Re: loud front diffs why ?
For those who have never split their diff to inspect or repair,
The entire ring and pinion have a 'cast/sand blast' type surface.
True automotive gear sets will be polished to a specific surface specification and then,
interference fit/shimmed for obvious reasons.
Knowing that, even if one were to disconnect either shaft or the diff magnet,
the front axles will still be spinning the ring and pinion under certain circumstances if not all the time.
Not enough to turn a wheel on its own, but under zero load 'I THINK' the gears would still spin.
Pros..... please verify or teach me otherwise as I am sincere in asking.
My engineering experience will get me a cup of coffe 'sometimes' and that's about all it's worth if your not experienced in the field you are currently discussing.
Kinda like going to a Gynecologist with 30 years of experience when you have a brain tumor.
As you may suspect I've run into many who's opinion begins with 'I'm an engineer, therefore I must be right).
Experienced (my term for Pros), many who do this 80 hrs a week for a living are appreciated by me on these forums.
Sorry for the rant...........
