axle slipping out of nine inch question

A friend has a scrambler with a 9 inch in the back and says that the axle keeps walking out. Took out the caliper when this happened. I'm going over on Monday with my tools to see if I can help out. Anything I should expect, like maybe a c-clip busted? Don't have any more details than that for now. Any common problems with 9 inch axles walking out? Thanks

Re: axle slipping out of nine inch question

Assuming you are talking about a Ford 9", I don't think it would be a c-clip since it would be impossible to get c-clips into a axle with out a diff cover to access them! Defiantly a axle shaft bearing problem. Good luck:

Re: axle slipping out of nine inch question

yeap, axle bearing. take the shaft out and go have a new bearing pressed on. if the problem persists, the shaft it's self is the problem.

Re: axle slipping out of nine inch question

You're talking about the bearing on the shaft itself right. I've only worked on my amc 20. dana 30, and my chevelle's 12 bolt before. I've never looked at a ford 9 inch but I'm assuming you're talking about the bearing by the brake end of the shaft, not the spline end? Thanks you two for your replies.

Re: axle slipping out of nine inch question

Yes it is the brake end! you only have to take the brakes and the brake backing plate bolts off and the axle should slide out!

Re: axle slipping out of nine inch question

Not sure how similar a rear 44 is to a 9". But my axle shafts NEVER slide out. I have to yank and pull and yank and pull. So if you have the brakes and backing plate off, and everything else is clear, don't be flustered if it won't come out real easy. But it will.

Re: axle slipping out of nine inch question

yep the bearing that is pressded onto the axle shaft and it is at the outer ends. that press fit is all that holds the shaft in. the plate with four bolts on the outer ends of the tubes holds the beaings in and the bearings press fit holds the shaft it's self in. replace the bearing and it will more than likely fix your problem. if not the shaft could be damaged and the bearing will no longer stay on the shaft tight enough for the shaft to stay in.
