Question about 2001 Jeep Cherokee
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.
