Opinon before I dive in!


Recommended Posts

Hi there.... again!

I have noticed a knocking when changing gear, so i duly dived underneath to look at the transmission. I noticed that whilst the rear prop cannot be turned (with all wheels on the ground) the front can be twisted an amount.

My suspicions are the the diff is on the way out, or is it? Before idive in with another diff is it more likely to be half shalfs?

What action is best?

Cheers

Neil

gents,

Some more info!!

I had all four wheels on the deck with the hand brake on, and i must of had just over a quarter of a turn on the front prop. The ujs look good and the extra play is certainly coming from inside the diff.

What is likely to wear first, the diff or the half shafts?

Cheers

Neil

What he said ^^^^^ ,The rear A frame Ball joint can be a decieving little bugger when it comes to transmission clunks , They just sit there looking all normal whilst the owner is franticly stripping axles , diffs and transfer boxes , and they are more often than not the little culprit of your woes :ph34r:

the a-frame ball joint give a "thock" sound when moving off (lower sounding note). if it's a "cruck" it's more likely the play in the differential.

Some play in the prop is perfectly fine. to get a feel of what the "cruck" sounds like, grabe the prop and turn it hard. you'll hear the gears hit each other. that's the sound.
