    very vague question !!! Maybe you could be more descriptive as to your specific problem. Since anything can break !!

    There is a rotted-off bar of sorts that seems to connect the rear wheels to the chassis, or the axle?, something similar to the tyrods on the front end; causing the car to shake, rattle and roll down the road. What does one call that part?

  • redhawk25 May 30, 2010

    Thank you for answering, but for some reason i can't access the diagram; probably because i am so new to cyber-space. can you tell me what the names of some of those parts are?

How do you remove the rear axle or hub on a 1990 f700

Remove the nuts holding the axle to the hub. remove the lock washers. Hit the center of the axle with a 10lbs or 20lbs sledge hammer (careful not to hit axle studs) to break it free. Take a small screw driver and work wedged split cones between axle and axle studs out. Then axle can be removed.

Why do I have oil in my breaks of my 1996 Chevy

if your talking about the rear brakes its probably the differential axle seal that is leaking differential oil out of the rear end onto the brake shoes. you will have to pull the rear axle to replace the seal and clean the rear brakes/area with brake cleaner or replace the rear brakes if they are too soaked with brake fluid.

I am trying to remove the rear axle spindle from the drivers side of an '86 f150. I have the brake drum off and the four nuts off but there must be a retainer for the spindle along the axle or...

does it have a cover over the rear diff? If it does, you will need to take the cover off and find the small bolt (5/16") head on the carrier, take that bolt out (sometimes they break, IF it does not break off , replace it.If you do break it off, you will need a left hand drill bit and try to drill it out)) take bolt out and then slide the big pin out. then ypu will need to push the axle in, and you will see a large clip that looks like a big C at the end of the axle shaft, take that clip out and then the axle will slide out. Sometimes they will fall out, and you will see on the end of the shaft how they go on.

Right rear axle seal leaks

If only your axle seals are leaking then just remove one axel at a time. Take it to an automotive machine shop where they will press of the old seals bearings and reatainer and press on a new seal barring and reatainer all greased up and ready to slide back into place. No need to replace the whole axle for a leaky seal. Once this is done with both sides ( assuming both sides are leaking) refil the differential so the oil just starts to ooze out of the fill hole and replace the cap. Presto you are good to go. Also an important note. Make sure sure rear breaks are not soaked in 90W oil. This will impede your breaking ability and cause a dangerous situation. If the break pads are soaked they will most likely need to be replaced.

The housing where the rear axle bearing sits is bent up-ward slightly. This was caused by the axle breaking in half while being under to much stress. My question is will this cause problems when i replace...

Yes. It will keep the new axle under stress and probably break it again. Better to replace the housingat the same time. Check your local scrap yard for a used one.

sounds like to me a bearing is out are the rear axle is bent. jack up car on side that keeps breaking and roll the tire see if it moves side to side but it does have something to do with the axle.
