I have a 97 vzj95 prado 3.4lt v6 Recently the front diff seized and I've replaced it but now on turns while accelerating I'm hearing a clunk from the rear diff... Is this a wind up issue? Thanks


Yes it is a wind up of the axles and not the drive shafts. Your car has a limited slip diff and it is locking up.
When you are accelerating the diff locks up and your wheels are rotating at different rates while turning. This causes the axles to twist until the pressure causes the Limited Slip Diff to slip.
My guess would be that someone has changed the diff oil with non Limited Slip Diff oil.

Why do Grand Cherokee Limited 1998 over steer?


The mechanical stops for the steering may not be correct, OR it is 'normal' and because the wheel is turned so far the inside tire is really scrunched. Also try increasing the tire pressure to the max in the manual

1997 Jeep grand Cherokee limited 5.2l v8....how to fix very stiff steering. I have changed the power steering pump already an it is still hard to turn my wheels


sound like lack of lubrication at the steering joints, your ball joints need greasing and make sure you bleed power steering system, check power steering fluid level.if low more like power steering system full of air need bleeding.

Why is my 93 jeep grand cherokee limited 5.2 v8 whining?


Did you check all the fluids? Power steering can whine when fluid levels get low. I would think of things that are driven by the engine: power steering pump (check the power steering fluid), AC compressor, water pump, and so on.

Check out the belt tensioner; make sure it's not too tight, and that the pulley is properly lubricated. If that doesn't fix it, ask your mechanic about timing belt issues (fairly soon).

Hope helps.

Cv shafts why is there a joint like section in the middle of the pass. side cv axle its long but looks like 2 pieces somebody can you tell me and do i replace the whole thing or what? Thank You Randy


Yes, you (generally) replace the whole thing as a unit. The reason it's in two sections is to reduce 'torque steer'.

On FWD cars, when you accelerate the the axles will twist slightly, building up tension and applying additional force. This is fine as long as the axles are the same length, but if one is longer, it will twist more and cause that tire to apply more force and push the car towards the other side. Segmenting the axle negates this somewhat.

Hope this helps.

98 jeep wrangler rear diff dana 35


when you take the rear cover off of the differential housing you will see a whole bunch of small clutches between the spider gears and the ring gear housing, you will see that the axles go right through them. If it is not a limited slip it will not have these clutches

93 Jeep Cherokee - steering problems


Check both front wheels with the steering wheel centered. One or both may appear to be pointing in the wrong direction slightly. Check both sleeves on the tie rod ends to make sure they are tight and not able to turn. (adjustment sleeves are slightly different than on most cars. One sleeve extends from the drivers side across the front and is about 21/2' long the other is shorter and is about 5" to the passenger side of the pitman arm on the steering box. If either moves, turn it 'till the wheels are fairly straight, tighten the bolts that are on the clamp around the slotted tube, and bring it to an alignment shop and have the toe in re-set.
A condition such as this is nothing to mess with. loss of steering is extremely dangerous.
