    I had a poping crunch noise coming from my rear diff. I had it inspected at a 4wheel parts store and saw that a couple of the spider gears wear broken off. The shop sold me a rebild Spider gears kit ($112.) I had them put the new kit in. When I drove my truck home it still makes the same poping crunch noise. Did they miss something or did they not put it in? Also would you have to remove the brakes and alxel to put new spider gears in? Im starting to wounder if they did it at all. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif O ya its a 10 bolt diff

    yes they would so they could slide the axle shafts out to get the spider gears out

    you might want to look for yourself.like mudhog said they would have had to pull the shafts to get to the spiders in the diff.the c clip holds the axles in against the im not sure the technical term but the crosshaft that the side spiders rides on.it also has to be pulled almost out to get the gears out.

    There's a good chance they left some chunks in there as well. Look for metal in the fluid. If you can pull the diff. carrier out feel around just inside the tubes behind the shims. That seems to be a big place for metal to hide. If they did actually swap the gears, they may have just done a crappy job of cleaning the mess out afterwards.
