Re: Woof! Those 14-bolt FF rear axles!
i'd be carefull about taking too much off the bottom of the housing.. not because of strength.. it's plenty thick.. because of the diff cover.. i wish i had pics of mine that i recently swapped out.. I ground it till it was smooth on the bottom(big ramp), taking most of the lip off. when i took it out, the diff cover was mangled on the bottom.. it was even with the lowest portion of the housing and the rocks were catching it. it was all bent up, barely holding gear lube....oh well.. i still swapped it for a 5.0........
