Question about Jeep TJ

2004 Rubicon with TruLock diff (Dana 44). I pulled out the axles then the carrier in order to replace the left axle seal. I put it all back together but now the left front seems to be binding while turning. Can someone tell me what could be wrong?

Was it a paved surface? If so it's not good to drive in 4wd on dry pavement, especially turning. It will bind your axles, diffs and t-case and could break something! It will bind this way!
Try it on a dirty surface and see if that helps!

YOUR AXLE NOT COMPLETELY IN THE SIDE GEARS. THAT WILL CAUSE BINDING. DID YOU TAP THE AXLE SHAFT WITH A SOFT FACE HAMMER UNTIL SPLINES SEATS COMPLETELY IN THE DIFFERENTIAL SIDE GEARS.

    are you sure you drive the new seal in far enough and it went in straight if not that will cause binding.

Wanting to know if the Dana 30 front axle from a 2001 Grand Cherokee can replace the Dana 30 axle on a 2004 Wrangler?


dana 30 axles should be same all same
the only problem you will have to be aware of is the diff ratios
If the ratio is not the same , there is a real risk of front and rear diff failure or failure of the transfer case
you can overcome this by putting the diff from the bent axle housing into the new housing or have a transmission shop do it for you

Carrier removal dana 60,spicer 60


Are you a Mechanic? Did you pull the axles? Did you watch one of the many videos on youtube? There are tons of how to's on the net for differential rebuilding. They detail what you want to know. You need some special tools and better understand that if it isn't done correctly it will result in a very very expensive repair. i.e. replacing the whole axle. Start with the housing spreader if you have the axles pulled and the caps off. be careful though as that differential will squash your toes if you dont catch it.

Oil leak by back brake right side coming from axle seal need to replace seal donot no how to remove axle seal


Step 1, DO NOT follow the advice in Soultion #1.
You have to remove the axles to get to the bearing. If it's a C-Clip Dana 35C differential, remove the wheels and brake calipers and the 4 bolts holding the brake backing plate to the axle tube,remove the diff cover, drain the fluid, pull the C-Clip and remove the axle with a slide hammer or with the brake rotor put back on the wheel studs backwards. Dana 35C diffs the wheels bearings will stay in the axel tubes, go to Auto Zone and rent a bearing remover. If its a Dana 35 diff, take the axle to a machine shop and have the bearing pressed off and a new seal installed the have the bearing pressed back on.

1999 dodge cummins 2500 front axel seals


you need to pull off wheels,brakes, rotor /unit hub bearing, both axles and intermediate shaft, as well as the vac disconnec ton the front axle tube. if only the right side leaks then only then only pull the right axle and intermediate shaft and vac disco. it is a trick with a miller tool to replace the seal. the left side seal is inside the diff and the carrier has to come out to replace it. pete

-->All AMC 20s have a 8 7/8" R&P and use a 29 spline shafts. The AMC 20 R&P is 3/8" bigger than the Dana 44, but it uses smaller shafts, smaller axle tubes, and the CJ version comes with weaker two piece shafts. The AMC20 uses a 29 spline shaft where as the later Dana 44 uses a 30 spline shaft. The AMC 20 housing tends to flex a lot which can cause breakage. This can be remedied by welding the tubes and/or adding gussets. The reason the AMC 20 flexes more than the Dana 44 is the shorter differential housing and smaller axle tubes. It's other flaw is the CJ version uses the two piece axle made up of a hub and a shaft. The hub end tends to break off under load which has created the market for one piece AMC 20 axle shafts. Unfortunately, the shafts are expensive ($350+ USD) and in some cases a special bearing must be used.
amc20co_.gif -->Identifying the gear ratio of an AMC 20 is a bit tricky. Dana axles normally have a tag on the left of the diff cover with the gear ratio at the time of build. The AMC axles have a code that has to be looked up in a table. The code is stamped on the housing boss to the left of the diff cover right near the axle tube. Good part about the stamp is it tends to stay readable longer than the tag, but you have to know the code. Since there are conflicts between what a code means for a narrow track and what it means for a wide track, don't count solely on the code to identify an axle. Bring a tape measure or know the source of the part. Specs Narrow Track AMC 20 Code Gear Ratio Diff Type AA 2.73 Open DD 2.73 Trac-Lok BB 3.31 Open CC 3.31 Trac-Lok A 3.54 Open N 3.54 Trac-Lok GG 3.73 Open Q 3.73 Trac-Lok L 4.10 Open M 4.10 Trac-Lok Wide Track AMC 20 Code Gear Ratio Diff Type D 2.73 Open DD 2.73 Trac-Lok B 3.31 Open BB 3.31 Trac-Lok A 3.54 Open AA 3.54 Trac-Lok H 3.73 Open HH 3.73 Trac-Lok C 4.10 Open CC 4.10 Trac-LokThe Trac-Lok is a limited slip differential. You may have to scrape away a lot of mud, paint, and rust to uncover the code. If you can't find the code on the rear, check the tag on the front axle. Both axles should be geared the same. The R&P ratio ranges supported by the carriers are 2.73 and 3.31-5.13. The 5.13 gear ratio is not available for the Dana 30 though, so it is rare to see it. 4.56s are the lowest common ratio between the Dana 30 and AMC 20. 5.13s are available for the Dana 44.
CJ AMC 20 The CJs used two versions of the AMC 20, the narrow track from '76-'81 and the wide track from '82-'86. Both versions use keyed, two piece shaft/hub design and 5 on 5.5" wheel bolt pattern. Supplies of AMC 20s were exhausted in 1986 and some Dana 44s were used instead in the last of the CJ-7s.
From 1976-1978 a larger 11x2" drum brakes was used on the AMC 20. After 1978, a 10x1.75" drum was used.
SJ AMC 20 The Wagoneer and full size Cherokee also used a narrow and wide track version of the AMC 20. Both SJ versions used once piece shafts and 6 on 5.5" wheel bolt pattern. Since the length and bolt pattern is different from the CJ version, the SJ shafts are not compatible without resplining and redrilling. I've never heard of anyone going to the trouble.

How to remove carrier bearing


U must remove the axles, to do this pull the diff cover off, then remove the pin that retains the large center pin that is between the spider gears, pull the axles out far enough to clear diff carrier, remove left and right carrier bearing caps, mark the adjustment sims and caps (very important) as to which side they came from, u will most likely need to have a press to remove and install the new carrier bearings, they are pressed on, when u reinstall put the shims back in with a brass hammer or large brass drift punch, they are cast iron and break very easily, make sure to use the proper gear lube, do not overfill, also replace the axle seals and check the axle bearings for wear, I will bet they are worn out as well, the rule really is that if one bearing goes south then the metal from that will ruin the rest of the bearings, in the shop we recommend all differential bearings be done, if not we can't guarantee the job.

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.
