long as its tight it wont matter. they have big non collapsing spacers for bearing preload so do her up as tight as you can.
id say you need a new nut though as they should basically lock on and not come off.

Yeah I'm not sure what's wrong with it I pulled the tail shaft out and the pinion is moving around and has about 10mm of play all around I tried tightening the nut but I can't move it to undo it or anything so I dunno what to do .... I guess I'll have to hand it over to a diff place .... Unless someone else has experienced this Aswell Nd knows how to fix it

at a guess i would say by now your diff is "fubar", it would be cheaper to just source another diff center and fit that , if you drain the oil i would imagine it is full of metal

Found a complete diff to swap over out of a 93 efi Gq so if they are the same ratio I'll just grab that and bang it in be alot quicker than stuffin around

Complete rear diff or just a set of gears? Cos I spoke to a mate of mine and he thinks the bearing has colapsed and that's why it's happened So I'd rather just swap the diff over or pay someone to do it ..... I hate doing diffs they f**kin stink like ****
