Joyridin' - Interesting. I didn't know that any Series 1 diffs used tapered rollers. There really is a wealth of knowledge here.
PS - Any tips or issues I need to keep in mind about the use of the Team CJ Bronze bushing set, or is it really as straightforward as it's touted to be?

For others contemplating a Jag IRS rebuild/refresh, this realy looks like the way to go. Team CJ system bronze
