Re-Using Diff Case Bolts ?

Hello.

Can I re-use the diff case bolts when I install a new ARB diff case? Or do I have to use new ones?

Thanks.

If you are referring to the big red ARB diff cover, I think you should use new hardware. Should come with hardware, but if I remember correctly the one on my buddy's Jeep had different bolts than stock and they are probably a bit longer seeing that the thickness of the cover is about 10x the stocker.

Yea you can reuse them. I don't know if they are suppose to be changed but I have never seen a reused bolt break before. IF you can get a set of bolts for it at the local shop then do it. If it is going to take 5 weeks reuse them with some blue locktite.

I already reused them with blue loctite and 75 Nm torque. But a buddy told me that I shouldnīt do that.
Btw. itīs neary impossible to find some bolts with a inch thread over here.

Yes they can stretch. Thatīs why I tightened them uop with only 75NM and not with 10-120 NM (FSM).

Iīm a bit confused.
The 06 TJ manual says they need 95-120 NM. The 98 TJ manual says only 75 NM. But that are the same parts...

You better back thos bolts of then a .52nm . To get back on subject, I don't see a reason you can't reuse again. I will call a shop I know that does extremely good work and ask him. I will report back.

Blue will hold it too. Did you just dap em or did you get a good amount of threads? IF you got the threads not the one drop they will hold just fine.

I never let a woman drive my Jeep. I did it only once. But my sister wasnīt able to press the brake pedal strong enough with my 35s. The result was a bent tubular chrome front bumper. But for me it was ok. Time for a black steel bumper.

Wanna listen to my breaking axle shaft, diff bearing and ARB diff case...?



Only a friends Unimog was strong enough to get me out of there...



You can see we Germans like to damage US cars...
