On my original 3.00 rear end on the front going to the drive shaft there or it looks like a sheild that bolts on the housing.Now on my4.11 there is no such thing. My question is do you need it?Or is it some kind of safty measure.:confused:

Often that 'shroud' had a rubber snubber on top of it that would limit the travel of the housing. Some old-time racers would put an adjustable snubber on here and make a poor-man's traction bar to limit rear end housing wind-up on hard acceleration.
