Here is the video with the fluid drained:

Remember, I have NO experiance with differentials, so I litteraly have no clue if this is normal gear clatter. My guess is something is shot due ti the fact that this is the SAME noise I was experiencing to begin with.

Video with fluid still in the Diff:

No one has any clue? I don't want to tear apart this differential if there is nothing wrong with it.

Well, I'll be hitting up the junk yard and keeping this one as a spare. I went to a trans shop and the guy said it was not normal. He said he could rebuild it for around 350$. I passed the offer. If I am able to keep this car long enough, I ill end up rebuilding the differential myself with an LSD swap from a Surpra MKIV NA small diff or possibly a TRD unit if I can figure out comparability!

In the mean time, I will install a junkyard unit.

The rear diff on my 05 IS250 is starting to make that sound, though not quite as loud...yet. Damn
