    Old style G.M. diff, I'm not sure of the name, I thought they were Eatons or something.

    You could find them under the early 50s and 60s trucks.
    I really don't know much about them and have no idea why they would have a drop-out third member AND an inspection cover.

    I can just imagine how that conversation went just prior to it falling apart:

    Owner: Yeah I just got the 502 in, its now got 550 hp
    Friend: Wow, did you di anything else to it?
    Owner: Nah, don't need it in the mud, the tires slip so you can't shock anything apart.
    Friend: Well let's take it out for a spin.
    Suburban: VROOM VROOM BANG
    Owner: ^%##@^$@&$*$^%#%$^

    It's for aerodynamics, cuts down on the drag.

    Exactly /forums/images/icons/blush.gif

    There was a reason they called the "no spin", in this case it should be called the "no go"! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Another positive is you never have to worry about changing your differential fluid. Instead of the "maintainence free" battery, It's a maintenance free rear end....
