The shim between the inner bearing and the pinion is critical and if it's lost you need special tools to set the pinion depth. replace the bearings and seal with an new crush sleeve thighten the pinion nut until the sleeve crushes and you can't move the pinion up and down. Then very slowly tighten the pinion nut checking the rotational torque. You will need an inch pound torque wrench, when the preload is correct it should take between 20-25 inch pounds of torque to rotate the pinion. If you get it too tight you need to replace the crush sleeve and start over. Proper bearing preload and gear mesh are critical.

Why would you be getting a continuous clicking sound from the rear end on your 1998 tacoma prerunner?

I would suspect a defective universal joint on the driveshaft. Can also be a bad wheel bearing or axle bearing. And lastly, a problem with the rear differential. Check the gear lube level in the differential first.

How do you replace the rear wheel bearings on a 1967 Pontiac Firebird 400?

remove rear cover from differential, find 1/4 inch bolt in the third member that holds the 1 inch diameter pin between the axles. Remove the bolt and the pin, push the axle that you want to remove in towards the differential and remove the C-clip that keeps the axle in the differential. Pull the axle, using a bearing puller remove the oil seal and the bearing. Replace the bearing and the oil seal, make sure it is installed in the right direction or it will leak. install the axle, C-clip, pin, bolt, rear cover, and differential oil.


How do you remove the driveshaft on an 88 Chevy Silverado?

Pull the 4 nuts that hold the u-bolts to the differential then slide the differential slightly forward on the spline to remove the U-Joint from the differential. You may need to pry it out. If it's a 2 piece drive shaft with a center "carrier" bearing, remove the 2 bolts of the carrier bearing, then slide the splined shaft out of the transmission. It might be a good idea to have a pan or oil absorbent material available to catch the oil that will drip from the transmission tailshaft.

What would cause a grinding noise from the rear-end of a 1997 Mustang GT It sounds as if it is coming from the differential housing but could it be the axle bearings in the rear-end?

It could be axle bearings, however it is more likely a pinion or carrier bearing since you say the noise seems to be coming from the differential housing. With the vehicle up on a lift around 45 mph, use a mechanic's stethoscope to help pinpoint the noise. You should be able to at least determine if is coming from the axle bearing or the differential, sometimes you can tell if it is a pinion bearing (noise more pronounced near the driveshaft) or if is a carrier bearing (more pronounced near the rear cover).


How do you fix a ford F-150 4x4 rear wheel bearing?

access the rear differential, and remove cover.remove 5/16 bolt and remove pin holding axle in. with wheel and drum off, push axle in to reveal c-clip inside differential. once c-clip is removed, pull axle out of axle housing. remove axle seal with seal puller to access bearing. bearing must be removed using apropriate tools(bearing puller, slide hammer, etc..). install new bearing with bearing driver. install new seal with seal driver. reinstall remaining parts in reverse order.
