Does anyone know if it is possible to get a shudder from the rear differential? I have an 88YJ. The rear diff has recently been rebuilt. Is this a normal thing? I am quite certain it is not the clutch. It only happens if I give it a little too much gas starting in first gear in 2 wheel drive. Haven't noticed it in 4 wheel. Thanks. Len

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] I still think it is the clutch. In 2WD you have more torque reaction and more spring wind-up in the rear, which acts with the clutch to produce chatter. In 4WD torque is spread over two axles, so the spring wind-up is less and it is not as sympathetic with the clutch stick-slip-stick-slip syndrome. Anyway that is what my moon guy [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] specialist in clutch disorders tells me.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Shudderrr

You can't really get a shudder out of a diff (unless it's around a corner). If there is any type of gear problem, it should make noise all the time.

It could possibly be your slip shaft splines binding, or like CJDave says, you're clutch (glazed flywheel/disc).

Re: Shudderrr

I have the same problem with the rear end shuddering like a bad clutch at take off some times on my 92 Cherokee, and its and auto. I had it looked at and the consensus was my limited slip going bad. By chance do you have a limited slip rear end?
