    Icon14 Look what I found yesterday!

    I have been dreading opening this rear axle up, but I finally decided to tackle it and I am glad I did! This is the outer pinion bearing race. Definitely has some problems!









    I still have to measure backlashing and some other stuff, but I don't have much left to do. If I was to let a mechanic do this work it would have cost over $700.00 just for the labor! I am doing it all for less than $300.00. This is why car audio and vehicle maintenance comes so naturally to me, it's all about learning!

    Looks like pitting from rust/corrosion. What kind of rear end is it? Ive tackled a few of them. I have about 100$ in specific tools needed to do it, but better than the 600$ for install at a shop. What are you using for marking compound? Lipstick works good, its hard to find actual marking compound it seems unless you buy online.

    Re: Look what I found yesterday!

    It's a Chrysler Corporate 9.25". That's why it costs so much. I have the carrier bearing spanner tool already and the back lash caliper. I was able to find a total rebuild kit online for $129.00 on Jegs.com. It's has to be the most finicky rear end I have ever rebuilt. You got any good tips for removing the bearings from the third member and pinion? I am trying to save the 30 bucks to have a shop press them off and new ones on. And you got any other tips UniBrad?

    Re: Look what I found yesterday!

    I cleaned everything and I don't believe I have any internal problems









    I took these pics just in case someone else saw something fishy, but after a couple of times thoroughly looking it over, I believe I just caught it early and bearings were the only thing needing to be replaced!

    Nope, just regular factory heights and tire sizes. I am probably not gonna upgrade those either. If it was 4 wheel drive, i would have upgraded in a heartbeat!

    No Thank you, No Thank You, I definitely don't want anything that's more finicky! I honestly don't want to imagine something harder to rebuild! lol

    Your drive shaft angle maybe off that looks to be an odd wear pattern
