Dana 35 Problem
I had a whine in the rear end that increased with acceleration. I pulled the cover off, and took it apart. I found the carrier bearing and the spider gears were bad. Also, there was play in the pin that holds the spider gears in, in the housing. Some lunch box lockers say that will not work with a limited slip differential. How do i know whether I have one or not? The rear end is a Dana 35M with 4/11 gears.

My question is- would i be better off putting a locker in/would that eliminate the need to replace the spider gears?

Left carrier is open, right is limited slip.

great thank you I have open so another question:Does that play in the pin that holds the small spiders in place have any impact on a locker,does the new locker use those holes at all?

The time now is 10:32 PM.
