Ive got a towed in right rear wheel on a 04 pt cruiser rear quarto wreck where more than likley should i start looking to get this wheel straight axle spindle watts link or complete rear end change

Unibody should be checked @ a body shop that has measuring system to check length, width, height. If thats good replace rear suspension then get vehicle aligned. It will be safe and won't wear out your tires prematurely.

Growling sound when moving. Vibration can be felt in the pedals and the front floor. My dad thought it was a wheel bearing but a local oil change and repair shop says it is the differential. Could that be...

Well, both of these are good ideas to check. It would be worth checking the wheel bearing by putting the front end on jack stands and feeling for play. If you are willing to take a little time and pull the axle shaft you can see if the axle bearing is bad too. Replacment parts including wheel bearing, axle bearing and the new differential fluid should be under $200. If you take it to a good shop expect about $400 in labor totaling about $600-700. Good luck Joe

Spider gear grinding gone in differential. should all parts be replaced including axles? Happened on highway a high speed.

If the splines on the axles are damaged I would recommend changing them. Another alternative is to change the complete rear end , used from a wrecking yard.

Want to change gears in rear end for posi traction in a 98 gmc25000 is this possible?

It is possible, you just have to know what gear ratio you have in your Sierra. I had issues with my son's rear differential and did the Salvage Yard and picked one up for $250.00 with less then 45,000 miles. Remember new cars end up at Salvage Yards also.

Here are the Pro code for the rear ends to your Sierra and you can match one up at a Salvage Yard.


Open Your glove box and look inside it. Should be a list of codes on the bottom.
Example: GU6 G80 According to that, you'll have a 3.42 posi

Good luck and keep me posted and call around Salvage Yards, there prices will differ from one to the next salvage yard and don't ask them for a posi rear end. The cost will you more, just search all the SUV's and look at the pro codes in the glove box. Hunt, most awd system SUV will have the G80 rear end.

Good luck and keep me posted.

Clanging noise rear and rear don't pull

The axle probably lost a keeper ring on the inside of the differential and the pieces may be going through the differential and ring&pinion gearing making the noises you hear. You will need to drain the oil out, find the broken pieces, and inspect all gearing for broken/damaged teeth, and for any noisy bearings. Flush the case out with cleaning solvent. Re-insert the loose axle after cleaning and inspecting it well--especially the interior end. Replace the keeper (new) on the axle end inside the differential spider gearing. Inspect the brakes on the loose axle side for any oil deposits and for any damage that might have been caused when the axle came out. If the differential is badly damaged, it might be cheaper to find another rear end in a wrecking yard. Hope this helps!

2000 impala, heater fan intermittent. When fan is not working also have no cruise or rear defrost.

Could be a relay switch, check the fuse area and look for a larger square looking fuse or have it checked but get used one at wrecking yard,,real cheep there. Relays are fairly expensive new. About $20 bucks each. I've bought some at wreckers for just a few dollars. Easy to install, like a fuse.
Hope this helps.

Cracked rear axle tube.

Ouch. It sounds like truck was overloaded with too much weight by previous owner.
Time to go to scrap yard and pick up a used rear axle assembly. Take it apart and check it for cracks before you reinstall it.

Need to get axles off a 2005 Nissan Titan

Two choices. Find an axle assy from a wrecked truck, or if your ring/pinion gears are OK, install Detroit Locker TrueTrac to replace spider gears. Good luck.

Bad rear axle bearing with probable damage to inner bearings

If you have a bad bearing than there is probably metal throughout the whole rear end. I would contact a toyota wrecking yard and price a complete rear end for your vehicle. Search online for a toyota wrecking yard in your area. A complete rear end will be around $600 dollars.
