Re: Its now a 2 wheel drive 4x4
The noise is coming from the pinion bearing, the yoke has a lot of play.
Oops, the hub bearing needs the axle shafts stub at least to keep the bearing in one piece, if there is nothing there the bearing will come apart according to my buddy at the dealer and he was right, lucky I had a spare bearing here. I took off the big ujoints and reinstalled the stub end. I ended up ordering the new axle shafts $400 for both sides complete with ujoints for my dana 60. The old ones had some nasty wear grooves in them at the seal surfaces...
