Expo axle help needed ASAP!!!!

got the axle swapped yesterday, just took it up and down the road, the m'effer is not shifting gears and i dont know why, i went from a 4.10 to a 3.73, but that shouldnt make it not shift, i dont know what the problem is, and hope some one else does,

also, there is a plug on top of the rear end that i do not know what it is, and was wondering if someoen else does

and then plugged it into the new axle

Good to hear (minor problem aside) that you finally got the axle on Ryan. I still have this center console that needs a few parts if you are interested in it to start sprucing up the interior.

I've been visiting the site, just not posting much. I've run out of readily affordable mods and everything left I may do costs me money that graduate school is currently taking. I hope to have my windows tinted at some point but have to get my door fixed first. Such is life I guess.
