So any one running around with there rear diffs welded? How do they drive? I could imagine that you may hear some chirping going around tight corners but because they are basically being pulled along for the ride and no power being put to them not unless you are off road I don't see them being as bad. But what do I know.
Lots of us have them - you have to pull a rear axle on pavement or you will snap axle joints with big tires. Smaller tires you will just get a lot of chirping and binding around corners - still hard on the joints, and better to pull one.

All I notice is I leave a lot of rubber on the concrete where ever I drive.
(However my tires are much different than yours and I weigh less too...)
I think you could "do" an axle in 15 minutes including putting the tools away?
It will make a world of difference in your Subies ability to climb!

welding the diff is very useful and i'm with everyone else it doesn't take long to get the axle in and out. a minor inconvience ( if any, not for me though) for what you gain on the trail.
