Pulled the rear diff cover on my 91 XJ tonight to find this:




Anyone know how serious this damage looks and how hard of a fix it is?

That's actually a pretty easy repair.

Get yourself new spider and side gears.

Remove the brakes, remove the center pin, remove the c-clips, pull the shafts, remove/replace the spider and side gears, then reverse the general procedure above.

Good to hear its not an overly hard job...even though that list of things to do sounds..fun. Smile

Is there any write ups with pics etc on how to replace spider and side gears?
How much $$ are these gears going to run me?

Here you go. This is from my Super35. You will have to remove a hex bolt opposed to an hex key like I did. This is from a disc brake swap, but it should give you a pretty good idea on how easy it is.

They're pretty cheap and if you throw up a WTB post on a busier forum, you could get them pretty easily.

Thanks for the links guys. It does look fairly simple to pull the axles out, but after I do that how do I actually get the gears out of the diff and place the new ones in?

They will rotate. Just spin them until they are in the opening and remove them.

Trust me once you pull that pinion mate shaft and that chrome looking H shapped thing they will practically fall out. Very Happy

Aha ok sounds fairly simple. Is the installation of the gears as simple as taking them out?
Also I was thinking of just hitting a junk yard and trying to grab new gears out of an XJ, would be much cheaper and dont know if its worth putting a locker in my D35...?
