TA Performance differential girdles are made from high strength 356-T6 cast aluminum and are precision CNC machined here in the USA.These girdles are specifically designed to strengthen the differential and add support to the bearing caps by means of the thick casting and reinforced crossbar. The crossbar contains two load bolts that apply pressure to the differential bearing caps to prevent bearing cap deflection under severe loads and acceleration. This greatly reduces or eliminates (in most cases) bearing cap fatigue and failure, one of the leading causes of broken rear ends. Each girdle is machined in-house using a 3 step CNC process which ensures the highest qualiy possible. Then each cover is hand deburred, inspected for the utmost in fit and finish, assembled, and packaged.
