SOURCE: Blowing tires on my tag axle

Air leaks around rim or tire valves, bad axle alignment, improperly loaded trailer with too much weight or not properly ballanced front to rear, wrong load range or type of tires (never use passenger car tires on trailers), receiver hitch height is incorrect when loaded (if it's too low it can cause a teeter totter effect on the front axle, if it's too high you shift too much weight over the rear or tag axle and over heat the tires) or the tires could be rubbing on something.

SOURCE: how to remove rear axle on 1998 ford expedition, detailed please!

well if its a straight axle as in just a regular rear end thats something you will want to take some where unless you know exactly what your doing because it involves taking the rearend plate off an d all of that now if it has cv axles in the back that is a different story and the axles are usually either bolted on with about 6 bolts or there is just a ring clip that you got a get a pry bar inbetween the rear end and axle and just give it a good **** and it will pop out

I have a 98 Ford E150 conv. van need to replace complete rear end need to figure out which one I have and what yr will interchange and if a truck rear end work or only a van

Hello will find some identifying information on the actual real axle casing. Stamped numbers, I.D. tag or you can search your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) or make, model year and series on the internet to see what options were available for rear end gearing ratio's.

Yes you should stick with a similar or identical rear end to ensure proper mounting bracket alignment and gear ratio choices. Dana Model 60, 70 & 80 Axles are not internally identical.

Looks like the standard differential carrier for the E150 is a 8.8" (*10 bolt). Standard, Includes Spider gears, 31 spline, 7/8" shaft.

* Ten Bolt - The rear end cover plate contains 10 mounting plate bolt holes.

I am trying to find out what size and year my engine is

Ok, no problem. Copy down your VIN number and go to a decoding site.
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the string of 17 numbers and letters that an automobile manufacturer assigns to an individual vehicle. The VIN can reveal a number of things about a car, including its airbag type, country of origin, engine size, model year and trim level. The VIN also is key to car safety. By entering a VIN in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's free VIN Look-up Tool, you can see whether a vehicle is subject to a recall. Typically, the VIN is stamped into a plate that's mounted on the dashboard near the windshield or on the driver-side door jamb. It's also stamped on the engine's firewall.

What is the size of a king ranch f150 2002 ford rear axle housing and it is a double cabin

There are 3 different sizes of axles available.(8.8")(9.75")(10.25") Most 2wd are 8.8" but you can get them in a 9.75". Most 4wd are 9.75" although it is possible to get it in a 8.8". And usually the 10.25" is reserved for 7700 series trucks. This is only a rough guideline as vehicles could be ordered with different options or the axle may have been swapped out. If it has 7 bolt rims then it is definitely a 10.25" and if it has 5 bolt rims its either an 8.8" or a 9.75". The easiest way to tell would be to check the axle tag. It should be bolted right on the rear axle housing. This will give you all of the information of the axle(size/ratio). If not you can give your local Ford dealer a call with the VIN# and if their friendly they will tell you.

I have a 1988 Bronco with a drivers side rear axle and bearing problems. How can I find the right sized axle and bearings?

There's a tag on the rear cover. The most popular one on a full sized bronco is an 8.8 ring gear with a 3:55 ratio. However, The 5 lug axles are the same for the F150 and Bronco (not Bronco II) from about 88-96. The gear ratio doesn't matter. The axle bearing is probably in abundant supply in just about any parts store. The axles are plentiful at just about any salvage yard. There really aren't any options to concern yourself with. It's kinda like going to Baskin Robbins 32 flavors of Ice Cream...and they're all vanilla. You can check to locate one near you and research the item on your own. I hope I've helped. Please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial.

Proper installation of rear axle bearings and seals

It really would help to know the model, make, and year, because a front wheel drive care tends to have a simple pair of tapered bearing that are installed in the brake drum or rotor, while a rear wheel drive vehicles can have very different bearings that need press work, depending on if the suspension is independent or solid axle.

Blowing tires on my tag axle

Have you checked to see if a wheel bearing is seizing on you? May cause the wheel to drag. Or may just be bad luck on our part.

Bird Rear-end Size

Hi meduck4,heres what you need brother as I cant see your diff, 3 ways to tell what you have:
#1 The first is the driver's door tag; there will be a one-letter or one-numeral axle code listed there. You can then compare it to the chart below: CODE Rear Axle Ratio Conventional Locking 8 M 2.73 Y Z 3.08 F R 3.45 5 E 3.27 6 W 3.73
#2 The second is the axle tag, attached to the lower lefthand bolt on the rear axle itself. The bottom left line will give you the gear ratio, and the type of rear end (S for limited slip non-locking, and L for locking).

#3 The 7.5" rear axle height is shorter than the width and the shape appears "oval".
The 8.8" rear axle
dimensions are equal and the shape appears "round".

This will tell you what you have my friend,good luck

I presume you're asking if they will interchange?The 616 ASw tag number looks valid,that would be decoded,1996 year model.the 3rd 6 in "616" is the year model,and the ASw looks valid as the actual axle ratio code,which i will have to look up at work,but the second tag,recheck those numbers,i can't make any sense of them.
