Well its like 1mpg on the highway.. And you may gain in the city. You might just wanna wait before you end up disappointed for not getting gears and pay for another install.

If you don't know what your doing this is a bad idea.
A junkyard diff is a bad idea.


Bad + bad = HORRIBLE IDEA FTL

just open the diff and weld the spider gears = instalock.

otherwise, pay a pro with the $100 tools required to set backlash and properly set up a rearend

that does work, but i think it would bve rough for a daily driver since the 2 wheels cant differentiate speed when turning
i know, but if he wants to do it himself, he will see better results effing up his tire wear pulling into parking spots and turning... thats better than him incorrectly setting the gears in the differential and having them grind or whine...
