SOURCE: rear axle leaking

Block the front tires. Break the rear lugs loose. Jack up the rear of the truck at the center if possible. remove the wheels & brake drums. Remove the brake shoes,return springs & all the other hardware. Remove the differential cover & drain oil. If you have a posi the next step sucks. You need to remove the threaded pin from the housing & remove the axle retaining clips. All the while,being carefull of the spring in the posi unit. If no posi,then same procedure,minus the "pucker factor". After the axle is out,take a large flat blade screw driver or pry bar & pop the seal out. Keep in mind the axle bearing is probably gone too , so that's another procedure. Keep it apart,you'll be glad you did.

SOURCE: 1995 Ford vdan rear passenger door won't open (unlocked).

I just delt with this situation myself. I don't know if this is the same solution, but I had the same problem. If you take the panel off the door, you can probably push the rod that opens the door by hand. it's likely the handle isn't engaging the rod enough to open it. if that's true, just pop out the plastic bushing and screw it out (toward the front of the vehicle). Also, you probably want to lube up the latching mechanism. I had to actually cut a hole in the door to get mine to open (had sat for a couple of years). These handles just need adjusted after awhile.

SOURCE: 1998 Jeep Cherokee TDi the rear axle makes some noises

Any noise from the rear axle can be coming from many different causes, depending upon exactly what you are doing when the noise happens.
Check all mounting points and make sure none of the bushings are loose and that all hardware is tight. Jack up both rear wheels and check for play in the wheel assemblies, Check for any up and down play in the pinion yoke and excessive turning distance in the pinion itself (how far you need to turn the pinion before the rear wheels begin to turn). Also check the driveshaft universal joints for rust or excessive play. You need to find what is worn or broken before you can fix the problem. If you can duplicate the noise while standing still, have someone look underneath while you get it to make the noise. You may actually be able to see what is moving.

A code checker has to be hooked up to clear the codes after a repair. Most auto parts stores will let you use theirs at no cost. I hope this helps.

Did Ford make F150 XLT 2wd with no sway bars in 1995? I purchased one and there is no sway bar in front end.

My research tells me that yes, they did come with sway bars. There should be two mounting holes on that axle. The sway bar comes in a curved model that fits 1995's. You probably already figured this out but I thought I'd help!

How do you remove c-clips on axle of 95 ford rear end?

If you have already removed the outer axle bearing cover in the rear hub, try popping the axle out as some of them have a compression clip holding it in place in the differential. If it doesn't pop loose, you wil have to remove the differential cover and push the axle inward enough to access the retaining clip to remove it. It should slide out fairly easile once the axle is pushed in far enough to clear the retainer clip lock collar.

Vibrasion rear end 1998 f150

This is due to your traction lock axle clutch plates flinging off the lubrication and then chattering on turns. Add a 4 oz bottle of friction modifier to the axle fluid. Available from Ford dealer.

Did you have your axle lube changed at a fast lube place?

98 Ford F-150 2WD rear axle removel

The Ford is similar to the Chevy. Same procedures apply. Same retaining bolt in center section needs to be removed to allow cross shaft to come out. Same technique in removing spider gears. Same "C-clip" retainers on axle ends. you shouldn't have any issues.
