  1. Unfortunately, with work and all going on we have only been able to pinpoint the problem and get the parts. The differential gears have a missing tooth and others are worn. We actually found a whole other rear end and plan to replace it this weekend. At this point I only plan to pull differential cover, inspect, clean, and change gear oil. Of course replace brakes or any other components as needed. Aside from alignment of axles for straight traveling and re-tightening our work, are there any special items we should look at? Thanks in advance...
  2. My son's 1991 YJ Wrangler developed a clunking noise under load in all gears. We did a little more looking and found the differential gears worn badly. It's been a long time since I worked on a rear end, think I remember the steps. This is a 1991 Wrangler YJ 4-cylinder. I believe it has a Dana 44 rear in it. The person that had it before my son kinda mixed a lot of different parts in the Jeep. The rear seems to be original but not sure. Can't find any markings. Thanks for any comments before I begin...
