found another problem...

yet anouther problem rears its ugly head.

I took apart the rear diff again because the axle shaft and other related parts should be here tomorrow. I cleand the oil off of everything and found a crack in my carrier.
between loosing my job, the spiders going,and the axle breaking(taking the passenger side rear brakes with it) I am flat f***in broke. I don't know how to set backlash, etc.

If anyone can explain how to properly replace the carrier and set the backlash, etc. Please post. I have the dana(junk)35c rear. I also need prices on the carrier 4.11 gears and abs.

Thanks in advance,
Eric

Man, you have all the luck

Well, really I'd suggest not doing it yourself if you've never done it before. You've gotta get it just right or your gonna have a lot more problems.

For gears you'll send around 130-150 bucks, the install kits run about 50 bucks for the Master kits.

I don't have the money to take it in. The carrier cracked on both sides, right at the holes for the cross shaft. Does anyone know of a good source for a carrier? What other parts will I need?

Dude, when I saw "found another problem" and your name next to it I just cringed. Follow that info I gave you before when you were trying to locate the shaft. I'm sure you will get help there.

Setting gears is out of my league.

Man Tonka you are sure gettin a run of bad luck..Sorry to hear it. For rear end anything I would check www.randysringandpinion.com I got my carrier and gears though them and they were all the help. As for backlash it is critical to be precise, you have to have a dial indicator to set it up the right way. If you've never done it find a buddy that has, help watch and learn.. Best of luck to you, I feel for ya!!!

For some unknown reason, The Jeep Gods don't like me. I'm at the point where I'm pretty much stuck. I'm afraid that if I fix the rear that I have,something else is going to break. On the other hand, If I buy a used rear, I'll probably have to re gear it before I can use it.Either way I go, I'll have to borrow money.

I was supposed to start a new job next week. Of course there is no one near me to get a ride with.

To top it off, I've already spent $550(borrowed money)on this rear.



I hate to say this, but I wonder what I will break next?

You sould be able to replace the carrier yourself! It's easy. Nothing to set. Get a new carrier and then have some new bearings pressed onto it. $10 each for the bearings. Order some new ring bolts while your at it. The shims for the carrier are on the outside. So as long as the carrier and the bearings are the same as those taken off the old carrier then it should go back in as it was before.

Oh yeah, I did my mown gears in a car port with jackstands.

How do you pull the carrier?
I have the bearing caps off, But I cant get it to loosen up. I dont want to risk the hammer/pry bar approach unless thats ok.
Thanks in advance.

jeffy, thanks alot the advice will save me some $$$

osburn, how much do the dana 60's you have run?

Be sure to pull the axle shafts out.

use a pry bar and pry from the bottom. It should come out fairly easily. Work it side to side if need be. Try and pry ( rhyme time) from the center of the carrier mostly. If it get's to cock eye'd, it'll be harder to get out.

You really don't want to know. Are you sitting down? I paid about $10K for two axles. I know, it's obscene.

Tonka,
10k for the two axles is about the going rate. Sunray's 9"/D60 hybrids are about the same price. Having D44's build probably will burn a good size hole in you wallet as well. I would highly suggest building them your self or just investing in spare D35 parts. Remember, you don't have to build a jeep over night. There is no race to the finish. And, it's IMO and probably the opinion of other's that, if you can learn to drive your rig in various stages, by the time you get your rig done (as if that's possible), you will have aquired priceless driving skills. Just ask a few how long it's taken them to get to where there at. I'm goin on 5 years myself.
