#ETCGDadsTruck Axle/Differential Rebuild (Part 2)

This is (Episode 6) of the #ETCGDadsTruck Series.

Here is (Part 2) of the #ETCGDadsTruck Axle/Differential Rebuild. This video shows you how to tear down and assemble a 10 bolt (8.5” ring gear) differential. This includes replacing the gear set, the differential (with limited slip), axle bearings, pinion bearings, differential bearings, and all seals. It includes all the tools and torque specs you will need. I also show you how to check and set backlash and interpret a gear tooth pattern.

The vehicle in this video is a 1990 C1500 Sport, GMT400 (1988-1998)
