Question about changing inner bearings

OK the vehicle is a 95' YJ with stock axles(30/35). The inners on the 35 are gone. What do we need to change them out? If anyone has a write up or can hook fellow jeepers up let us know!!! [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Question about changing inner bearings

I thought the dana 35 was the REAR axle? inner bearings in a rear axle? like inner in the differential?

Re: Question about changing inner bearings

yes the 35 is the rear axle. its the differential bearings. not the hub assembly. it hums really loud...and the diff gets really hot. both wheels can be wobbled when the jeep is jacked up...so again i ask ...how do I fix them!

Re: Question about changing inner bearings

in a d35 they are pressed onto the carrier, so it is a matter of:

jack up rear end
remove tires and brake drums
drain diff fluid and remove cover
rotate carrier till you get the center pin bolt facing you
remove bolt and center pin
push axles inward
remove c clips
pull axle shafts out
remove carrier bearing caps, noting orientation and placement
remove carrier, noting shim placement

may want to check mesh pattern upon reinstallation

if you want, you may as well change outer bearings while you have axles out.

why does this make you think the carrier bearings are worn out? that would tell me that the alxe bearings are shot... Are you sure you don't have more problems than just the carrier bearings?
