    Damn You Torsen!!

    So I ordered some Richmond 4:10's for my 00 WS6 the other day and started the install tonight after work in the shop. I pull the brakes off, remove driveshaft, remove diff cover....and whats staring me in the face...a torsen diff setup. I was not aware that my car had a torsen diff setup...I did not have the adapters to run the normal gears with that diff. So I did not end up putting my gears in and I wasnt happy...

    My questions NOW is...what gears can I run with my diff setup because I would rather not change it. Can I run the Motive 3.90's? 3.73's? I cant bring myself to spend almost 200bucks on SLP bracket to put 4:10's in...

    If anyone can help me answer my question that would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Thanks,
    Evan

    SAME HERE ,AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT BECAUSE IT IS A BITCH TO GET BACK OUT IF YOU DONT

    YOU JUST HAVE TO BARELY GRIND THE EDGE THAT HITS THE RING GEAR ABOUT A 1/4 INCH BACK MAYBE
