i dont mind tearing into it, and definatly want to learn, and from what it's doing i think there is definatly something wrong since it isnt really driveable, im just wondering if i should grab that other rear end $325 might be a little high, but in NorCal and having new brakes it might not be tooooo bad of a price, i guess if i do grab that other rear i can always tear into this one later and learn on it, but i will feel real stupid if it just needs something tightened and adding oil/gasket
of course i'd still have a 12 bolt when all is said and done
