Hiya Larry,
I think the best thing for you to do to save you any more money is to take the car to an expienced and reputable technician who can properly inspect and setup the rear end for you because if you don't you would be guessing on where to set it up! Good Luck and keep me updated if you can

I have a 98 Ford E150 conv. van need to replace complete rear end need to figure out which one I have and what yr will interchange and if a truck rear end work or only a van


Hello Brenda...you will find some identifying information on the actual real axle casing. Stamped numbers, I.D. tag or you can search your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) or make, model year and series on the internet to see what options were available for rear end gearing ratio's.

Yes you should stick with a similar or identical rear end to ensure proper mounting bracket alignment and gear ratio choices. Dana Model 60, 70 & 80 Axles are not internally identical.

Looks like the standard differential carrier for the E150 is a 8.8" (*10 bolt). Standard, Includes Spider gears, 31 spline, 7/8" shaft.

* Ten Bolt - The rear end cover plate contains 10 mounting plate bolt holes.

I have a 2002 Ford F 150 Supercrew. There is a whining noise in the rear axle. What causes this noise?


Fisrt thing to check is the differential fluid, make sure it is full up to the plug. If this is dry you could have ruined a bearing in the rear end. Next check all the rear axle bearings. Most likely it is the differential and the gears are dry and when they dry out they scorch and cause a noise like this.
If no issue found in the rear end it may possibly a bearing in the tranny. These noises travel through the steel and sometimes get confusing as to where they originate from.

Have a 1996 camaro SS speed. i have replaced the rear end and filled it with mobil 1 rear end fluid with the limited slip additive and it whines at around 70 mph and also vibrates pretty bad.


There are bearings in the rear diff that make a "whining" noise it can be repaired by replacing the bearings. Here is how its done;

1. Jack up the rear end and support if correctly with jack stands.
2. remove the wheels and expose the axles
3. remove the differential cover and drain the differential
4. rotate the main gear inside and expose the take down bolt. (8mm)
5. remove the take down pin in the spline drive. 8mm nut
6. remove the axles and remove the main gear. then take out the bearings.
7. replace the bearings and reinstall the components in reverse order.
8. refill the differential.

I have a 98 ford f150 4wd rear diff is howling bad under load and coast no noise at no load had bad rear axles and brgs even though i didnt think this would fix it i replaced them as i expected, no...


the bad bearings and axles probably caused damage or wear to the gears / pinion when under load the bearings keep the axles straight and keeps downward pressure from loads off the gears and gear bearings --look at gear mesh will probably be off very slightly and not from backlash shims but from ring gear bearings or pinion bearing damaged

When on a jack, the back wheels (axle) move side to side about 1/4" - 3/8". This is what I believe to be the source of a "clunk" noise when going over larger street bumps like RXR tracks etc. My wife...


Those axles are held into the rear gear housing by two c-clips, and kept separated by a steel pin that screws in between them. If your rear axle gears dont have proper lubrication, it will suffer wear and tear internally and likely have that type of sideways play you described. Replacing those parts requires you to have some knowledge of the gears inside that rear housing. It's not too difficult otherwise.

I need to remove the rear axles to 1996 ford bronco


remove rear cover from rear differential. catch nasty smelling oil (gear lube) in drain pan. remove bolt on side of carrier to be able to pull pin out from so called spider gears. if you have limited slip you may hve to pull S spring out from between side gears. then push axles in and remove C clips fom end of axles. then pull axles out. installation is in reverse of removal. make sure that the C clips are well installed in the groves whe reinstalling axles, or they could fall out and axles will come out while driving. bad deal.if you have limited slip get a bottle of friction modifier from parts store to put in there with new gear lube . is a small bottle like 6 to 8 oz.kepps clutch packs from chatering on turns.

Spider gears fell on rear differential 95 ford explorer


It's not easy to put them back, but if you get the side gears in position with the axles bumped out as far as you can, the smaller spider gears can be "walked" into place. Try having your buddy rotate one of the wheels slowly until each one fits in. It's tricky but you'll get it.

Hi meduck4,heres what you need brother as I cant see your diff, 3 ways to tell what you have:
#1 The first is the driver's door tag; there will be a one-letter or one-numeral axle code listed there. You can then compare it to the chart below: CODE Rear Axle Ratio Conventional Locking 8 M 2.73 Y Z 3.08 F R 3.45 5 E 3.27 6 W 3.73
#2 The second is the axle tag, attached to the lower lefthand bolt on the rear axle itself. The bottom left line will give you the gear ratio, and the type of rear end (S for limited slip non-locking, and L for locking).

#3 The 7.5" rear axle height is shorter than the width and the shape appears "oval".
The 8.8" rear axle
dimensions are equal and the shape appears "round".

This will tell you what you have my friend,good luck
