Ford Crown Victoria

If when rounding a curve and accelerating the rear wheels on a 1995 Crown Victoria seem to turn out and push the rear-end around the curve is this your imagination?

A CV suspension is set up to "understeer" if you are coasting or off of the throttle, this means that the car tends to go where the wheels are pointed. This is a pretty safe, predictable way to pilot a car. If you apply enough power to the rear tires to cause them to skid slightly, allowing the rear of the car to swing out, applying a little more power will "push" the car into the corner that the car is following. It's a fine balance with the average passenger car. A Crown Victoria with a Police Suspension Package will handle this kind of abuse better than the standard model with soft steering, soft suspension.

This characteristic is actually a feature of high-performance rear-wheel-drive cars that can allow them to corner better than a similar size/weight front-wheel-drive car. Of course, all-wheel-drive cars behave better than either.

The best way to get a handle on skidding and sliding steering is to take a closed-track high-performance driving course. They'll have Caprice/CV and Z-28 Camaro/Mustang GT's to drive with an instructor. This is NOT your high school drivers' ed course!

If you are talking about the rear axle bearing you have to open cover on rearend ( differential) You`ll see a small bolt on pinion gear shaft. Remove it. You mave have to put vehicle in nuetral to turn rearend gears to slide pinion gear shaft out of the way.There are 2 c-clip like things that slide out. This will allow axle`s to slide out of rearend. Now you have to go to auto-zone or wherever and rent a bearing puller to remove bearing from rearend.

In 69 you could get whatever you wanted, a lot of impalas had the 12 bolt rearend and some had the 8.5 10 bolt rearend.

what kind of rearend does a stock 96 ford bronco eddie bauer have.

take all the bolts out of the rearend pumpkin cover and you will see the rearend gears, push the axle inwards and you will see a C clip that holds it in place inside the rearend, pull the C clip out and then you can pull the axle out.

The brake is on the rearend. Depending on what year the mower is will tell you which side of the rearend it is on. More recent mower will have it on the right side of the mower. You should be able to look under the mower just in front of the right rear wheel and see the rod going from the linkage to the rearend. It goes through a lever on the rearend. There is a nut where that pivots. If you tighten that nut it will adjust the brake.

the backing plate on the rearend has to come off and there are C -clips that you have to pull out of each axle where they mesh with the gears inside the rearend and then you can pull the axles out.

take back plate off of the rearend pumpkin and there is a horseshoe clip at the end of the axle inside the rearend that has to come out and then the axle will pull out.

1) The drive belt could be broken. 2) The rearend could be bad 3) The brake on the rearend could be stuck. (this would make the rear tires lock up) 4) The pulley on the engine or rearend could be the problem. You need to do a little investigating to see what is going on where.

indeed, the water gets trapped in the bumber.

An 8.8 inch ( if that's what you are asking ? )

all depended on how it was geared in the rearend.

it will deploy if hit hard enough.

That all depended on the engine and rearend you had in the car.

The speedometer sensor is in the top of your rearend housing.

rear what? the backend of the car or the drivetrain rearend?

If it was ordered with one, yes otherwise, no.

No, It does not matter on the rear ends.

The 4 connection points on the rearend and suspension ,and chassis

As I don't own one there is no need to strengthen it.

depends on the engine in the car and the gearing in the rearend.

If you rearend someone, regardless of road conditions or the other drivers disposition on a drivers lic or insurance, you are still responsible. Not having a license or insurance is a civil matter, not involving insurance company.
