Talking about your Wife's rear end could get you into lots of trouble!!   :watch_over_fence:

 

How bad is it?   The drive shaft turns and no go?  If so I'd replace the whole axle..  Bearing parts getting around and smashing things is bad.  It just may be as simple as a busted spider gear..  There are quite a bit of things that come into play when you set one of these up..  

 

So post up a few G rated pictures of your wife's rear end and we'll fire back!!   :watching_you:

Ya....We want pict..........oh ,okay that kind of rear end. Had me going there for a second. Not good for my heart at my age.   Seriously,, it shouldn't be that hard if you have the right tools and take the time to take it out of the vehicle and get it up where you can work on it. I've done one back in the 70s and helped with a couple of others. Dust and dirt are the worst of it. Make sure to power wash it after you get it out of the truck and before you open it up.  Good luck and let us see the problem. 

Roger.

Who is the bigger tease; you or your wife?

 

I had a 2001 Dodge 1/2 T. The pinion bearing went out at 67,000 miles. I took it to a so called expert mechanic. He said the shaft had a groove worn where the bearing rides, so he put a sleeve on it. After awhile it was acting up again and took it back. He said the fluid leaked out between the shaft and sleeve. :wallbanging:  Fixed it again and then it started acting up again. Took it back again and said fix it good enough to trade in. I'm not sure how much is Dodge's fault and how much is 'expert mechanic'. D**n, I liked that truck, too!

They make what they call a Repair bearing for those now I understand,it rides in a different area than the OEM bearing and has a built in seal...Thats what I am going back with on this project.

 

I am a lucky man,I got a wife with a great sense of humor(and her rear end aint bad either...LOL)..She has put up with me for 30 years so far..I hope for 30 more.

I was thinking he was a plastic surgeon when I first read title.

 

I just went through this a couple months ago on my son's Bronco, spider gears blew up on his.
