Best bet would be try too find someone local with a welded and see from there. But again its really not bad, worst case if you absolutely hate it, swap out diffs.


Btw my super angle kit by SLRSpeed came in today and is going in this weekend!!

3.15 I believe... It's out of a 323ci 5speed. The diff only has about 40k miles on it. I swapped it out for a 3.46
