Jack up both rear wheels then turn one by hand if the opposite wheel turns in the same direction you are turning it is a posi. If it either does not turn, or turns in the opposite direction it's not. (do this in neutral)
If still in doubt, have someone try to hold the opposite wheel and do it again. If they can hold the wheel without it turning it's not a posi.

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

Jeep wheel bearings and rear carrier bearings


As long as the diff itself was not noisy and there aren't a bunch of metal flakes floating in the lube, I suggest you pretty much leave the carrier alone. Just do the axle work, use good lube in there and be done with it.

-->All AMC 20s have a 8 7/8" R&P and use a 29 spline shafts. The AMC 20 R&P is 3/8" bigger than the Dana 44, but it uses smaller shafts, smaller axle tubes, and the CJ version comes with weaker two piece shafts. The AMC20 uses a 29 spline shaft where as the later Dana 44 uses a 30 spline shaft. The AMC 20 housing tends to flex a lot which can cause breakage. This can be remedied by welding the tubes and/or adding gussets. The reason the AMC 20 flexes more than the Dana 44 is the shorter differential housing and smaller axle tubes. It's other flaw is the CJ version uses the two piece axle made up of a hub and a shaft. The hub end tends to break off under load which has created the market for one piece AMC 20 axle shafts. Unfortunately, the shafts are expensive ($350+ USD) and in some cases a special bearing must be used.
amc20co_.gif -->Identifying the gear ratio of an AMC 20 is a bit tricky. Dana axles normally have a tag on the left of the diff cover with the gear ratio at the time of build. The AMC axles have a code that has to be looked up in a table. The code is stamped on the housing boss to the left of the diff cover right near the axle tube. Good part about the stamp is it tends to stay readable longer than the tag, but you have to know the code. Since there are conflicts between what a code means for a narrow track and what it means for a wide track, don't count solely on the code to identify an axle. Bring a tape measure or know the source of the part. Specs Narrow Track AMC 20 Code Gear Ratio Diff Type AA 2.73 Open DD 2.73 Trac-Lok BB 3.31 Open CC 3.31 Trac-Lok A 3.54 Open N 3.54 Trac-Lok GG 3.73 Open Q 3.73 Trac-Lok L 4.10 Open M 4.10 Trac-Lok Wide Track AMC 20 Code Gear Ratio Diff Type D 2.73 Open DD 2.73 Trac-Lok B 3.31 Open BB 3.31 Trac-Lok A 3.54 Open AA 3.54 Trac-Lok H 3.73 Open HH 3.73 Trac-Lok C 4.10 Open CC 4.10 Trac-LokThe Trac-Lok is a limited slip differential. You may have to scrape away a lot of mud, paint, and rust to uncover the code. If you can't find the code on the rear, check the tag on the front axle. Both axles should be geared the same. The R&P ratio ranges supported by the carriers are 2.73 and 3.31-5.13. The 5.13 gear ratio is not available for the Dana 30 though, so it is rare to see it. 4.56s are the lowest common ratio between the Dana 30 and AMC 20. 5.13s are available for the Dana 44.
CJ AMC 20 The CJs used two versions of the AMC 20, the narrow track from '76-'81 and the wide track from '82-'86. Both versions use keyed, two piece shaft/hub design and 5 on 5.5" wheel bolt pattern. Supplies of AMC 20s were exhausted in 1986 and some Dana 44s were used instead in the last of the CJ-7s.
From 1976-1978 a larger 11x2" drum brakes was used on the AMC 20. After 1978, a 10x1.75" drum was used.
SJ AMC 20 The Wagoneer and full size Cherokee also used a narrow and wide track version of the AMC 20. Both SJ versions used once piece shafts and 6 on 5.5" wheel bolt pattern. Since the length and bolt pattern is different from the CJ version, the SJ shafts are not compatible without resplining and redrilling. I've never heard of anyone going to the trouble.

2000 jeep wrangler are sythetic lubes used in axils and trans


Hello grega1967, your Jeep Wrangler came from the factory with gear oil in the axles and manual transmission, but the transfer case uses transmission fluid. It is a NP231 and your axles are Dana 30 in the front and Dana 35 in the rear. They should have a 4.10 gear ratio due to you having a 2.5 liter 4 cylinder.

I hope this helps,

REAR AXLE


There is a tag on the cover of the diff. It will say the type and axle ratio. If the diff. cover looks sort of like a stop sign, then it's a dana 44 rear. A oval shape(an oval on it's side) is a dana 35.

I have a 2003 jeep tj sport wrangler, with a six cylinder, 5 speed standard trans wondering what size diffs are in it


You most likely have a Dana 30 front and a Dana 35 rear, unless you have the towing pkg. which would be evident by rear disc brakes and a rear center section that is almost stop sign shaped. The gearing in your Jeep can be determined by the tags on the diff covers but it is most likely that you have 3.07 gears unles you have the towing pkg. in which case you would have 3.73
