Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

Jeep cherokee diff

I want to know how these new off set bearings work in a rear, for the 98 Cherokee sport Dana 35 diff. Apparently they have an off set which allows you to put them in and then they run on a different part of the axle. It means you dont need to fork out for new axle shafts.

Kindest regards Anthony

    Does this affect the performance of the diff? Does it mean the axles will be sitting out slightly further? If yes can you still get the C clips to fit in?

    Thanks for your help. If I may ask one last question?
    does that mean they offset on the inside of the axle?

Yes,it is a self contained bearing and seal together,that is off set,the bearing runs on a different part of the axle,and the seal,this way there is no leak,and the bearing rides on a smooth part of the axle,will save money,napa has the part real cheap too,ask for a pgb bearing,it is a power glide brand,I think it is like 15.00 dollars or less

    They do not affect the axle position,and they are great,they do not off set that much,and they do not move the axle or differential at all.

    The bearing is designed to off set not the differential,and not the axle.

What type of rear end could a jeep Cherokee have? not sure on the year? Maybe 2000?


Not a dana 44 I bet. Dana 30 or 35, perhaps. If you google rear axle identification your should find a chart which reveals all.

What size socket is needed to remove rear pinion nut on 1997 jeep grand Cherokee limited with a5.2 v8


the rear axle front pinion DANA 44 or AMC?
the answer is not simple , why not read the FSM and unstand it all.
experpted....
  1. On 1990-98 models, set bearing preload as follows:
    1. The required pinion gear bearing preload torque is 1/2 ft. lbs. over the noted release torque as measured above.
    2. Rotate the pinion gear three or four times with a torque wrench attached to the yoke nut. Measure the amount of torque necessary to rotate the pinion.
    3. Using a holding tool, tighten the yoke nut in small increments and remeasure until the specified torque is obtained.

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.

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

Complete rear differential (rear axle) needed -HELP !!


How about a junk yard?
New are from dealers only, unless you search for one on the internet.
You have to keep the same ratio because of the ratio on the front diff.
