Well here's an update for anyone interested. I now have another rear end installed, and I think I'm finally over the worst on this journey. I guess expecting a used "takeout" unit with no history...

Well, I guess my memory is in worse shape than I thought. I was back out in the yard today looking at that odd rear end and it turns out the axle code isn't unusual at all. I must have been looking...

I'm quite sure what's in the truck now is an 8.8. It's noticeably larger than the 7. whatever that was in there originally and looks to be the same as all the other Explorer units I've seen since all...

unusual Explorer rear end

I'm still ironing out the bugs in my S10 Blazer - Explorer rear end swap. Since the current "salvage yard special" started making noise soon after install, the yard has tried to supply me with a...

Soak the plates overnight? Hadn't heard or thought of that, but I will do it if that helps.
How much gear lube should it take to fill the rear end?

Nothing irritates like trying to assemble something and coming up short on the variety of shim assortment to make up the proper combination. I intend to have the "kit" and whatever that brings, plus...

All good information. I'm not concerned with cornering so much as single wheel slip. I carry a lot of weight, hence the need for the heavier gears to begin with, plus I'm in and out of farms and...

Now that's interesting. So the factory package places two steels between each pair of friction plates? That makes no sense unless it's an attempt to limit traction to begin with. So the factory...

I'm aware of the install kit, bearings, shims, seal etc This not a "total rebuild" of a trashed out assembly. I'm moving the ring, pinion, and carrier from one housing into another, and setting it...

Limited slip unit questions

I plan to assemble an 8.8 rear end unit in the not too distant future. It will be limited slip. Probably the Ford trac-loc. found in most 8.8 units.
I'm wondering what parts in the differential area...

I understand that pinion shaft preload has nothing (or very little) to do with the tooth contact pattern and how that's achieved. My point is that preload can be established by tightening the pinion...

Not sure I buy the "assembly line" aspect at all. If that were the case, then why not the "one and done" process on rebuilds as well? Seems to me achieving proper bearing preload still requires small...

Pinion shaft crush sleeve

I wonder if someone could explain the purpose of the crush sleeve found in so many automotive rear ends? I've been through countless different transmissions and gearboxes over the years, many of...

Well I guess that's one possibility, but if that were the case I wouldn't expect it to go for 800 miles smooth and quiet then suddenly start screaming. I'm no rear end expert by any means, but I...

Well that sure was a disappointment. Here's hoping this doesn't all turn out to be just an expensive lesson. I found a rear end at a local salvage yard. Right gears but not limited slip. Oh well, I...
