    Default Riddler Diff Covers & Rokmen Steering Skid

    I've been smelling gear oil lately when I get home from work and noticed slight leaks / saturation on both diff covers I changed the fluid a while back and I guess I did something wrong. Anyway, since I need to do it all over again, I decided now would be the perfect time to add a little armor. I've had my eye on these products for quite some time. Hopefully the juice is worth the squeeze!

    What'd you use to seal up the diff cover? Congrats on the parts

    Order a set of lube lockers instead using rtv and make sure to torque to the correct specs and correct order.

    Don't know if you'd be interested in these, http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/...2123a656f20e67
    seems a little less expensive, with the same strength.

    I used permatex...but I can't recall if I used black or ultra black?! Pretty sure I went with the majority consensus on JF.

    I was actually planning on purchasing some lube lockers, but the gentleman I spoke with from Rokmen persuaded me to stick with RTV. He recommended "the right stuff" or "ultra black." He said for the price, my money would be better spent on something else. I remember considering them when I was doing the original fluid change but read about them on JF and ended up going with RTV.

    I believe my main problem was not torqing the bolts to spec. Was not aware of a specific order though...makes sense. Elighten me!

    I've had them on both my axles for about 15k miles now, no notice of a leak yet. I haven't pulled the covers at all since then though, so I don't know how well they hold up after a few uses.
