Anybody ever thought of putting an oil catch can on the rear axle


Haha, it seems that my rear axle leaks quite a fricken bit. I guess its been on my mind since ive been installing all of my suspension pieces part by part (ex: control arms, panhard bar, sways, rims, springs, shocks) and im pretty much under the car multiple times per week it seems. It literally looks like i could take an oil seperator, break off one of the nipple ends, and just clamp it onto that axle breather, and on the other hose end, put a breather. What do you guys think?

Yeah my axle on the right is solid black about 3" to the left of the nipple, and pretty much all the way to the right of it. I guess those tight turns get to the axle a little bit and it starts spitting back at you! haha

i cant get on SVT Performance thanks to government computers, but with the breather kit, how does it operate driving in the rain? or going through a puddle? I cant see the design so it might be a stupid question.

It wouldn't. I don't think it is a great idea for someone who drives in the rain at all. You probably don't get a lot of water where they put it, but still a possibility and would suck.

What some do is route the breather into the trunk. Be for warned you will smell diff oil all the time though in the car. Has a very distinct smell.

The JLT while pricey seems like a good solution as it is an enclosed system and would be great for an all weather DD

Haha, yeah diff oil makes me wanna throw up. We had royal purple sitting on my porch for a while and i was like nah... this is gonna have to go! It smells like a musty human oniony sent on top of a crude oil smell. It just smells awful! But yeah i can just make one for a little bit, i dont see how jlt and all these can charge 100$+ for something that cost so little to produce. Make it yourself and save some money and feel like a man. lol

+1 to making it yourself. I should have said go with the JLT design as I do agree with you. I just get used to not saying that because most people don't do that kinda stuff it seems.

You mean what Jay copied. Sorry, I couldn't resist saying that, considering how he goes on his huge rants about people copying him, acting like he invented the aluminum can. People were doing this to the rear axle years before him, the GT500KR was factory equipped this way. Shelby GT500KR Axle Reservoir - Shelby GT500 Modifications and Tech. - Team Shelby

The DIY version has worked great for me over the past year with no leaks. Unscrew your vent breather and take it into the hardware store to ensure you get the right size. I messed up and bought the hardware store 3/8 in black hose that's not automotive grade but it has held up.

The breather is zip tied so far up in the rear that rain isn't a problem.
