It was diff fluid that had leaked out of the top of the hose! it only did it that one time, and has since not leaked, so I ignored it. now I just want to get it fixed..

You ate up the spiders in a 44? What tires and gears are running? I did the same but I was running a hopped up 350 and 36" Baja belted mickeys in a Cj5

Hmmm? Usually the shafts will give before the spiders. I have the same problem with my 30 puking 90wt all the time but it has just been since I installed a set of solid diff covers. But those should be going by the way side for a set of 60s

I had the gears installed a year or two ago, and it started snapping/popping about 8 months ago. I thought for sure it was the bearings or the shafts as well, but I pulled one, and it is just fine

Spiders are an easy fix but trying to figure out what caused them to do that is another story make sure your housing and shafts aren't bent. And check your bearings for any slop or binding. And if you need any help just let me know I'm a firetruck mechanic for the Air Force

Did the popping start before or after the you found the breather off?

The pops started much before I found it off. It has been making the noise for a good 8 months, and it never really got better or worse and there was nothing that I could see was wrong with it.

Is the gear marking compound still on the ring gear by chance? Only other thing would be if the thrust washers between the carrier and the spiders wore down. And you have taken on some water at some point and time hence the milky fluid.

Hey Gunner, So on another thread they said that a locker replaces those spider gears. Is that right? If so I could just get an OX Locer and kill two birds with one stone, yea?

You can get a "lunchbox" locker like a lock rite, Spartan Detroit ezlocker etc. That replaces your spider gears. The ox, ARB, and detroit lockers are cSe replacements that need a full setup with shims and bearings etc. Lunch boxes are fairly cheap, noisy and tend to wear out on DD Jeeps.

yes, a lunchbox would be cheaper. But I have been planning on getting an OX Locker for a few months now, and now seems like the perfect time to do it. (repair and upgrade) The OX kit would come with all the neccesary shims/bearings/seals needed though, right? I have no proplem throwing some extra cash at it.. I would much rather a selectable locker than an automatic
