Yea, I forgot about the springs and plates. They will also be shot, along with the cross shaft and clutch plates. You can buy all new parts to rebuild the Moroso (Eaton) Posi, but it might be cheaper to just replace it. The Moroso unit has special heat treated 17 tooth axle gears and 800 pound preload springs and thicker plates. Some of them also had the 22 disc clutch set instead of the standard 18 disc set. They also had a special heat treated cross shaft. Tom's Differentials has all of these parts.
