Was that drug out of the bottom of the atlantic?

The ring and pinion are scrap.

The posi might live but the spider gears are compromised depending on how deep the rust is. Might be able to find an open diff and swap the gears, but at that point thats a lot of work. Sell the diff to somebody that wants the posi plates to get an LSD on their FWD 4l60e diff (assuming this is a 7.5)
