Pinion Bearing

I need it replaced anyways I'm paying to have it done and not getting involved. Anyways should i just replace that or should i rebuilt everything even if the components are OKAY? I'm having a Differential and Axle shop do the work this is all they do. They said if the components are fine there's no point. The way i saw it while your in there you mine as well, they disagreed...

There really is no need to replace anything in there unless you have to. If you have a LSD you could rebuild it but other than that I wouldn't touch anything.

To do it right they should check the backlash and pattern, pull the carrier anyway, so I would do the whole thing. Not sure why they are saying otherwise.....what are they charging you for the job? Warranting it?

For a full rebuild $600 with 5 year 100k warranty just like my transmission

Damn, that seems awful high, parts are about 150 for a full rebuild kit, so 450 for labor.

How much for just the pinion and is there a warranty on that? I ask b/c if the carrier bearings go then you're rebuilding anyway.
I have no idea why they would not do the whole thing, like I said you should check the backlash, pionion bearing preload, and pattern after chaning the pinion bearings, why not do the carriers while at it? Should take a shop no more than an additional hour to pll the bearings/races and reinstall the new ones.

Replace only what is needed.

Only start thinking about gears and complete rebuild if you are going to larger tires.

Bearings and seals, basically an overhaul. The cost of the additional parts is insignificant when rebuilding an axle, and you should recheck/set it up anyway, so why not?

You'd be better off swapping in a used axle from a JY in my honest opinion.

Does that $600 include remove and reinstall? If so, that's really not bad at all, and for a 100K warrantee, I'd say do it.

I just had all the bearings and seals replaced in my '02 Ranger. Had to because one of the carrier bearings went bad. The shop did both carrier bearings, inner and outer pinion bearings/seal and both axle bearings and seals and it was just a hair over $600 for mine. But I'd say do it all while it's being done. You'd hate to have something you didn't replace go out soon and have the expense of the labor again. Just my opinion.

Just put it in 4wd. Install a trailer axle in the rear and have a FWD truck. lol jk

Like you said...while they are in there, they should do it. Why not? If they are making money from a customer, then they shouldnt argue.

I always pull the axles myself, making sure they are in a low mileage vehicle and I ALWAYS pull the diff cover and look at everything. Never had a problem before doing it.
Either way, it was just a suggestion

Good luck w/ the axle rebuild. FWIW, I had a full rebuild kit done on my disc 8.8 swap for $265.00, NO warranty though. 100K mi warranty for $335 is well worth it.

Seems strange that the shop wouldn't want to go ahead and do the extra work to make the extra $...but I guess it's better than them going the other direction and trying to get the customer to do a bunch of unnecessary work.
