Flanges

Is it ok to change the flange on the diff? Will it affect the backlash or mess up the crush sleeve?

Re: Flanges

Not 100% sure but I think you would be best to change the seal and crush sleeve and count threads before you remove it. I don't think it effects the backlash though. Jim

Re: Flanges

I would not do it. i think it will affect the backlash.

i got a vitara/kick rear 3rd with a missing flange and the pinion was poining in an angular direction.

why do you want to change it? cant you just drill 4 holes for an old-style flange?

Re: Flanges

Not a good idea at all. You will loose the preload on the bearings and crush sleeve.

You could try to do it, but in the long run you will end up breaking something inside the diff.

Best to break it down and reset it up with a new crush collar.
