Does anybody know if these Torsen rear ends are a little noisey due to the nature of their design. Mine has a little whine that is noticeable. Just curious if anybody else has noticed this ? ? ? ? :seeya
Sorry Bill, I answered based on how I read the post. Not what may have been intended.
I don't think I'd be suprised that some differentials will make more noise than others. The nature of how the gears have to be shimmed on a unit by unit basis, practically garantees some variation. Besides, no mass manufacturer does 100% inspection of every feature of every part. The only time that happens is when there is some critical, usually safety related issue.
Looking at the your post again, I'm wondering if you are trying to ask what the reputation is for this particular make/model/version of differential. I don't know.
My take is that it is technically superior to a standard diff.
