    I noticed you can buy new differential clutches from summit.. If I order these can I get them installed when my gears are installed? Since the differential will all ready be open, do you think they will charge me a lot to put these in?

    Definitely a good idea.. I doubt they will charge that much more to do it since the rear is already opened up... New bearings and the whole nine will freshen up the stock diff and make it like new.. O0

    if the clutches are worn you will get one wheel peels.

    You can get the rebuild kit from summit or Jegs for 109 bux. Its actually an upgrade to your stockers and they warantee it for a yr. If they werent such a pia to put in it would be worth doing evey yr.
