Broken Mount on Rear Diff

So you may have seen my other post about replacing a torn inner right rear CV boot. In trying to take the CV cup out of the rear diff I noticed it didnt look level, then I saw the problem, the weld for the rear mount for the diff case is broken off and causing the diff to hang low in the back and on the right side.

So my problem is how do I know what the correct position is for the rear diff. How high up off of the frame should the inner CV Cups land so there is enough cleareance for the boots but not putting it so high to cause an issue.

THanks

Any suggestions on re-welding the rear mount so the diff is aligned to give enough room for the CV boots but not too high to exagerate the angle??

THanks

My rhino did this same thing but luckily where it broke was right there the bolt goes so I was easy to repair. Once you get it lined up and back together. Order yourself a rear diff stiffner. They put the diff right where it needs to be and hold it very strong.

Hi thanks for the suggestion, where did you purchase this rear diff stiffener from?

Cool thanks for the link. So where does it attach? Looks like on the bottom back of the diff and to the back frame rail?

I'm wondering if I could use this to position the diff and then fix/weld the mount?

Yes I does attach to to rear lower part of the diff then bolts to the frame. There's a good possibility that you can use this to line up the diff. Just make sure you take your time and get it right. You don't want to damage the splines for the driveshaft inside the diff. Good luck.

I like the look of this one as it apears to have to points on the diff to attach to unlike others ive seen.

The 04 is NOT the same. The 05 to 07 and the 08+ are all different. Phil I sent you a PM

Does anyone know if there are frame brackets made that can be welded in place of the originals? I see a man named Baxter on here made some in 2014 but I can't get in touch with him.
