The rear end (Dana 44 with Detroit locker) of my 98 TJ needs a lot of work. I haven't torn it down yet, but I'm assuming I'll need:
-New ring/pinion gears (known to be heavily worn)
-Replacement axle seal (leaking out the left side)
There's some carnage on the inside of the axle housing as well (from spun bearings), so I may also need a new axle housing (yuck), but maybe just new axle bearings.
This is all pretty out of my league. Is there anyone who has experience with D44 work and wants to make some extra cash? (Or, can anyone recommend a place with a great reputation and fair prices?)
Thanks so much!
