I have a diff that measures very little little radial runout (less than .003) but when set in a transmission case shows about .010 axial runout. Is this something that will change with preload on the carrier bearings or is this a sign of a bad diff?

I'll give you one guess on what diff this is...

Measured with a dial indicator on a mag-base, diff has bearings on it and it setup on some large parallels. Used some high power magnets to hold the bearings from rolling off my parallels.

Only one diff that Chris and I will no longer touch and how the MFactory diff for the D made it into production.

Winner!
Ever seen axial runout on one? Looks like the ring gear flange wobbles. The strange part is that the radial runout is so low

The above diff was sent back with a fucking 20% restocking fee, plus shipping on a defective OBX LSD. I went almost two years of not installing any LSD's. The eBay seller did take part of the hit as did I. He wanted to chuck the thing through a car window when they wanted to deny any warranty.

Aquafina/Chris then did his thing.

oof. Thats beyond frustrating. Unfortunately this is a second market diff and I have no recourse with OBX. I got very lucky on my last one it seems.
