It shouldn't be difficult to find a replacement in a local scrapyard for a decent price. Though the unit itself is a bit heavy, removal is fairly straight forward... just unbolt anything you see holding it in, put the new unit in its place and replace the bolts. Buy a "drum to drum" unit including brake assemblies,
only thing you may need to swap is the abs sensors from your old one. Make sure you bleed the brakes after it's installed. You can get an inexpensive manual such as chilton or haynes for specific instructions if you have any problems (available in most larger parts stores).
If you have four wheel drive make sure the unit you buy has the exact same gear ratio as the one you are removing. (count the number of gear teeth on the ring gear and pinion gear). If not 4x4, you can use any ratio but if you are happy with what you have, match it. If the one you buy isn't a match, it will change the perceived speed and therefore the speedometer will read incorrectly and possibly the abs system may "think" there's a problem and turn the light on the dash on.

Are you sure it isn't just a u-joint, or the pinion bearing? The whole rear end is going to be pricey, unless you can get one from an auto wrecker.

At times feels like driving on rippling surface and can feel it in the gas pedal


Nearly 100% sure that you have a failed gasket in your transmission, causing the transmission pump to suck air instead of transmission fluid. CHECK YOUR TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL, and consider having a standard transmission service performed as soon as possible (fluid and filter change).
Also, if you have recently had a transmission service done, they left out a small gasket (I've had that happen before).

Why does my 2002 pt cruiser make a popping sound from the rear passenger side when turning. Is something about to fall off?


if it only does this during turning could be a few things, possible control are bushings, tie rod/rod ends, ball joints, or axle granted the axel usually is a clicking sound not popping but has been known to pop also if its ball joints or tie rods/rod ends it take a long time and really bad wear to come apart but generally doesn't happen very often so don't worry about anything falling off just check those things listed and replace what it is soon and you will be fine

hope this helped

1996 Ford Thunderbird LX V8 Automatic Transmission shudder


Check rear emergency brakes if you have 4 wheel discs. When soot and brake lining fall to bottom of assembly they jam and shudder until wheels start rolling fast enough to scatter debris.

Also if posi equipped there is a needed rear-end additive to help clutch plates work. Perhaps clean rear-end lube and additive is needed.

What makes my 2002 Pontiac Firebird grind when driving and/or turning?


Sounds like a wheel bearing. Jack up front end and spin wheels by hand and listen for grind. Same for rear wheels. Make sure brake linings are good all around. Do the swerve test. Drive down road bout 40mph and swerve moderately one side to other. If noise gets louder with weight shifted to one side more than other its most likely a wheel bearing.

Loud ping in transmission shifting from reverse to drive, automatic also noise in transmission while shifting.


It is possible you have u-joints that are failing. You should be able to have someone get underneath the vehicle and check your drive shaft at both ends. (transmission and differential. Also make sure your vehicle is not idling higher than normal. If this is not the issue, you should see a transmission shop. Read the reports on them before going to thier shop. There are a lot of crappy ****** shops out there. There should be reorts on the web that you can research and find a good reliable shop.

Oil leaking between gearbox and driveshaft


sounds like transmission rear seal. Any good shop can replace fairly inexpensively. Unless you have tools, just undo driveshaft at rear-end, yoke slides out of transmission. With a seal puller, pops out, tap in new one with mallard and reinstall driveshaft.

Need to know how to drop a drive shaft to tow the 1999 Lincoln to go from Fla to Texas


You need to jack the back end up and place it on jack stands. then make a paint mark on the driveshaft and the rear end yoke, so when you put it back in, it will be "match marked" to the same spot. This is for proper balance. Then just unbolt the Ujoint from the rear yoke. Be sure to wrap something around the joint o the caps don't fall off the universal joint. Once it is loose from the rear end you can slide it out of the transmission. I would suggest covering the hole in the tranny also for transport. Some transmission fluid might come out of the rear when you remove the driveshaft.

I lost reverse.. in my 98 chevy blazer... 2 wheel drive...


The transmission is a 4L60E. The best bet is to see how much a transmission shop would to be rebuild it. Rebuilding a transmission is a daunting task and professionalism is something you need for transmissions. I have worked on many cars trucks and semis and a transmission is one of those things you have to bear a brunt of getting done by someone else. If you do not need your blazer for every day driving rebuilding a transmission is a good thing to learn just remember to take pictures of everything and mark and lable and bag and tag everything. I wish you the best of luck!
