Hi

I've had a comment directed towards me regarding the durability of the diff. Being referred to as chocolate diff, so I'm trying to do a bit of research on the subject. I'm new to the off roading game and the vitara is our first vehicle for this purpose.

I have been told about a steel diff upgrade or something along those lines but thought I would try and extract some info from the ppl in the know.

Any advice/info would be greatly appreciated as it is a hobby I intend to pursue

If it was a Land Rover owner that directed the comment the proper retort was to ask about the tin foil half shafts on his chosen marque  Very Happy

I have never heard that expression in relation to a vit diff, I always thought the weakest bit of a bit of the vitara drive train was the gear box (not that weak IMO)
I could of course be wildly off the mark and completely wrong  Embarassed
