OEM gaskets are very expensive
LR Direct has aftermarket differential gaskets for $.50. The OEM is $35.00. I'm going to buy the aftermarket seeing as how I could change it every week and still be ahead financially.
But my question is why is it so much? If anyone buys the OEM gasket, can I ask why?
For some parts I go OEM because I know they'll be built right. Like for a water pump or something, I want it to last. But I don't think I'd go there for gaskets.
