    I've found out that Nissan doesn't make spare spider gears nor does anyone else for the titan. Have to buy a whole new diff. Just ordered a truetrac diff and bearings from performance offroad center. Much better deal than through the stealership

Titans are known for weak rear ends. Contact an independent shop that rebuilds truck transmissions; look in the Yellow Pages.have them rebuild it; it'll be done right. Trade the truck for a Toyota Tundra, Tacoma, Ford or Chevy.

Best way to fix front rearend gears are striped

the ONLY way is to replace the carrier (gears) Are you sure it's gears and not the axle shafts? Gears are pretty "bullet proof" and usually the only way to harm them is to run low or out of gear lube.

How do you replace the rear axle seal?

Its easiest to buy a hanes manual for this vehicle for this repair. Here goes. Remove the tire and wheel. Remove the drum if drum brakes or brake caliper and rotor is its disc brakes. remove the cover on the rear differential. remove the small bolt that holds the lock pin in place. slide the lock pic out of the spider gears. **its very important not to let the ring and spider gears turn at this point or the spider gears will fall out of the carrier. Once the lock pin is removed then go around to the axle where the tire was and push it in (toward the rear end) as far as it will go. Go back to the differential and remove the retainer clip (looks like a big "C") from the axle shaft. You can now pull the axle completely out of the housing. At this point you will be able to see the axle seal and the wheel bearing located behind the seal. Carefully remove the old seal (be sure not to damage the wheel bearing) and install the new one. You can then put everything back together. Make sure to refill your differential with oil when everything is back together. check your owners manual for the exact gear oil that you need because these cherokees can use different types depending on the model and towing capacity.

Spider gears shot

No you can replace the gears by removing the differential cover. Remove the gear pin and slightly pull the axles out of the gears. unbolt the drive shaft from the differential first you will then be able to move the gears so you can get at the pins.

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.
