OK, Dif was definitely bad. Talked to a tech about to large "piston rings" (as I described then) I found rolling around in there back of the tranny. Turns out they are the clips that hold the center Dif together. Good, problem found.
However, there is A LOT of metal in here. And in inspecting visually the center Dif, all splines seem intact. But I'm actually picking what look to be teeth, be it gear or spline, out of the back casing. They are very small, maybe toothpick thickness, or a little thinner. Is it possible it's bad in a spot I can't see in the Dif? Are there smaller sets of splines inside that are not visible through all the holes in the Dif? I guess Im asking if I need to keep looking for the source of the ruptured metal.
