Hi chaps, I'm hoping someone here can help me with an issue I'm having on my Puma I fitted an ATB in the rear of my Puma in October 2017, and recently started noticing a groaning noise that's becoming quite bad. My indie and I eventually traced it to the rear diff: at specific rpm/speed, there is a loud, low-frequency groaning noise + vibration emanating from the rear of the car. It almost feels as if the seats have built-in massage function, especially when I hit 80-100kmh. Has anyone else experienced this after fitting an Ashcroft, and if so, how did you fix this? thanks
Hi all, Just bought a set of used Ashcroft ATB's. Low mileage but probably used intensily: seller had a Disco Td5 on extreme off road tyres and upgraded to air lockers. The bearings sound a bit grainy and I found some dirt in the splines. Obviously it has seen a bit more than just oil, contrary to what the seller told me. Also found some cracks in what looks like a shim (photo attached). I presume that a dirty halfshaft has been installed - one can also see some rust coloured dirt in the beginning of the splines, in the out-of-focus area. So I think a good clean is in order. According to a post on the South African forum, the ATB's are quite easy to open and clean: Does anyone have to add something to that? Greetings, Joris
