Differential Spider Gears
This weekend I went in to replace my U-Joints, as I suspected that they were the cause of a high pitch sound, as well as a banging sound during my automatic transmission shifting gears. When I removed my drive shaft, I found that the U joints were in good shape. I did find that there was an enormous amount of play in my differential. After taking off the cover, I found that spider gears were completely destroyed.
I only want to replace the spider gears, however most places that I look, all I find is the entire differential. I'd like to put new gears in instead of going to a junk yard. Does anyone know of a good place where I can find this?
