How do I remove the rear end


It's really pretty simple. Jack the truck up and rest it on jackstands on the frame of the truck. Remove the wheels, brake calipers "if it's disc brakes drums if it's drum brakes" remove the brake cable from the park brake assembly, remove the brake fluid lines from the wheel cylinders if it's drum brakes, remove the bolts holding the driveshaft to the rear yoke, remove the bolts holding the rear end to the leaf springs while the rear end is supported with the jack and then slowly let the jack down.... It's out!

Why does my 2000 ford ranger seem to slide when stopping at a stop sign it is not sliding but appears and feels like it is on ice


Broken rear leaf spring, bad motor or transmission mount. Broken frame or brake proportionate valve.

Truck creaks/goans as I go over rough road or pull into my parking spot... I have taken it in and no one knows what it is, they have fixed bushings, but nope, that wasn't it... Feels like it is belo


Check your ball-joints. There are pros and cons to guessing different components. What I visualize is that you have low motion noise{slow approach to parking spot) and noise going over rough roads(no clutch, no braking).

There was a recall on some gas tank straps, which a rough road could reveal, but it would not affect going into a parking spot. Check rear leaf springs for cracked leafs. The truck body settles when parking and driving motion could make broken leaf spring chirp.

Check motor mounts. The exhaust pipes and joints in what is called the "donut" can chirp if the tailpipes are rigid and the engine moves on bad mounts. The donut becomes the only flexible connection in the exhaust system.

I am buying a 2001 Ford F150 with a broken frame near rear leaf spring mounts. Can I still drive it like this?


NOT a real good idea to drive a vehicle with a broken frame. It's not safe. It will affect the drivablity of the vehicle, including the steering and braking ability. Better to take vehicle to a welding shop to see if the frame can be repaiered.

When I put the car in drive the back end bounces and their is a rubbing noise


Both of my big Ford trucks had to have the rear leaf spring mounts replaced. Look at your rear springs - if they are leaf style then check the rear mount points to see if they have broken loose. The springs end up moving way too much and it is not safe.

My rear leaf springs have rusted off the frame in the rear, is there anyway to fix? The part that is rusted off is where the leaf spring connects to the frame.


a 10 year old car with a rusted frame? i would call ford and complain, but look in the yellow pages under welders,and see if one of them can fabricate you a piece and weld it on, so you can re-attach the leaf springs

Truck has clunking sound when driven on rough road or bumps 92 ford 2 wheel drive 302 super cab


Is the clunking form the body reaction to the bumps or is through the transmission. What ever sounds like some rubber is missing. Look at frame to body mounts, spring to frame mounts and anti roll bar mounts, basically anything that isolates something that moves from something that should be solid. On the transmission look at rubber prop couplings and universal spiders along with gearbox and engine mounts. Finally check the shock absorber mounts for wear

My rear end has dropped and looks crazy and will not lift


Do you have:
1. Shocks and Leaf Springs?
If so: the Shocks could be "shot" and/or broken or completely discharged. OR the Leaf Springs Retainers or the Leaf Springs have broken. The Retainers should have two (2) bolts holding braces which hold the multiple leafs of the Leaf Springs together. Check these. Also you have bushings bolted then welded to the frame that will need to be checked.
2. Struts with Coils (Springs)?
If so: the Struts could be "shot, and/or broken or completely discharged. The Coils (Springs) could be broken of dislocated.
3. Coils (Springs) without Struts?
If so: the Coils (Springs) could be broken or dislocated.
4. Independent Bar Suspension?
If so: the independent bars could be bent, broken or dislocated from their frame connections with the frame.
5. Solid Axle?
If so: the Axle could be bent, broken or dislocated from their frame connections with the frame.
Since you cannot lift the vehicle, I am assuming you are using the jack under the axle to lift? This would point to the Axle/Bars being broken.

Was an excessive load (weight) put on the back of the SUV lately?

If you can't lift the rear of the vehicle, jack-up and properly support the front then jack-up and support the middle towars the rear of the vehicle to gain access to the rear of the vehicle for a better look.
However while doing this if the rear starts rising: keep a careful eye on the rear tires to see if they are going lower than what they would normally go when you are jacking-up the rear, especially with a broken Axle or Bars. THIS COULD CAUSE THE BROKEN OR DISLOCATED PARTS TO FURTHER BREAK OR CAUSE OTHER CONNECTING PARTS TO FAIL AND BREAK OR COULD CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE REST OF THE SURROUNDING AREAS OF THE CAR. I have seen an Axle and Bars that were broken "pierce" into the body of the vehicle because they were not carefully watching.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information, problems, or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
ps...when describing your problem feel free to fully explain in as much detail as you can, including in this case what type of rear suspension system you have, 2WD, 4WD, AWD, your engine size etc. There is no limit to describing your problem. It enables us to get a very precise answer to your very precise problem quicker.
