    I think I messed up my rear axle the other day. It started making a banging noise on my way to work. I lifted it up and thought maybe just a U-Joint. I grabbed a hold of the driveshaft and it wiggled around the output shaft on the rear-end. I dont know what this is but the boys at work say pinon bearing ????? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif But I am trying to sell it so I called all the junkyards trying to find an axle and fix it that way. No such luck. No rear 10 bolts and so I have a useless truck. What do yall think this is and how should I go about fixing it? Or should I just try and sell it as is? Please /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif (Sorry about the lenght)

    Well if it is your pinion bearing you will be able to move the yoke (where the u-joint attaches). It is a pretty in-depth task to replace. Ask the guys at work if they know how. If it is just a stock 10 bolt some body on here should be able to hook ya up. If you were closer you could have mine.

    Check out local junk yards or any Members in your area might have one laying around. If you don't want the hassle of replacing the pinion bearing It is pretty easy to swap in a whole new axle browse throughthe for-sale forum for anybody in your area.

    You 'called' the junkyard? ALWAYS just go, it is really hard to believe there are NO 10 bolts in that whole yard....
