Just rebuild the diff, its easy! I did mine on the ground, and even left the diff in the car while I did it.
Took a couple tries to get the spider gears lined up and everything back together, but well worth the difference it made!
I used the carbon fiber friction plates from the 03-04 Cobras, and used a couple of my friction plates that were still good to stack it all together nice and tight.
If you replace the outer seals, its a good time to replace the bearings as well. You can rent a slide hammer for free to remove both of these parts. Bearings are a good idea, because when they start to go bad they will scar the axles where the bearing rides, and make quite a bit of noise.
Best of luck!
