If you look at the cover on the diff, there should be a tin tag on one of the bolts. Clean it and read it. Near the bottom, starting near the bolt hole there will be numbers. This will indicate gear rato and ring gear diameter. If the tag is missing, your only alternative is to remove the cover.

remove the rear cover all the bolts except the top 1 just loosen that 1. Put a bucket under the rear diff and open the diff cover and drain out the fluid. clean and reseal the diff. remove the plug on the front of the diff and fill with the correct diff fluid until it is filled up to the hole and replace the plug, clean up and check for leaks. No leake = job is complete.

All the bearings for the rear diff are pressed off and on, they can be done at home if u have a high quality bearing puller, but to press them on should be done at the machine shop.

2003 rear differential


I am a Ford tech and the diff doesn't need to be serviced (new lube) unless it is torn down or it has a leak, however it is my opinion that under heavy usage such as towing it should be serviced at around 60,000.

Well the passenger side axle just slides right out when pulled on. But the drivers side(the shorter axle of the two) has a clip inside the diff that you have to take out in order to get the axle out. Pulling the diff out is very easy, disconnect the front driveshaft and there is a bolt on the left side of the diff you have to take out and then the front cover bolts.
hope that helps
