I've got the X and had the 4.1 then an SH28 and now an OS30. The only diff parts that have worn out for me are bearings. Sounds like there is too much slack in your diff. You might need to shim them or just put in whole new XSS diffs (which come with aluminum cups etc.)

Diff shims

Go with an Ofna shim kit and tighten those diff! Aluminum diff cups will help as well.

Go here for the steps:

One other thing to consider is your slipper clutch.

If it is to tight and there is no give in the drive train, it is very hard on the diff gears.

I usually tighten mine all of the way then back it off a quarter of a turn.
