Rear differential problem

That's because there is no pressure when you let off and the clutches dissengage.Dodge Ram rear ends are a "chronic" problem if you read up on them a little.IMHO,if you feel the truck is worth keeping then either find someone that can pull the nest and take a look inside.Odds are (to spare the technical explaination) it wore right through and is not even rebuildable... If it were me,I'd find a "rebuilt" as opposed to buying a used one from salvage yard and ending up "exactly" where you are right now... Best of luck P.S. If possible try avoid obtaining a posi-traction and you may have considerably better luck with longivity...(you can learn the type by VIN# and calling dealer)

Rear differential

If the rear end has a wine after a rebuild it is more than likely set up (shimmed) incorrectly. Take to a reputable mechanic who specializes in rear differentials. Some new gears will whine regardless of shim, but should be somewhat quieter than a bad rear end. If the gear pattern is correct look to the outer axel bearings.

My transaxle lost all fluids and all the barrings are gone. Would it be better to have it rebuilt or replace the rear end?

Replace it. If the bearings are gone, then it ate the **** out of the differential also.

It alot of information to work with. No make, year, engine or transmission. Most wranglers came with a Dana 30 front differential and a Dana 35 rear. Hope this helps.

Want to change gears in rear end for posi traction in a 98 gmc25000 is this possible?

It is possible, you just have to know what gear ratio you have in your Sierra. I had issues with my son's rear differential and did the Salvage Yard and picked one up for $250.00 with less then 45,000 miles. Remember new cars end up at Salvage Yards also.

Here are the Pro code for the rear ends to your Sierra and you can match one up at a Salvage Yard.


Open Your glove box and look inside it. Should be a list of codes on the bottom.
Example: GU6 G80 According to that, you'll have a 3.42 posi

Good luck and keep me posted and call around Salvage Yards, there prices will differ from one to the next salvage yard and don't ask them for a posi rear end. The cost will you more, just search all the SUV's and look at the pro codes in the glove box. Hunt, most awd system SUV will have the G80 rear end.

Good luck and keep me posted.

Rear Differential

The mechanic is right, you should fix it before the differential back there either locks up or strips teeth, in either case you will be stranded. Probably your best bet is to check out a used, complete rear end, and install it. One major precaution if you go this way, you must replace yours with the exact same ratio. There should be a tag under one of the cover bolts which will show your ratio. He is also right about rebuilding with new parts, and in addition to cost of parts, is hard to find someone who is qualified to set it up once repairs are made. Rebuilding rear ends requires special training, and many mechanics do not have it.
