I finally broke down and tried the lock washer diff mod, if that is what we are going to call it. I was skeptical about it, but after cracking open the diff every two weeks or so I decided to give it a try.

When I first put it back together it almost felt like a solid locked diff but after a quick 10 second spin on the living room floor it felt just like a fresh 50K packed diff.

Then I took it out for a extended test up and down the street and in the grass. It was perfect. I hope it stays the way it is because this is just the way I like it.

Does anyone have long term experience with this mod?

Who came up with this? We need to give him credit, I am so over the leaking diff oil.
