09 stang GT/CS conv. play in Rt.Rr wheel lugs r tight. I can move wheel and rotor in and out a lil bit. No grinding noise when wheel spins.


There may be a slight amount of end play in each rear wheel if rear wheel drive. This is normal axle end play with a solid axle. If the rear axles are CV joint type with a small differential, suspect a loose/worn wheel bearing/hub assembly

I dont know whar kind of vehicle or how many miles on it but if its rear wheel drive you can replace either. the rear end will cost more than an axle but if it has alot of miles on it plus you dont know about the rest of the componenents inside do the whole thing

What is the torque spec for rear axle nut bearings?


Ron, if you are talking about the nut on the end of the hub, it goes as follows. Tighten to 70 lbs-ft, then back nut off 90 degrees, check for side to side end play. Tighten until end play is 0, up to an additional 20 lb-in.
Hope that helps, it is right out of Ford workshop manual.

How do you remove the rear axle on a dodge ram 1500 p-up 2 wheel drive?


1st jack and use jack stands to safely lift the truck.disconnect brake lines and cables, remove tires,unbolt universal rear end to driveshaft, unbolt center bolts from axle to leaf springs, pull the rear end out from the side-much easier with two people. reverse process to put the new one on. I assume when you say axle you mean entire rear end. If you need to remove one axle side just take off tire and brake then remove rear end punkin cover and pull shear pin to remove your ring gear and planetary gear-pull axle shaft.

How to remove rear axel from ford crown victoria tne axel is loose and making noise leaking fluid i think it neds a new seal


do u mean the axle has "play" when u grab the tire and wiggle it up and down?? if it has play, then it propbably needs an AXLE SEAL AND AXLE BEARING.you will have to carefully inspect the axle itself where the bearing rides for any gouging or damage. THIS JOB requires a decent amount of mechanical skill. 1ST you need to remove the rear end COVER and drain out the gear oil into a drain pan.2ND remove the brake caliper and rotor . 3RD spin the" ring and pinion " around until u see a 5/16 bolt that passes thru from the pass. side to the drivers side. u have to remove this bolt. u will need to "hold "the gears from turning in order to break loose this bolt. 4TH remove this bolt and slide out the large metal ""PIN" that 'divides" the rear end in half. NOW CAREFULLY WITHOUT TURNING THE REAR END SPIDER GEARS,PUSH IN THE AXLE TOWARDS THE INSIDE SO U CAN REMOVE THE "C-CLIP" AT INNER END OF AXLE. now u can slide out axle and youll be able to replace seal and if needed axle bearing. let me know if u need more info.

Rear axle bearing lock washer and nut coming loose


You may have incorrect axle end play. The left axle is fitted with a 1mm shim and an o-ring between the bearing housing and diff flange. The right bearing housing should be shimmed to suit specs. If the right axle has too much end play, it may try to walk.
