Hi all, I took apart my D35 front diff today and was wondering if anyone else in here has noticed there were two different carrier bearing caps??:eek: , same bolts and all but the part that bolt onto the diff housing is different left from right. I can post pics on photobucket if you wish to see.

Thanks

Nope, I know which side they go on and all cuz I marked them as I took em off. The thing is the passenger side cap has a flat top, shiny aluminum type |_| (looks like it was machined) and the driver's side is a curved top darker metal, kinda like cast aluminum with a curved groove |_(¯)_| .

I was wondering if any of you had seen this before, is it some aftermarket cap (the curvy one) or do the diffs come standard with them.
