nylon plugs

Recommended Posts

On the right axle, there is a set of nylon plugs underneath the traction bolts. They are no longer availible. What is everyone using now when they rebuild their axles?

I put a later model limited slip unit in mine. I like the way they work much better. I changed the diff, axle and right hub on mine. But if my thinking is correct, you really only need to change the diff housing with all the spider gears included. I think this will fit with the older style axle and hub. This way it would still look completely stock, but the limited slip feature is in the spring loading of the spider gears in the housing. The set screws would then only be there for looks.

I have been contemplating this myself. I could be way off here but one thing I have thought of, would be to fabricate some new plugs out of something like one of those self-healing cutting boards which I believe are made of a very durable nylon. If this works it would be a cheap solution though I think Rod's suggestion is a better long-term solution. Wade
