Hi Kev,

The only time l have seen broken/cracked diff housings is on Hilux & Landcruiser vehicles when they are used in the mining sector or extreme 4x4.

Hopefully it's not your car Sad

Shit that's unreal Kev, I thought a 9" would last forever, especially in a Cruiser.
Just goes to show you then hey. Another thing I need to check. Was there any vibration at all ???.

Have they stripped it already or can you still get a phone Pic.
