I was changing the oil in my diffs today and noticed a few of the teeth on the spider gears were chewed up pretty good on my D35. I've been having a howling sound when cruising at highway speeds and thought it was the R&P. The ring and pinion looked good which surprised me because I was sure that's where the sound was coming from...can spider gears also howl/whine?
My TJ is still under warranty but i'd rather save the money from my deductible/car rental and do the gears myself. But if that's not the cause of the sound i'd rather just bring it in and have them hunt it down...and replace the gears
Any tips or tricks on replacing the spider gears?
