Default I need advice

Ok so im looking to buy a torsen right and I found someone who is selling the whole package here is a pic. Now its rusted bad do you guys think thats going to be a problem? And theres about 120000 miles on it, do you still think it has a long life ahead or no?


thanks
mike

Looks fine, surface rust. Give it a good scrubbing and paint it if it bothers you.

Get some better pictures, and if you pick it up in person make sure the halfshafts come out of the hub,

Well hes going to just send me the half shafts not the hubs. But heres some better pics. Any ideas how much life it has in it even though its already been through 120000 miles?

Looks fine to me rust wise, I wouldnt even worry about that.

Two areas of concern, looks like one of the housing mounts is bent, could be the picture, and make sure the ring gear and internals are good.

It is just the picture. Came out of a perfectly fine miata. No alignment issues, no drivetrain noises.


Thanks,
Jason
