when I bought my jeep the guy I got it from said there was somthing wrong with the rear end but didnt know what.
well today I took off the differential cover and everything looks fine but when I turn it it sounds like there are a bunch of little pieces of metal are rilling around inside the locker. anyone know if I will have to replace the whole setup or just something inside thats not as expensive
tought call... the ARB interal parts are made of 300M...I have never seen one actually break..
Check the pinion gear carefully, and all of the bearings.
If you still see nothing wrong, remove the carrier and disassemble the locker (they are pretty simple). U lots of red loctite when you re-assemble it.
We pulled the dented cover off a buddies 60 and there was small metal pieces in there from the ARB also, turns out they were retaining tabs pressed onto the bolts holding the ARB together and they were knocked off from the cover. The guy that built the axle said it "should" be okay w/o the tabs because they use locktight on the bolts as well.
well when I took the cover off there wasnt anything in there. unless the guy I got it from cleaned it out first. but inside the carrier I can hear little chiunks of something rolling around in there. everything was clean and the gears looked good all the way around.
how hard is it to get the ring and pinion lined up correctly the way it is now? I have never taken a diff apart before and I dont wanna have to get it towed to a shop later on because I messed it up worse.

Do ARBs clunk and bang like full-time lockers?
