It might be hard to measure, but how often do these housings break? Is there any other benefit to the RX7 housing other than an increase in strength?

Do you need another benefit?.... The housing doesn't give you blow jobs. It just mounts the diff onto the car.

Do you see the word 'need' in my original question? I didn't think so. And while I might indeed -need- a *******, I understand that the housing does not offer that service. You might indeed -need- a beatdown, but I doubt that you are willing to allow me to help you with that.

Indeed! And I asked a specific question, and instead got a nancyboyontherag answer back. If you equate ignorance as the same thing as stupidity, perhaps you should look at this post -after- you finish bleeding out?

Get them to just put in a new diff and keep the "scrap".

Ive seen the same thing happen to another guy with his 99. Same damage as yours, but he hit a pot hole.

so now i have a few choices. i just picked up a 3.9 torson and a 6 speed.
The 3.9 has to go in, at least until i fix the 4.3. But the question is; do i bother putting in the 6 speed yet, or just make it simple and stick with the 5 speed?
with the 5 speed, i would loose that bottom end grunt that i love, but i would have a lower highway rpm.

The 6 speed came without a shifter, my 5 speed shifter fits into the slot and works fine, but it looks like it is cocked to the right a bit. Is this normal for the 6 speeds? Or would it be preferable to get the stock 6speed unit?

i will install the diff tomorrow afternoon.

I was under the impression that the six speed shifter was different.

Yes, the six speed requires its own shifter.

well i tried it out, and the shifter from my 2000 5 speed seems to work just fine in this 2000 6 speed. So i am going to use it.

ok, so how do i disconnect the CVs from the hubs?

I was able to pull the axles from the differential just fine, but i can't seem to be able to get them to budge from the hub. I pulled the 32mm nut from the end and tried to hammer the cv out but no dice. Am i missing something?
