Pinion is necessary to get to and replace the pinion crush sleeve that controls the pinion pre-load. It is also stated that a complete teardown of the differential is necessary as well.

Preload is the amount the pinion bearings are squeezed together by the pinion nut.

There is no specific pinion nut torque. The pinion nut has to be tightened until the proper pinion preload is established. Pinion preload is what matters

There is no specific pinion nut torque that needs to be reached.. You just need to tighten the nut until the correct pinion preload is reached.

How do you change the seal on the rear-end that the drive shaft goes into on a 92 Tacoma 4x4?

Remove the drive shaft. Mark the relationship of the pinion nut to the pinion gear. This is necessary to maintain pinion bearing preload. Remove the nut. Remove the flange. Pry out and replace the seal. Reinstall in reverse order being sure realign the marks that were previously made. Check gear oil level and add as necessary.

What is the preload on the pinion bearing and the backlash on the crownwheel and pinion inside the rear differential of a 1997 ford explorer 4 wheel drive?

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.

I don't believe there is a specific torque specification! Once you install the crush sleeve and tighten the nut to the desired preload on your pinion bearings, your torque will be what it will be.

If you are asking the question, you need to pay someone to do that. You have to preload the pinion, shim, etc. It isn't a bolt the ring gear in place and torque the pinion and go thing or else you will be making metal shavings and molten metal.

What causes decreased preload?

Preload is caused by decreased blood volume in ventricles. Therefore, decreased preload directly caused by bleeding, polyuria, dehydration.
