disc back axle


Recommended Posts

stubs are different part numbers

FRC8005 used up to chassis number JA 032850 [Discovery]

then FTC3188 from chassis number JA 032851 [Discovery]

could be the 200Tdi to 300Tdi changeover point.

the actual hub & bearings are common parts though

axle case is FTC3437 no anti lock brakes, if it had antilock brakes the there's 2 other part numbers dependent on the rear axle serial number.

If you are going to get the axle case shot-blasted, then make a blanking plate for the axle ends, cap off the breather thread, and make sure the diff pan is bolted on securely. The axle should be pretty air tight then. It would be wise to rinse it through before re-assembling it though.

LR drive me mad with their part numbers, some parts have about 3 numbers depending on what book you are looking at. And you never really know if there was a change in specification to go with the number change. (There normally isn't).

Jack the vehicle up under the back axle, remove the rear wheels, place an axle stand or similar under the chassis rails either side - close to the radius arm brackets on the chassis. Disconnect the shocks, brake lines (T-piece on the top of the diff), lower the axle until the springs come loose, undo the lower spring retainers and remove the springs. Disconnect the radius arms, A-frame ball joint, prop, anti-roll bar if you have one fitted). Bear in mind that the axle will become unstable as you disconnect the A-frame and Radius arms, so watch for it falling off the jack. You can leave the prop connected to control this to a certain degree, but it's still a bit dodgy. Try get an assistant to control the axle by holding on to the passenger side hub (not the disc/drum, as it will still roll).

hi,

i started taking everything apart eady for the back axle last night and noticed the A frame ball joint seems different to the one that was on the axle, as the nut was 24mm spanner whereas the one on the disco was 30mm any ideas as to wether it will work?

thanks
