I think you could get 170 shipped for a low mileage C90 drive - just put "perfect for the DJ mod" in the description.

Awesome. My repair is holding strong so I'm going to just resell this final drive. I'll put it here and on ebay, see what comes of it.



Thank you guys again.

Well, apparently I did it right because I haven't had a single leak (even with the half cruddy crush gasket it came with). Thanks again for the suggestion of a quick retap a minor size higher. Changing the thread pitch and going up a size higher seemed like it might be a losing proposition, but it appears to be a great permanent fix.

Getting the shaft back in really can be beyond frustrating and mind numbing.
I tried for hours.
Then I found a super easy quick solution:
Let your wife try.

Mine got it in about 3 minutes.
