Post E36 LSD Differential Rebuild
Any recommendations on differential repair shop? It looks like the passenger side carrier bearing is starting to fail (clicking noise and play on the stub axle).

thanks,

Clicking is usually the CV joint, are you sure its the diff bearing? Bearings typically whine.

I am embarrassed to say that the noise was the dust shield crimped down a bit on a slightly rusty disk. There is some movement in the cv but not enough to justify replacement.

thanks,
