Thanks! He suspects that there is supposed to be a spacer that goes between the carrier bearings and the case (someone has been in the diff before).Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but I pulled it out of my 2001 SM. Hope this helps.
there is a web page you can get the FACTORY SERVICE MANUAL from just google SERVICE manual for 1993-2004 jeep grand cherokee. i found it and downloaded it to my desktop. also you can google parts diagram for a dana super 30..its not hard to find them.I cant belive how hard it is to find an expanded parts diagram for this axle!
yeah i see what you mean im 67 yrs old so no your not to old. computers and search engines are a pain in the ***. search using dana 30 axles or dana 30 rear ends or jeep grand cherokee dana 30 diagrams. i remember when the word was computers were goiing save everyone a lot of time...well bull**** they drive me crazy at times..I guess that's somewhat encouraging. Of course I've tried using search engines. Maybe I'm too old now to use computers? It has to happen some day.
Please post a link if you don't mind.The hydra-lok / vari-lok version is different from other super 30's.
This one is the best that I've found, it's not too bad.
