G'day everyone,

I have a Suzuki LJ80V and it has a Diff Oil leak around the RH rear spring U bolts that hold the lower shock absorber mounting plate and spring to the diff.
I've pulled the brake drum off to check for oil leak into the brake shoe area, but there is no leak there.
The shock absorber is not leaking either.

I was wondering if the actual diff could be cracked and leaking where the U bolts clamp the spring and lower shock absorber mounting plate together?

The oil has worked it's way between the spring leafs and it is getting quite messy.

Has anyone experience with this problem.

Thanks & regards Peter.
P.S. Yes it's a bit rough, but **** we have the best fun in it !!!

hi dingdong,

I've had it airborne quite a few times, so I won't be surprised if it is cracked.
I'll pull it apart and have a look. Thanks for your help dingdong.

Regards, Peter.

Hi glenno,

it's always good to hear a good "Zuki" experience. Mine is still standard enginewise, but the tyres are a bit bigger & wider than the originals and still on the same rims.

I have so much fun in the Suzuki and I agree, they are a great little car.

Thanks glenno,

regards, Peter.
