    Default Diff Replacement options

    Hi,
    A buddy of mine has a 2002 Mazda Drifter 2.5td with a seriously humming diff. it is 4x2. What is the diff replacement options available, that is if the diff is beyond repair status.

    Other makes or ratios.

    Stick with the gearmax - relatively cheap to maintain and spares freely available
    Ratio is 4.44, standard the 2.5TD has the M82 diff as far as I know, you can have the crown and Pinion replaced if sideshafts, etc are still good. You can also check at scrapyards, might pick one up for a bargain - the same diff is used in the 2.7 / KZTE hilux 4x2 models and the nissan Hardbody as well, although probably all with different ratios

    You can fit other ratios, but don't deviate too far from the original - higher ratios will result in higher RPM at the same speed...

    If you need a stronger diff, go for the M89, but it is expensive and parts are expensive too... plus you will have to do a ratio change before fitting it to the 2.5...
