Swapping Sammi Diff Gears Front to Rear
I have an '87 Sammi w/ a noisy rear differential.
I couldn't find a rear diff, but found a front one in good shape.
Front axles have 22 splines.
Can anyone confirm that rear axles have 26 splines?
I understand I can use the front pumpkin and gears, and can swap the portions of the present differential that receive the axle into the front pumpkin?
One Sammi "expert" says the axles should have the same spline count, but I seem to remember the rears are different. Cannot imagine why they WOULD be different, but...
