You need two jacks and jack stands (for safety while you are working under the truck)--one jack to lift the truck frame and the other to lift the axle to take the load off of the spring. Do only one side at a time.

    The appropriate response is to remove the offending bumper bracket. You could rent one of those mechanical 'farm' jacks that can jack up several feet.

I have a 1998 Ford ranger XLT, and when I start from a stop there is a "thunk" sound. Also when the transmission changes gears. "U" Joints?


U-joints would be one thing I would inspect. Check drive-shaft slip yoke for play, ring and pinion for slop, Also trans mount, engine mounts and rear leaf spring and shackle bushings.

Leak at rear diff (pinion seal?) 03 4X4 ford ranger


the part is called the pinion flange seal, pull the drive shaft, remove the large nut on the flange the drive shaft connects to and remove the flange, then pry out the old seal and lube the lip of the new seal with motor oil and press it into the opening. The 7.5 hour estimate is way wrong, about 1.5 hours labor and $4 for the part.
