Differential leaking-replace or rebuild?
Got a 2003 4x4 excursion with a 7.3L engine. Truck has 232k miles. I just noticed that the rear differential is leaking where the driveshaft enters the the diff. Slinging fluid all over the undercarriage. Differential is starting to grind some too.
So here's my question. Should I take the diff out and have it rebuilt or should I order a replacement? Which is more cost effective? If I need to order one, who should I order from? This is the family vehicle so I am not looking for anything spiffy. Thanks for the input.
