What does a differential do when a car is cornering?
For example, when your vehicle goes around a corner, the wheel on the outside must travel faster than the wheel on the inside. The differential distributes equal amounts of torque to both wheels. This permits the wheels to react to resistance, or provide traction, to give the wheel more resistance to rotate less.
Can you reuse ring and pinion?
If you over tighten the pinion when setting the bearing preload, you will have to replace the sleeve – it’s not reusable. For instance, if you have a leaking pinion seal and need to replace it, if using a crush sleeve, you will also need to replace the sleeve. If using a solid spacer, it is reusable.
How do you tell if you have a 7.5 or 8.5 rear end?
Another way to tell the difference between an 8.2 and an 8.5 rearend is to pull the cover and look at the bolt holding the spider gear crosspin. If it takes a 1/2-inch wrench to remove it, it’s an 8.2. If it takes a 5/16-inch wrench to remove it, it’s an 8.5.
