Axle Housing Assembly Removal & Installation To Remove:
Exploded view of the rear axle mounting I need to add 80-90W - 88457g85.gif

  1. Raise and support the rear of the vehicle safely using jackstands under the frame. Position a floor jack or a second set of jackstands to support the rear axle housing. If a floor jack is being used, take care when removing the U-bolts to keep the axle from suddenly dislodging.
  2. Remove the rear wheels and drums for clearance and to remove some weight from the axle housing.
  3. If equipped, remove the axle vibration dampener.
  4. Matchmark and remove the rear driveshaft from the pinion flange. Either remove the shaft completely from the vehicle or support it aside from the undercarriage using safety wire, but DO NOT allow the shaft to hang from the slip joint.
  5. Remove the shock absorber-to-axle housing retainers, then swing the shock absorbers away from the axle housing.
  6. Disconnect the brake lines from the axle housing clips and the backing plates (wheel cylinders). NOTE: When disconnecting the brake lines from the wheel cylinders, immediately plug or cap the lines to prevent system contamination or excessive fluid loss.
  7. If applicable, unplug the speed sensor connectors at the junction block.
  8. Disconnect the parking brake cable(s).
  9. Disconnect the axle housing-to-spring U-bolt nuts, washers. U-bolts and the anchor plates.
  10. Remove the vent hose from the top of the axle housing.
  11. Remove the axle with the help of an assistant by moving it to clear the leaf spring, or if desired, the leaf springs can be disconnected from the frame at the rear end to lower the axle down and back, but first refer to the leaf spring procedures for information regarding spring installation and removal.
To Install:
  1. With the help of an assistant, carefully position the rear axle into the vehicle.
  2. Connect the vent hose to the axle housing.
  3. Be sure the housing is properly positioned on the leaf spring, then loosely install the U-bolts, anchor plates, washers and nuts.
    • Tighten the U-bolt nuts in a cross pattern to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm) to make sure everything is evenly seated. Then tighten the nuts in steps to 41 ft. lbs. (55 Nm) on 1994-95 models or 74 ft. lbs. (100 Nm) on 1996 and later models.
  4. Remove the caps from the brakes lines then connect the lines and secure them to the axle housing.
  5. If removed, connect the parking brake cable(s).
  6. If applicable, attach the speed sensor connectors to the junction block.
  7. Align and install the driveshaft assembly. Refer to the procedure earlier in this section for details.
  8. Install the shock absorbers to the lower mounts, then tighten the mount nuts.
  9. If equipped, install the axle vibration dampener.
  10. Install the brake drums and the tire/wheel assemblies.
  11. Properly refill the brake master cylinder and bleed the hydraulic brake system.
  12. Check the fluid level in the rear axle assembly and add, as necessary. Make sure the vehicle is level when checking and adding fluid.
  13. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the truck.

Front and rear diff on olds bravada I was wondering if I should drain and add gm fluid with gm additive


if the diff oils is in need of a change then it would be wise to change the oils
if the additive is an approved GM additive then it will not hurt to add it
just make sure that the diff's are not limited slip diffs as they require a special oil and then the additive may not be suitable for the oils

Jeep cherokee rear differential


diff overheating is from incorrect mesh of the crownwheel and pinion
that can be from too little clearance , too much clearance of failing bearings and too much preload on the pinion bearings
it can also be from incorrect oil level in the diff to the bottom of the threads of the fill plug
it is time to pull the diff and check the bearings
the problem will most likely be the bearing behind the pinion as that one takes all the load
diffs normally run hot but it is the escaping oil that is the problem
that could be from bearings on the pinion allowing the lip of the flange seal to not seal properly

I had a leaking rear diff cover so I dropped the oil and clean the cover and the rear diff where the cover mates up and silconed the cover and reinstalled and then it start leaking out the front of the...


If the seal is leaking, it will need to be replaced, if you have a service manual, it will show you the procedure to replace the seal. DO NOT try to replace the seal without following the proper guidelines as input bearing damage can occur. After the repairs are made, be sure to to clean the vent tube/valve on the diff. to avoid pressure build up that will cause early seal failure, this vent should also be cleaned at every oil change.

How do i change the gear oil in the rear end diff on a 85 chevy c20 3/4 ton and how many quarts will i need also it has a 14 bolt diff cover.


A stock 14 bolt rear end hold about 3 quarts. To drain the differential you will have to pull the rear cover. I jack up one end of the axzle and let drain for a while and then the other end for a while. This assures you get as much of the old fluid out as possible. After the case is drained replace the rear cover with a new gasket(I usually just use permatex ultra blue silicone). Refill the case through the fill plug located on the side of the pumpkin. Fill until the fluid starts to come back at you through the hole. Be sure to check if you have a posi or limited slip differential because you will need to add an additive to make either of these work properly. Make sure to add the additive before you top off the fluid so you don't overfill the case. I generally drive 50-100 miles and then recheck the level to make sure it is full.

Cant find where to add new oil to the rear end. found the plug down low to see if you have oil in rear end but see no place to add new oil!


You have to add the new fluid through that same inspection hole, until it starts to overflow. It is about halfway up the middle of the rear diff, exactly where the oil level has to be.

HOW DO I REMOVE REAR DIFF FROM MY 1994 LAND ROVER DISCO


Remove the halfshafts, the rear propshaft, the ring of bolts holding the diff in the axle and pull it out, drain the oil first.
But i must say, if you need help on how to remove the diff, then you obviously have no mechanical knowledge,, so what are you doing pulling out the diff. do you know how to repair and set up diffs ?

Refill gear oil in rear differential on 2003 ford mustang gt


The differential will have a plug in the driver's side of the housing that is removed with a 3/8" drive ratchet or square drive. Be sure you know what type of fluid is recommended for your vehicle. It will depend on whether it is a locking differential or standard.

Rear diff whining noise


Give the old man a pat on the back! There is an oil plug on the rear differential. On a level surface, remove the plug; if oil starts to flow out, the fluid is full. If no oil flows, carefully put your finger in the hole and feel for the oil level. Your finger should go no lower than the first knuckle before you feel oil. If it goes further, you are low on oil and should either fill it up or better yet replace it. Rear axle oil doesn't get replaced nearly often enough in most vehicles and since your truck is 18 years old, would be a bad idea to have it changed. Best of luck.

Rear diff leak on yoke of 2000 explorer


To replace the seal you must pull out the carrier assembly and the pinion gear and install a new crush sleeve if you do it by the book, I have found that if the yoke is removed a new seal installed and the yoke tightened to about 50 foot lbs of torque it is ok, as far as the lube goes there is a plug on the cast case of the diff, it will either be a square drive plug or a large allen plug, fill the diff so you can just touch the fluid with your little finger, don't overfill or the axle seals will start leaking.
