Re: Differential pinion mount/bushing replacement

Just did this the other day and it was about a 3 hour job. Pain in the butt to get the old ripped bushing out. Wasnt so bad putting it back together.
It did take care of the problem with the rough shift from R to D, but now I still have the popping noise when turning! I was hoping ist would cure that also. I have no idea what it could be.

Re: Differential pinion mount/bushing replacement

Good job! Excellent write up! The dealer at Jeep Hilltop in Richmond,CA quoted over $1000 to do this on mine. I think I will fallow your lead.

Re: Differential pinion mount/bushing replacement

How much more work is it to undo the half shafts and pull the whole thing out to work on it?
