Rear end repair

So a few years ago i replaced the rear end on my 95 Bronco. A year later i noticed the same noise it made before and came to find out there was no oil in it, yet no leak cause i've filled it again and its still full 2 years later. It's still making a bad noise once i get over 60-65mph and the speedometer starts bouncing (as it did with my old one). Everyone has told me that its my bearings going out. For the most part as long as i stay under 60 it drives great...well, good enough.

My quesiton is: If it is my bearings going out, how big of a task is it to pull the rear differential appart and replace those? My old mechanic told me it would be $2400 for him to do it. Sorry i know this is a very vague quesiton.

Re: Rear end repair

I'm having similar experience with my 95 F-150. We had a temp replacement done in June o4, and its still holding. It was only good for about 6 months and its been a year& 1/2. Hey what do I know, I'm just a girl.

I agree. If you can turn a wrench ,use a puller and keep track of exactly how you took (shims) it apart you can do it for about $60 bucks including putting in good synthetic oil. I use red line synthetic from summit.- I did mine in about 2 hours the first time.-Bob
