At this point, swap in just about any rear, see if there's a difference and then go from there. For all you know, the axle tubes could be bent and a rebuild will never fix that.

Swapped transmissions, swapped rears. Only reason rear was in question is because corbos ****ed the rebuild up and left pinion loose.
