Need help ASAP with d30

Ok my d30 threw a bearing and is out of commission. I have the differential cover off and got all the pieces out. But I need someone to give me some insight on how to replace it. Does it have only one bearing? Does it have a crush sleeve? Does the ring and carriers need to come out to fix it? Someone please help. And pictures would be amazing!

I would start by getting a free Service Manual from JeepsLimited.com - Home

ASAP rude? Not in my book, that only means as soon as possible... which is what I'd want if I was in the middle of fixing my axle & was stuck in the middle of the job and needed a little extra help to figure something out.

Yea I'm sorry but I'm pretty sure when my jeep is sitting like this saying ASAP isn't rude. That's what the forum is for

Good luck with this project. You best find someone with some experience. The front too me is a lot harder than the rear in setting the gears. If u need your jeep up and running fast get help. If not there is a lot of you tube and Internet info to help.

Not rude at all as ASAP is important when it is ripped apart. Follow the manual and post pictures with questions so we can help.

You will need to replace BOTH bearings on your pinion.... it must come out. This means the carrier will have to come out as well. MAKE SURE YOU KEEP THE SHIMS ORIENTED FROM LEFT TO RIGHT SIDES WHEN REMOVING THE CARRIER.

Don't just do bearings... you need to do the races as well. If your bearing came apart in pieces... EVERYTHING MUST BE THOROUGHLY CLEANED OF METAL SHAVINGS.

You may also find shims on the pinion gear OR BELOW the race against the housing.. be watchful for these. They will be important to reassemble and check.

Now... get those axle shafts pulled.... use the vid above.

You really shouldn't tackle this job without the aid of someone who has done it to help you.... it can be done... but the voice of experience is always a good guide.

Hopefully your ring and pinion gears arent chewed up... PICS! PICS! PICS!!!!
