my truck been eating up those plastic bushings in the front end on the outer axle shaft and i causes a vibration and its really start to make me mad cause this will be the 2nd time in a month has anyone ever had this problem b4 and no what causes it theres new u joints wheel bearings new ring and pinion with new bearings and seals plus i even got new axles on the passenger side cause the first time this happen i though i had a bent one and the passenger side axle tube is leaking again if anyone has any info on this or has had this happen to them please help me out
no i didn't replace that one but there is no play in the inner axle shaft what so ever and yea i put grease on both of the shafts and another question if i spin the driver side wheel is it normal to hear the spider gears spinning?
if i spin the driver side wheel is it normal to hear the spider gears spinning?
yes. the drivers side axle turns the side gear. in response, something else must turn - either the ring/pinion/drive shaft, or the spiders/passenger side inner axle. spiders offer less resistance, so they turn.
hey man im having the same problems did you ever fig anything out.. the only bushings/bearings that i could find is the little one that goes between the 2 pass axles and the one that knocks in on the left side of the cad?
yeah i replaced both axles on the pass. side and bought a new axle bushing and u joint and it took care of my vibration and hub because i bought a cheap one off ebay and it held the axle in to far and was wearing the bushing out within a couple hunderd miles so i bought a timkin hub because the cheap hub it messed up the axles where they went together
