    you'll be very happy with it and with proper maintenance it should last you a long time. 12's will be fairly easy to get.

    Check the rearend for any fluid that is collecting on the bottom of the diff-tells you vaguely if it has been beat on.

    not necessarily.....most pinion seals leak regardless of whether it was beat on or not.

    I beat on mine and it doesnt leak there.. must be a 98 thing...

    Honestly with good fluid changes and fixing something small before it becomes a major issue. You shouldnt have any major issues honestly

    Mine's a 98 and the stock rear leaked almost from day 1 and wasn't beat on. The pinion seals in these rears are known to go out....you've just been lucky.
