TracLock Rebuild

I have ordered a replacement clutch pack for my 1991 dana 35c, any hints on the easiest way to replace these clutches? I have heard it is not an easy chore, any hints would be welcomed.

Re: TracLock Rebuild

We use a special tool set to do the job at my dealership. You're not going to do it without it. It has a stub shaft that is splined to fit into one of the side gears, and the other end is clamped into a vise (use a piece of an old axle). Another tool that spreads apart the 2 side gears to unload the clutch pack so you could remove and install the clutch retainer clips, this is basically a threaded rod with 2 nuts and heavy washers that you use to compress the preload springs. Once the clutch pack clips are removed, turn the housing to allow the side pinion gears to be removed, then release the tension on the side gears. Soak the new clutches in limited slip additive, and reassemble in the order the old ones came out.
It might save you some trouble, if you can find a friendly tech at your local Jeep dealer that can switch them out for you. Most of the labor is in removing the carrier. Hope this helps, good luck!
