Metal shavings on diff. plug, will my rear end grenade?
So I had a leaky pinion seal on my 97 f250 and I replaced it. I pulled the plug to check my diff lube level and I found a lot of metal flakes/shavings on the diff. plug. I have a c-9 rear end according to the door jamb sticker, I think this means I have a limited slip, 3.55. I also think its obvious I have some wear going on, but to what? Should I look forward to replacing the ring and pinion, bearings the limited slip? The rear feels tight still, not a lot of slop or backlash going on, what will I likely have to replace? Input, sarcastic commentary, advice, what ever you got, its wanted. thanks.
