    Is the "s" spring a direct swap and if so where do I get one? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
    This is for a friends 85 1/2 ton , he was replacing axle seals and the spider gears fell out /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
    Or can we just remove a bunch of the guts and turn it into an open diff.?

    Maybe this will help . But honestly , and bear in mind I LOVE my 1/2 ton axles , I would not put that ticking timebomb back in there . Mine broke on my original 10 bolt , it could of lost the c-clips but I got lucky and stuff was jammed in there holding my axles in , I went to a yard and pulled an open 12 bolt , bought a lunchbox locker , and all is right in the world of my DD/camping rig /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
