Prepping new diff and final drive

Dec 22, 2011 update on ae86andkp61's Toyota Corolla GT-S

Here is my new Toyota OE 4.3 final drive with a my gear deburring going on. I decided to chamfer all the machined edges to help eliminate stress risers and maximize the life of my new rear axle. Look for the shiny spots all along the edge of the teeth. This gearset will go off for a WPC surface treatment before it is mounted in modified housing (integrated traction brackets and lowered/adjustable panhard mount) with a new OS Giken 1.5-way LSD that is sitting in my dining room as we speak. I am hoping that all new high-quality parts with the best prep and assembly will result in a 6.7” rear that can hold up to my increased power.
