 The front diff has a few options as well as aftermarket parts. The aftermarket parts consist of the pictured Kiggly Racing Diff Saddle. This prevents deflection in the diff. If anything happens to the diff gear then its going to also take out your transfer gears and the transmission. Some have run the stock ones down into the 7s in AWD cars but this product is more geared towards FWD cars running big slicks. However its relatively inexpensive and is good insurance. Another aftermarket part is the RIP GRIP diff insert. This is also a JB Designs product and it acts as a locker when you need it to but will unlock when cornering. This is basically a part to act like a welded diff on straights but unlocks when maneuvering so the drive train doesn'​t bind up. You can also replace it all with a Quaife. However Quaife differentials in these cars are not recommended for high HP applications. They are more oriented towards auto cross or road course duty. The last option is the weld the diff. This works very effectively but you also will have drivetrain bindup issues when trying to turn. If you have ever driven a car with a spooled/​locked/​welded front diff then you already know what i mean. Most the cars running 7s are running stock front diffs or stock front diffs with the RIP GRIP insert. The front diff has a few options as well as aftermarket parts.

 If you are curious as to if the insert is what you should buy then you can go by this rule: If you plan to street drive the car at all then do not use one. If you plan to just track your car but dont want a welded front diff so you can turn at the end of the track then this is the product for you. Street driving with the diff insert can cause excessive wear on the part. If you are curious as to if the insert is what you should buy then you can go by this rule: If you plan to street drive the car at all then do not use one.
