Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
ok, when the seal is done on the rear pinion the rear drive shaft and yoke have to be removed when this is remove the pinion will loose its preload, but after replacing the seal the mechanic is supposed to reset the preload before installing the axle and releasing the truck, its possible that the preload was not set the first time, and you drove the vehicle causing damage to the pinion bearings and when you went back to them it was to late the damage was all ready done, this will know be a permanent scar on the pinion bearings.you will need to replace the pinion bearings and reset the pinion load.
so if i tell the dealer that is what needs to be adjusted will that take long to do? do they do this from the back of the diff or remove the cover and go into the front, it is a anti spin diff also does it need the friction additive or not wasnt sure if it was still used on a 2006
