Can anyone tell me what would be involved in building a diff from scratch? I am building a T from the ground up and I am down to the last few parts. I was thinking of just building some diffs for it. Thanks for any help.

Its basically building you spider gears up in your ring gear cup then installing your ring gear assembly and your pinion and bearings into your diff cases and screwing together.The real trick is shiming your diffs so there is little lash in the gears so they last.Anyone got any tips on shiming the stock diffs?What shims you use etc?

You can usually find some diffs on ebay for around $15-20 already assembled. That's cheaper than building them and they are usually new for that price.

I have had the worst luck with e-bay, I always seem to get out bid at the last minute usually by some jerk who puts it back on ebay a week later for more money.

Good luck Easy, let me know how you make out. I think I may be building a foc tranny too in the near future. Guys want way too much just for a tranny when you can find maxxes all over complete for about 200 right now.
