I just stubbled across this site. car-part.com. it seems like a good site. u put in your year make and model and the part you are looking for and it gives you a list of used parts from different auto salvage places in your area and what kind of condition the part is in and how many miles it has on it.

Damn dude, you got lucky! Mine was all f'd up.

Here's what I'd do. I have a feeling you and I may be up for a class action lawsuit in the next year or so if they continue to blow. Keep EVERYTHING you pull out of it incase.

Then, screw the torsen. It's garbage. End of story. People will chime in here and say it's my opinion, but right here, you and I both have had em fail, so they're worthless.

Get yourself a Trac Loc. $265ish brand new from Summit Racing.

Next, order Yukon 4.11 gears with the install kit, replace your diff cover, and hope your axle splines weren't damaged.

I spent roughly $850-900 on my rear end rebuilding it, not including labor. But don't get another torsen... they're crap.

Here is a link(http://www.ford-trucks.com/recalls/r.../y-2002/t-4302). I have been debating on taking mine in to see if they will do mine before it goes out and leaves me stranded

Nope, Ford won't honor it. They say it was a TSB and not a recall. Least thats what they told me and it wasn't covered. In fact, they even denied the fact the manual's were recalled and tried to tell me that "even if they were hit with a shock load, the auto's and manuals are both completely different."

Ring and pinion install is something you should have somebody else do if you havn't the tools or knowledge. I tried to do mine but was lacking $400 in tools....so i had somebody else do the install.

no matter how you look at it...if there's a carrier change, there's also a new r&p setup charge to get the correct lash and correct pattern together.

what are yalls opinion on the trac loc vs. the torsen vs. the true trac. I for one had very good experience with the torsen. It hooked up great and showed no sign of wear until it just went. I found a good deal on a trac loc ,but how does is stack up compared to the torsen. I know the torsen is designed with the helixical gears and no clutches to wear out, but mine did. Just wondering which is better in the long run. I drive on the street alot but loved the 2 tire hookup from the torsen when wheeling.

true track is most like a locker compaired to all three choices given. i've seen them with one wheel in the air, and still putting a good amount of power to the wheel that's still on the ground.

Torsen uses Helical gears. TracLoc uses clutches. traclocs like to wear out about 50-75k.....then turn into an open pile of junk.

There's this Russian guy over in West Georgia who has a ton of Ranger stuff, I have his card at work, I think its called Ranger Sales...not sure though. He has all kinds of Rangers. I havnt talked to him in over a year, so I dont know if he is still in business, he sold parts(engines, complete axles, etc) as well as complete used trucks.

Jake, I personally love my trac loc. The difference between it and the torsen is the difference between night and day. My truck is a lot more responsive, and to be honest, my trac loc, with about 12K on it, is still as tight as the day it was put in. After the torsen gave out, the idea of another carrier with helical gears freaked me out, so I'm perfectly fine with my clutch's in my trac loc.

remember.....nothing against chuck...but chuck...how many miles did you get out of that torsen? 150k? Can't really compare a used up torsen to a brand spanking new and tight trac loc....

on the contrary..there are tracloc rebuilt kits that include new clutches and springs and such...so a rebuilt is a no biggie and it'll be just like new.

My dad ended up finding a 8.8 31 spline 4.10's with limited slip in commerce, ga from a guy that specializes in rangers. Its out of a 04 and it has 19k miles on it. I believe he paid $400 or $500 bucks for it. A steal and it has brakes, drums, lines, and all. Just need to bolt it in, bleed the brakes, and change the fluid. The bolts on the case have never been removed from it. Its basically new. I plan on trying to sell my old 8.8 diff. housing, axles, and brakes and all for $200 bucks or so. That would set us back about $300 bucks. Not bad for a completely destroyed l/s and r&p.
