Question about Cars & Trucks
When I turn a corner, my rear end jurks really bad like I'm hitting a brick wall. I just changed the universal joints and it is still doing it. I really need to know if it is the rear end or need to change the fluid in the rear end thanks

Clunking noise in the rear of the vehicle is a broad statement. When is the vehicle doing it? Is it all the time or just over bumps? Is it happening only going around curves? Is it a constant bump that speeds up and slows down with the vehicle speed. You would be supprised how many clunking noises can come from the driveline not the suspension. It could be anything from a bushing to your rear differential getting ready to grenade.

remove front wheel brakes,rotors, axle nut,remove the four bolts on the bake side of your unit bearing using one of the 4 bolts removed from the unit bearing (also knowin as wheel bearing) go get a half dozen of the same bolt only 1 to 2 inchs longer theard them into the unit bearing from the back side and start beating. the unit bearing is a sob to get out but will come out with time once you get it out pull out your axle shaft replace the ujoint and reassemble anti seize everything as you re assemble it

Dont remember specific amounts for those but they are "fill till it comes out of fill hole" On flat level ground. About three gallons should do it with some leftover. Check with your parts house or dealer to make sure of what goes into the transfer case...many now use dextron III not gear lube.
Any excessive metal flakes in old lube indicates a problem with internal parts wear for either diffs or case. (everything wears so there is always some, it just shouldn't look like glitter paint)
There should be tow approx 1" nuts on the back of the case lower one is drain, upper to fill. Diff cover needs to be removed to drain. Fill through plug on cover.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the information. This will save me a lot of money. Thanks again!"
If you have a positraction differential, you need posi additive along with the new lube. After it's in, take it to a parking lot and make tight left turns then tight right turns to get the lube between the posi plates. That usually frees it up unless there is an actual mechanical problem in the diff.
