correct me if I'm wrong, but you compare an american product versus an imported product. have you ever thought that MAYBE (not sure) for the European and Japanese people (me) , the J's racing Final Gear is almost the same price as the one from Rick?
Why is it almost th esame price fo ryou?!

Yes, and like GoFaassttt, I've had this combination for some time, maybe not as many miles as him, but still considerable. I have had no issues with the diff. Even the oil analysis has shown that wear is well within accepted limits for a NA car. I change the fluid annually. The car puts on about 10K a year.
I haven't seen such discussions. Furthermore, I've not actually seen reports where these 4.44s have grenaded at all. Only ones where it involved the stock gears.
I have definitely read posts that state 4.57 is the way to go if you are FI because of its increased durability along with an 04+ diff, although lately I have been reading that these are both just urban myths, thanks for the info Xviper and GoFasssttt I think I will be getting these gears in the NEAR future

04 Diff, minor changes to the oil galley for the pinion. Now that is a fact. They also added 1/16 or so the the caps. Not exactly a CompTech diff housing and was most likely just a side effect from the new casting. So whoever is spreading this as fact, please post up proof. CompTech gets calls teling them this and they just scratch their heads and wonder where that came from. They have upgraded both housing over the last two years. The differance is minor in their opinion.

4.57, now that is stronger the OEM. To date I can count the failure on one hand and have fingers leftover. The primary reason is the thicker tooth and the quaility of the metal forgings.
