installing powertrax into diff518 viewsonce Dean had put the pieces of the power-trax together,it was up to me to try to fit the unit in,the only real difficult part was two springs which sit in slots 180 degrees from each other,you have to keep the one spring in which wants to push the unit apart,and then rotate the whole unit 180 to install the other spring,its tricky but with a little patience it can be done
