You should have a d30 up front. Replacing pinion bearings is pretty involved and things have to be set to correct tolerances. I would imagine the repair would cost from 300 to 400 dollars.

I don't know, what do you say when a bearing is shot? My pinion bearing was whining for months up front. Now it makes some ugly grinding and clicking sounds. Painful to drive! its been parked for a week now I refuse to use it. Money is tight and cannot afford much. I've been trying to research repair steps specific for this rebuild but need to I.D. the axle first. Anybody have a link which explains the steps? Also, where can I pick up the parts at reasonable cost? Much thanks,
