lol yeah im sure, i still have the oil tray under the diff.

if you heard about alted performance he was known for doing things dodgy. and the diff was rebuild by him so im going to get the gears checked, but they look ok from what i can tell.

They don't have a gasket out of the factory, as above just use silicone.

well i just got back from supercheap.. i ordered a gasket in. cost 12 bucks, silicone was 20 bucks a tube... so being the tight a** i am i got the gasket :P

i learnt that there is difference between EA and EB diffs, apparently the bolt hoes are slightly different different size? or something like that

theres no guarantee the gasket wont leak, and you should still use silicon on the gasket anyway.
Proably will cost you the same end of the day when you need to do it again...
