    'Though you can find instructions in most manuals, the items you mentioned are bolt out, bolt in items that require wrenches and common sense, more than instructions. Standing advise on this work is to be sure to support both body and suspension equally to avoid having the differential (axle) fall on you if removing springs or the diff itself. If you have a specific question on a particular item, you can ask here and someone will help.

Replacing those items are pretty much "see it do it" repairs. Just remember that axles need to be supported by a floor jack so you can lower them after bolts have been removed, and body needs to be well supported with jackstands so it does not follow as stuff is being lowered. When changing a differential, gear ratio must be an exact match to one at other end. You will need lots of wd40 and some good solid 1/2" drive sockets and breaker bars to get hardware loose.

Rear end went out on 2000 tundra need instructions how to install it


Block the front tires, jack up the rear end. Remove driveshaft from rear end. Loosen but do not remove the leaf springs and the shock absorbers. Remove the brake lines and the emergency brake cable. Return vehicle to ground and finish removing the leaf springs and the shock absorbers. The vehicle will have to be slightly raised to do this. The other option is to replace the ring and pinion as a unit which requires a completely different set of instructions. What will you be doing, replacing the entire axle and housing or just the ring and pinion?

I'm trying to service the rear differential but can't find the plug 2 put my gear oil in...help pls...


Look up high, on the differential case. Fill the gear oil there.

When I looked it up on my online resource it says there is a vent hose at the top of the differential, #7.

Rear Axle Axle Housing Assembly Removal & Installation To Remove:
Exploded view of the rear axle mounting 88457g85.gif

  1. Raise and support the rear of the vehicle safely using jackstands under the frame. Position a floor jack or a second set of jackstands to support the rear axle housing. If a floor jack is being used, take care when removing the U-bolts to keep the axle from suddenly dislodging.
  2. Remove the rear wheels and drums for clearance and to remove some weight from the axle housing.
  3. If equipped, remove the axle vibration dampener.
  4. Matchmark and remove the rear driveshaft from the pinion flange. Either remove the shaft completely from the vehicle or support it aside from the undercarriage using safety wire, but DO NOT allow the shaft to hang from the slip joint.
  5. Remove the shock absorber-to-axle housing retainers, then swing the shock absorbers away from the axle housing.
  6. Disconnect the brake lines from the axle housing clips and the backing plates (wheel cylinders). NOTE: When disconnecting the brake lines from the wheel cylinders, immediately plug or cap the lines to prevent system contamination or excessive fluid loss.
  7. If applicable, unplug the speed sensor connectors at the junction block.
  8. Disconnect the parking brake cable(s).
  9. Disconnect the axle housing-to-spring U-bolt nuts, washers. U-bolts and the anchor plates.
  10. Remove the vent hose from the top of the axle housing.
  11. Remove the axle with the help of an assistant by moving it to clear the leaf spring, or if desired, the leaf springs can be disconnected from the frame at the rear end to lower the axle down and back, but first refer to the leaf spring procedures for information regarding spring installation and removal.
To Install:
  1. With the help of an assistant, carefully position the rear axle into the vehicle.
  2. Connect the vent hose to the axle housing.
  3. Be sure the housing is properly positioned on the leaf spring, then loosely install the U-bolts, anchor plates, washers and nuts.
    • Tighten the U-bolt nuts in a cross pattern to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm) to make sure everything is evenly seated. Then tighten the nuts in steps to 41 ft. lbs. (55 Nm) on 1994-95 models or 74 ft. lbs. (100 Nm) on 1996 and later models.
  4. Remove the caps from the brakes lines then connect the lines and secure them to the axle housing.
  5. If removed, connect the parking brake cable(s).
  6. If applicable, attach the speed sensor connectors to the junction block.
  7. Align and install the driveshaft assembly. Refer to the procedure earlier in this section for details.
  8. Install the shock absorbers to the lower mounts, then tighten the mount nuts.
  9. If equipped, install the axle vibration dampener.
  10. Install the brake drums and the tire/wheel assemblies.
  11. Properly refill the brake master cylinder and bleed the hydraulic brake system.
  12. Check the fluid level in the rear axle assembly and add, as necessary. Make sure the vehicle is level when checking and adding fluid.
  13. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the truck.

My rear end has dropped and looks crazy and will not lift


Do you have:
1. Shocks and Leaf Springs?
If so: the Shocks could be "shot" and/or broken or completely discharged. OR the Leaf Springs Retainers or the Leaf Springs have broken. The Retainers should have two (2) bolts holding braces which hold the multiple leafs of the Leaf Springs together. Check these. Also you have bushings bolted then welded to the frame that will need to be checked.
2. Struts with Coils (Springs)?
If so: the Struts could be "shot, and/or broken or completely discharged. The Coils (Springs) could be broken of dislocated.
3. Coils (Springs) without Struts?
If so: the Coils (Springs) could be broken or dislocated.
4. Independent Bar Suspension?
If so: the independent bars could be bent, broken or dislocated from their frame connections with the frame.
5. Solid Axle?
If so: the Axle could be bent, broken or dislocated from their frame connections with the frame.
Since you cannot lift the vehicle, I am assuming you are using the jack under the axle to lift? This would point to the Axle/Bars being broken.

Was an excessive load (weight) put on the back of the SUV lately?

If you can't lift the rear of the vehicle, jack-up and properly support the front then jack-up and support the middle towars the rear of the vehicle to gain access to the rear of the vehicle for a better look.
However while doing this if the rear starts rising: keep a careful eye on the rear tires to see if they are going lower than what they would normally go when you are jacking-up the rear, especially with a broken Axle or Bars. THIS COULD CAUSE THE BROKEN OR DISLOCATED PARTS TO FURTHER BREAK OR CAUSE OTHER CONNECTING PARTS TO FAIL AND BREAK OR COULD CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE REST OF THE SURROUNDING AREAS OF THE CAR. I have seen an Axle and Bars that were broken "pierce" into the body of the vehicle because they were not carefully watching.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information, problems, or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
ps...when describing your problem feel free to fully explain in as much detail as you can, including in this case what type of rear suspension system you have, 2WD, 4WD, AWD, your engine size etc. There is no limit to describing your problem.

Rear spring shock is broken on my pontiac montana van, year make 2002,is it easy to fix or how much will it cost,thank`s


I usually charge a base price on shocks and struts.to change shocks I charge around 30.00 or 40.00 dollars labor per pair.struts i charge 65.00 per pair.i'm cheeper than most guys because of the rural small town i live in here in alabama.but it may be your leaf spring not real sure by the discription,you could mean the shock,or the strut but it could mean the leaf spring which i think montanas have a shock and leaf spring set up not struts.i can't pull up my picture in my head too clearly,i've seen underneath hundreds of those vans just can't remember.hope i helped you with a price,don't let any body rip you off on the labor cause shocks are fairly easy to change.

do you have library card? might be your local public library subscribes to an online research database like mine does. the one i can use is called auto repair reference center. it's not as comprehensive as mitchell or alldata but it's free. the catch is you have to get to it through the library website and you have to have a valid library card number to get in. hope that helps.

91 Trooper leaf springs


ok what you have is just a multi leaf leaf spring. in the middle of the leaf where the axle should be a bolt that holds them together. you need to check the U bolts that hold the axle to the spring. there has to be a reason it moved . check the leaf spring for a broken leaf. i would recomend getting new Ubolts. and when you put it back together make sure you use the bolt that holds the leaves together as the center .
if ya need more help just let me know
if ya could snap a pic if you are having problems and send it i might be able to be more of a help.
