Looking for some help or advice?

Hey guys well to make it short john,jake, and myself were installing a locker the other night and when pulling the carrier we figured out that the bearing were bad on the sides of the carrier. So i got the new bearings and everything but now we dont have a special tool to get them off. Does anyone know how to set the backlash and have a speical tool to pull the bearings . If i took this to a shop what price should i be looking at the just set the backlash and put the new bearings on? Thanks so much.

Once you change the bearings, you need re set the gears. You will need a press to set the bearings, and a press plate to remove the bearings. You cant just take the carrier to the shop and have them set the back lash. You will need to get everything to a shop to have them reset the gears.

It is time consuming, meticulous, and precise. I can do an set in a couple hours, tops, but I have done many of these. Look for a write up on how to set up gears.

This is a write up from Yukon, however it the same no matter what gears you are using.

If you take it to a shop to reassemble, you will be looking at 200-400 in labor.

All you need to pull the bearings off is a standard gear puller.. I had to modify my gear puller to fit the arb locker(I had to grind it thinner to fit under the gear.)

You should not need to reset the backlash/preload(with luck) as long as you use excactly the same shims as what came off in the 1st place.

There are manufacturing tolerances in the bearings. That could be enough to throw out the tooth contact pattern. Anytime something is changed in a differential, you should run paint, and reset as needed. With the exception of side gears and or spider gears.

You may get lucky and have a good pattern after you re install, but if its not, you may end up with gear whine, too much or too little back lash. All of which will negatively effect the longevity and durability of your differential,
