More "advice" on welding a diff for the street and I WILL lock the thread.

We maintain advice for the sake of general safety around here when at all possible.

Then you get another mention of the stuff we older, more experienced members, completely rule against, and the reminder has to be posted again.

Being that I am coming from an off road community, I too can comment on this. I ran timed mud bogs for a few years. The difference between mud bogs and drag strips ar night and day. Mud bogs you want tire spin to keep the tread clean, drag strip you want no (or very little) tire spin. The traction (stress on parts) is totally different between the two, so don't even try to compare them. Now as far as welding your spiders together to lock up the diff, thats just asking for trouble. If that was the best way to go why would so many manufactures sell locking units? Im sorry sicksixseven, welding in not the way to go, nor is it at all safe, you have just avoided the bullet if that is what you have done. You time is coming, just hope nobody gets hurt.

I would just go with the full steel spool. Then everything is all one piece and stronger. Mini spools will work and i have seen many used in several applications. Just my two cents. Lets see some pics of the car when its done.
