I had the same problem in my '94. Front rearend striped, all the bearing went, I lost my pinion gear, my spider gears all wrapped around themselves and shattered.. It was a mess. (I think a leak occured, causing things to get really hot! )

I tried fixing it, but the parts for new gears and such was very expensive.
I ended up just going to a scrap yard, buying the whole housing, and dropped the old front rearend out, and slipped the new one in. It's a little painful to do, Not hard though. It took three people to do mine, being we had to balance the housing on a jack and try to replace the bolts. New housing cost about $200, as opposed to roughly $600 for new gears, plus making sure everything is spaced right!

So buy a used housing, and just replace it.

The ONLY way is to replace the carrier (gears) Are you sure it's gears and not the axle shafts? Gears are pretty "bullet proof" and usually the only way to harm them is to run low or out of gear lube.

Are the gears in the rearend of a 4x4 truck the

Yes and No. All depends on what was ordered at the factory. They can be the same, but they may be differant. The glove box should have the gear ratios written down on the ID tag.

Rearend for a 1993 k1500 dont know how to find out the size

two ways this can be done.
1. in the gove box there is a build sheet a square
piece of paper thats glued on inside with a bunch
of three or four letter codes . call a dealer and they,
tell you which ones tell rearend info.
2. remove rearend cover , you will see veryis gears
count the teeth on the big gear on the left side,
write it down,count the teeth on the gear that comes from the drive shaft,write it down.
you can call dealer or divide the big gear[ring gear]
with the pinion gear the small gear that comes from
the drive shaft.

No signal from the input speed sensor

Yes you didn't give me code number, with out it my best guess is broken wire at vss sensor near rt drive axle there is a purple wire with a white stripe & a light geen wire with black stripe both in a black conduit pull out & pull on wire gently if they come apart you found it resolder or get new connector at GM dealer

Will 95 jeep gc rearend work in 97?

As long as they are the same rearend and the same gears, yes. ie a 9.25 rear with 3.92 gears will not work where a Dana 44 with 3.55 gears was.

Gear Ratio

there should be a tag on one of the rearend cover bolts indicating the ratio.if not remove cover count all the teeth on the ring gear and pinion,divide the ring gear # by the # of pinion teeth and that will be your ratio.

Sorry to tell you this really but there is not cheap fix. It needs a tranny shop and at minium will need a few gears and probably a clutch pack or too not too mention a complete cleaning and adjust service..AAMCO is reccomended
