Hello all, new to the ranger forums. I've had my '02 ranger (4.0L, 4x2, auto) for a few years now and with 125k on the clock she's starting to give me a little trouble.
I just got done rebuilding the rear brakes and noticed it seems like the axle seals and pinion seal are leaking. I just replaced the pinion seal about a month ago but it seems to be leaking again. I tried to get away with not taking the whole thing apart and replacing the crush collar, so i guess now i'll have to do it the right way. BTW, it's an 8.8 open diff with 3.55 gears.
I was thinking since i'm going to be in there anyways i'd go through the whole thing and replace all the bearings. rebuild kits seem kinda pricey, any suggestions? I was wondering if one of the ford racing mustang kits would work, such as this:
thanks in advance!
obviously i'd have to add axle bearings and seals. or would those for a mustang work on a ranger also?
