    @Rockbaron1

    Pat, I called Diamond on Tuesday to price out a Diamond with a 9.5. He said he’d work it up and email me later in the day. Said if I didn’t get and email to message him because there must’ve been a typo with the email.

    I did not get said email so I contacted through the web site Tuesday evening. Still nothing Wednesday evening. I called and left a message explaining all this. Still nothing.

    From our initial conversation, it was going to be $5k plus.

    I ordered a Dana 60 from ECGS today. It’s based off of a 60 that they build and ship over seas to dealers to put in Hiluxs.

    Specs:

    -Stock width (Tacoma) Dana 60 axle
    -3.5” axle tubes 7/16” wall
    -all new center section
    -4.88s
    -Air actuated OX locker
    -Spring and shock mounts welded on
    -35 spline chromoly axles
    -All new bearings and seals

    $4080 minus $1000 for sending in my broken 8.4

    The 35 spline chromoly axles were a $550 option

    The all new bearings and seals were a little over $400

    They’re also sending me another shipping label to send my axles to them. This way, they will install the backing plates and brakes onto the new axle free of charge.

    It will be a 100% bolt in HD Dana 60 for $4080 and retains the wheel speed sensors.

    The Currie 9” would’ve been 6k+. The Currie comes raw, no shock mounts, no brake line tabs, needs bearings pressed, seals installed, etc.

    The Currie 35 spline axles are also not Chromoly

    In the end, the ECGS Dana 60 was a no brainer for me.

    The 60s lowest point is 6” below center of the axle tubes. I will be loosing around an inch of clearance, but the 37s will mostly make up the difference.

    You kinda have me sold. Diamond flaked on me too a while back and I just ended up focusing on something else.

    I doubt this can be beat. With 30 spline axles and used bearings it’s like 3k WITH an ARB or OX

    Honestly, I’m not crazy about ARBs any longer after having both of mine leak through the seals.

    Assuming semi float.
    Can they do custom width?

    I asked about full float, said he couldn’t do it and retain the wheel speed sensors.

    My problem is breaking the ring gear. I don’t really care about floats :D

    My factory rear has 94k on it with some serious use. Bearings are still good. I figure it’ll be a LONG time before I have to worry about it with new bearings.

    I don’t know about custom width TBH. Call and ask for Steven. He’s the sales manager. He handles the full builds apparently.

    I’m guessing my front ARB is leaking somewhere because the compressor starts cycling on and off when I use the locker.

    I just don’t know where to start looking for this presumed leak.

    Go to the diff breather under the hood. If you hear air, it’s the seals in the ARB and it’s pressurizing the diff.

    You could also leave the compressor on, and the lockers off. See if the leak is in The compressor or plumbing somewhere.

    Nice! Thanks. Looks like this might be a fairly easy diagnosis. Hopefully it’s just the compressor/tank plumbing.
