There is a metalic in my oil when I inspected closer, I suspect maybe whats
gone bad is the pinion bearings or the teeth on the pinion gear unseeable
end where the pinion seal is. I am trying to get an idea of what cost I am
going to be looking at, the mechanic at the trans shop said yesterday there
shouldnt be any play in the big pin that goes through the spider gear
housing eeek? , Again the seeable gears are not chewed up and seem to work
smoothly, any imput is much appreciated. I thought originally I only needed
a rear pinion seal, now I dont have an idea what I should do the projected
cost according to the trans shop is unknown they act like it's going to be
2-3 grand maybe more, I need to know better option's and if I do decide to
buy an entire rear axle is there places that sell at a better price? This
is a 1997 Jeep Wrangler sport 4.0 , isn't this a Dana 44 rear end? Anyway
im no axle expert but am just trying to learn and get an idea before I get
this thing worked on so I don't get ripped off.
The mechanic said it was rubbing inside I didn't hear that even with the
cover off,(Did have rubbing at the brake drums) and even when i started the
jeep and put it in 1st letting the tires spin while it's on the jack
stands. this was rebuilt not to long ago but I wasn't the one driving the
jeep at that time, the guy did say somthing about they said if they were
going to keep the jeep along time some side bearing would need to be
replaced, I have no idea what he was refering too.
But anyway the reason im posting this is because as I said I want to get an
opinion on what will have to be done and what cost I may be looking at and
if what seems not normal maybe is normal?
What is the cost for pulling off a rear end and installing a new one?

Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement
Sorry I missed you last week, I had this video half done and didn't get a
chance to finish. Well we have our 1990 Accord again, I'm getting some
mileage out of this one but I don't mind cause there are still quite a few
of these on the road and a few of you have claimed ownership to one of
these 4th generation Accords, so enjoy. A couple of things to note, I
could do a video on taking out the wishbone bolt alone, I've run into a few
problems here such as a rusted bolt that won't come out of it's bushing as
one example, perhaps future videos will show how to overcome this problem.
I thought this one went together well despite the fact that you might be
getting sick of Honda Accords, I still have more from other makes that I
haven't edited or posted yet. I have more to this video as well that may
show up in DVD form at one point, YouTube only gives me 10min to work with
but I think that is enough to get you started and not lose interest.
Perhaps you could help by submitting questions in the form of text
responses or what I would really like is a video response to something I've
put out there, that would be great.
