Hey Guys, Some Thanks for the good info. I have a question for you all.
I'm building a differential for my car, and am a bit confused. I have a VW differential, a Peloquin LSD from a '98 GTI, and do not understand how to seal the stub axles. The groove that runs in a spiral from the inside of the axle hole to the outside will , obviously leak oil, even grease to the cv flanges, and make a mess.
I'm amazed that the stub axle appears to run metal to metal, so this groove seems quite necessary to provide lube. Any ideas how to keep the lube in? Thanks
on the outside of the plates that carry the differential and the bearings i have axle seals. Keeps differential lube between the axle and stub shaft but doesnt allow it to leak out. I just took my axle shaft to the parts store and searched until i found one that fit. now i just gotta get the plates CNC'd so that the seals will press in.
Take a closer look at all the pics and you will see the seals.
