner or got air....with a 15 it would spit a drive shaft but not all that often..and i didnt notice any extra wear on anything but drive shafts

    Shoe Goo WILL get eaten up. Use epoxy or JB-Weld. I JB-Welded MY diff, and it's awesome! Your driveline WILL take a bigger beating though, so don't try doing stuff that would stress it (landing at full throttle )

    Worked fine for me when I did it.

    How long have you had it in? Shoe Goo ain't exactly tough, and it will probably get eaten up eventually since it's kind of rubbery.

    well there is a easier way to do this. most poeple use silly putty when they do this. it's strong, removable and you dont have to let it dry.

    Silly putty won't completely lock it when used in planetary gear diffs. In spider diffs, it's a different story. But in planetary diffs, it allows for some differential action. I'm not sure if you wan't that or not.
