What could cause a rear differential Chevy posi-traction - limited slip 3:73 ratio, to make a loud slipping sound, it shudders, shakes the vehicle.I hit a concrete pole with the rear tire


Answer - at a guess - hitting a concrete pole ??? It sounds like you have done some serious internal damage to the diff - take it to a diff repair shop to get a diagnosis??

I'm looking to replace the rear axle on my 1997 4 door 4x4 GMC Yukon 3.73 gears would a rear axle from a 1998 Yukon 4door 4x4 with 3.73 gears bolt directly to my 1997 Yukon


yes
the housings will be the same
clue here --if the diff center comes into the housing from the front not a problem
if it comes in from the rear ( tin cover removed ) replace the complete housing as you will have to have expertise in resetting the bearing pre-loads for the diff center bearings

2000 3.0 ford 4x4 ranger front end is binding up when driving forward and unbinds in reverse.is it a cv axle or vacuum hub assembly.


4 X 4 vehicles are only meant to be in 4 wheel drive on loose surfaces
on hard surfaces where the tires are not permitted to slip there is a torque wing up in the transmission , drive shafts and diffs
this results in hard gear shifting, noisy drive lines and early failures in drive shaft, diffs and transmissions
if you go far enough in reverse it will start to bind up again

If your driving on sealed roads with 4wd engaged it will bind up the drive train and cause these issues.

Can you switch a rear diff from a 1997 subaru legacy wagen with a 2.2l inter changeable with a 1997 subaru legacy outback with a 2.5l ?


the biggest draw back that you will have to check first is the ratio of the diffs you want to change. If they are not the same but will fit then you will destroy the 3rd diff in the transmission from excessive use.

1997 Mazda MPV just purchased and did not come with owners manual. Has electronic 4wd on column stick... What gear does it need to be in to engage 4wd or can it be done while driving??? Also shows Diff...


I have one of these vans you can put it in 4x4 anytime while driving or stopped or taken out of 4x4. the diff lock does not have to be on to have 4x4 .this **** locks in the rear diff,giving you all 4 wheels,this diff **** should be pushed when stopped,and taken out when stopped,it is always taken out before the 4x4 is . ps the 4x4 light on the dash should not be blinking if it is your acuator is stuck it can be freed up for 30.00
