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?

Good time to replace with a lock rite, Aussie or similar if you don't drive in snow or ice much.

if you do any offroading i'd take this time to replace the whole diff with at least a tru trac. i had one and loved it. no weird handling quirks like with a full locker, cheap, damn near indestructible and provide great traction. otherwise, beyond jeffs, a junkyard or ford, no i don't. i dont have mine anymore.

i got mine from ford. ran me about $160. i think getting them from ford will give you higher quality than a local parts place.

Sorry sackman9955 hole this helps.

I've gone to the Ford site (Ford Racing I believe), but I only saw entire differentials there. I'll consider upgrading, but it may be a bad time financially. I appreciate everyone helping out. I'm still new to the craft, but I do love a challenge.

I'm sorry you don't have 75 post and this is not the for sale section. So I feel lucky I'm not banned for tying to offer you something I shouldn't be.

I would get the cross pin also as there will be wear at the gear areas.

Fellas Relax!

I appreciate the help. So today, I removed the entire differential in order to inspect the bearings. I goofed up by not taking a picture of the bearing orientation, but it turns out that the bearing brackets have different part numbers stamped on them. Though they do not appear to be different in shape, I still want to install them as they originally stood. I believe that the chamfered side faces the outside. With that said, which bracket goes on which side? Any advice?

Talking

Any help? Trolley had the wrong set (non_ position) for me so I still haven't finished the install. I have the arrows facing outward but I'm not sure if they're on the right side. My ring and pinion mesh looks great.

Good call on the loctite.

I am just about done with the job, and all that is left is the install the S spring. I've gotten spring placed inside the carrier, however this prevents me from being able to install the C Clip that holds my axle from sliding out. Any advice here? I can start the clip on into the groove, but It wont go in much further. I believe hammering may not be a good idea...What do you guys think?

its been awhile since i messed with it. is the hole for the spring too smal ofr the c-clip?. my guess would be leave the spring in place, have the crosspin shaft out and try and put the c clips in. try to pry the spring alittle to get them started and tap them in the rest of the way.
