SOURCE: how do i fix a posi rebuild and a limited slip.

Rebuilding any differential requires experience and skill as well as the ability to use dial indicators etc. It is one of those jobs that if you need to ask how, you should not be doing it. Even a small mistake can result in the unit self destructing in a very short time. Positraction diffs are a bit difficult to locate, especially when you need to exactly match the ratio of the one in the front, but far easier to install a drum to drum unit than to rebuild what you have. This is by no means an insult...I know many very good techs that either just do a swap on their own vehicles or send their unit out to someone with a very good reputation that does rebuilds.

SOURCE: I have a 1994 chevy k1500 4x4 and need to change pitman arm

Take the bolts out that attach the steering box to the frame and pivot the box so you can fit the puller on.
Leave the steering shaft and power steering hoses attached.
Mark the new pitman arm and old one in the same place and mark the pitman shaft to keep the same position of the new pit man arm on the old shaft as the old pitman arm.

I have a 2002 jeep liberty limited 3'7l and I need help with my differential, the rear one keeps making a clunking sound when I drive it. It always happens at random. Could anyone help?

With not actually hearing or inspecting.. I would check; u- joints ,pinion bearings,fluid level,. If limited slip differential has not been serviced I would get the service done, If the service was
recently performed, add the limited slip additive, I have seen different size tires or miss matched tires cause the same concern.

My back passenger wheel skips and squeal when i turn right

You might want to check your differential fluid. I think those vehicles have limited slip rearends in them. It might need some limited slip additive. I know it is a Chevy but Motorcraft limited slip additive is the best.

I have a 1994 Chevy S10 Blazer bad reverse

The odds of two different transmissions having the same problem in reverse is astronomical. I think your problem is in the differential. Also check for the proper fluids and additives in the differential.

K1500 342. how much rear end grease does it take

Be sure to confirm the type of gear oil required by your vehicle's rear differential. Some differentials require special additives to ensure correct operation of the limited-slip components. Failing to add the correct amount of additive and/or use the correct type of gear oil can lead to premature wear, poor functioning, and potential break-down.
