rear end problems

noticed some vibration in my drive shaft and hear unhealthy noise coming from the rear end . realized there was play in the yoke so i removed the cap and drained out all the fluid only to find pieces of bearings belonging to the pinion inner kit . how would i go about replacing this bearing kit. do i have to remove all my gears from the rear end to gain access to this bearing and what other troubles may i run into in this job . any advice would be appreciated . thanks

Repair it by swapping in a Ford 8.8 from a '95-'01 Explorer.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

Quoted for truth. Inspect the ring and pinion. Chances are it damaged the teeth, rendering them useless. And repair will require a new gear set and proper set up. For that price you could have an 8.8. East Coast Gear Supply sells bolt in 8.8s for a fair price.

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.
