    I took my 73 K5 "DaBitch" to Germany last year. It is great driving it at the small streets in Germany...
    And now, at easter weekend, I killed its rear differential by pulling my friend out of a deep mud hole.
    It has a GM CORPORATE 12-bolt rear diff (4:11) on it.
    I broke both, the upper and the lower gearwheels (10 teeth).
    What is the right ting to do now?
    What do I have to consider by looking for a replacement?
    What about the semi-blocking diffs???
    Where can I order parts for my "Bitch". I will be back on the streets soon. Summer is coming and it needs some workout...
    Any comments welcome.
    I hope somebody can help me...
    Looking for your reply and advice.
    Please help me to keep "DaBitch" going in Germany.
    Please also advice me how to change the diff the easiest way.
    Many thanks.
    Tim

    You broke the spider gears? Are the ring and pinion okay? If the ring, pinion and carrier are all good you should be able to find spiders easy, if you need them let me know. I'll have to check but there is a good chance I have them for you. Otherwise go with a Lock-Right, it will replace the spiders.
