Ordered GBR 4.14 thrust bolted with ARB's! Seems like the perfect time, been kicking it around for months. That is why I need to know about the front.

Anything out of a late 1993 RRC-1995 RRC, Disco I will fit unless it is the rear with the 3 bolt rotoflex flange which would require swapping flanges.

You can either pull them apart at the swivel ball to axle housing or start working your way in from the outside. Me, I would do them from the outside and replace the rotors, pads, calipers if necessary and repack the bearings.

To remove the front diff you have to remove the brake calipers, drive flanges, hubs, stub axles, CVs and inner axles, front drive shaft and tie rod(one end). Then you can unbolt and remove the diff.

another question: about 2 minutes before I heard the diff blow the other day my speedometer quit. Is this a coincidence?

Good luck with your purchase, when mine arrived from GBR they had a loud whine to them, 2 months of driving didn't help so they came out and went back to Utah and it took months for them to agree they had messed up the first diff and finally build/ship a replacement. So a heads up, when you put them in they if they are making noises send them straight back, they should be silent and need no break in. btw nce you get everything running we should go to the Marble Falls off road park and test them out.

This is the second instance that I've heard of this in the last 6 months. Makes me wonder what's going on....

got the diff housing all cleaned out. used a big magnet to get all the metal pieces out. The question I have now is how much diff oil 80w 90 goes in the diff?

Ur, enough to fill it? I don't think anyone actually measures how much they put in. Just pump until it blurbs out. Get a pump from the auto parts store so you aren't trying to (cringe) pour it out of a bottle...it just won't happen.
