Front dif safety wire

what bolts do i have to safety wire on the front diff?

have seen this by max powers

just to saftey wire, or spot weld the boltheads so they don't come loose.
If you don't do it, you will be buying a front diff soon at $1000
The bolt heads will come loose and shoot out the case.

that is correct, You have to split the cases and there is a big ring gear in there with about 12 bolts.

i think we found the reason for those bolts that came loose.

we left the tunnel open over the front drive line and observed when we went on test runs. the shaft runs true until about 50mph then it started wobling towards the dif side. we re centered and tried every trick to rectify. al invain. then we build a new propshaft with more universals and center bearing. we balanced it and no more wobling or vibration.
