Good way to find out is to call the isuzu customer care line. If you have your owner's manual still you can look in the back for the phone number. Or you can google Isuzu and go to their website where you can contact them in several ways.

How to open the front differential on a chevrolet tracker, I took it donw, but don't know how to open it to remove or replace the bearings. thanks

The carrier comes out by removing the rear cover and axles.(consult a haynes or chilton manual for axle removal instructions) If you intend to replace the carrier or pinion bearings, before you start thinking about doing that be aware that you need torque wrenches, dial indicators and lots of experience in order to get it done correctly. Otherwise, you will spend lots of $ on parts and it will self-destruct within a week.
For about the same price as a complete bearing set, you can usually locate a complete used assembly (make sure gear ratio is exactly the same as the old one) . Then, just bolt it in, change the lube and go!!

I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler X. The rear differential I believe is a Dana 44.I want to buy a Ricmond locker for the rear diff, but I dont know how many splines the axle is? Can you help me?

Generally you can find that out by showing the ID tag to a parts guy at a dealer. However...after being fooled several times by tags that were not from the original diff I was working on, I use the tried and true method of actually removing the axle and counting the splines.
Up-grading to a positraction rear is a good idea but one thing to remember is that you need to re-set all clearances properly or the gears will quickly self destruct. A cheaper and easier swap is to find a complete differential in a scrapyard and install the entire unit (complete) Then, your only concern is that you exactly match the gear ratio of the one you are replacing (again, don't rely on the tag...count the gear teeth on the ring gear and pinion gear.) Posi units are sometimes difficult to locate but if yours isn't broken, you have time to search.

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.

Decifering the "build" codes on Toyota Tacoma

I would call the dealer parts dept. they should be able to tell you what you need to know. there may be a difference in gear ratio for each engine/ trans combination. A salvage yard may be able to help you , they should have a computer system showing what rear is compatible. there should be a code on the axle housing itself.

Want to know if i can put a differential from a 2007 tahoe on mi 2003 denali xl mine is lock

Look in the glove box and look at the GM PRO Code sticker. Look for the codes GU1=axle ratio 2.41 GU2=ratio 2.73 ect up to GU6=ratio 3.42 or it may be GV which is the rear axle ratio codes. As long as the codes on the Tahoe matched the Denali your good to go. Good luck and keep me posted, If you'll like me to let you know your rear axle ratio and if it's a locking or not just ask, be glad to help

I was just wondering if my 2001 chevy blazer has a rear lockin differental??

They were an option but you can find out by looking in your glove box's GM RPO Codes. It's the sicker on the inside of the glove box with numbers and letter.
Here are some listing on the gear ratio you may have,
U4: Rear Axle, 3.08 Ratio             U5: Rear Axle, 3.23 Ratio U6: Rear Axle, 3.42 Ratio 
If it is a GU the G stands for the rear Locking Differential.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Differential ratio

To determine gear ratio, divide the number of teeth on the ring gear by the number of teeth on the pinion gear. The total is expressed as a ratio: example # total= 3, ratio is 3 to 1. On a 4x4, this number must exactly match the ratio of the differential you are not changing.
In reality any differential can be installed in any vehicle providing that the ratios are correct. To install a complete axle assembly that was not made for the specific vehicle you have requires careful measurements regarding position of the differential yoke in realation to the driveshaft output on a transmission or transfer case, proper standing angle as well as length of axles and axle tubes. All can be modified to fit as necessary but the process is expensive. Typically, you can find a similar unit for your vehicle and match the ratio stamped on a tag found on the diff cover, but to avoid problems, always count the gear teeth and follow my instructions.

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.

Complete rear differential (rear axle) needed -HELP !!

How about a junk yard?
New are from dealers only, unless you search for one on the internet.
You have to keep the same ratio because of the ratio on the front diff.
