you need to replace the complete carrier?
you need to replace the complete differencial carrier?
I went in thinking that I had to replace the front wheel hub assembly, but the tech says that the noise I heard was 'referred' and originating from the differential. Since they don't repair those, I don't have much more info than that.
if it isnt the hub[bearing]and it is the differencial
these arent cheap
you may concider buying a used unit from you local salvage yard
i will get you the price
give me just a moment
He tells me that the hub bearing is definitely making noise, but that repair is secondary to the noise coming from the differential I am wanting to know can it be just the bearings and not the entire differential per se
