Interesting but sad, and sorry SB to go through what you are going through.

Now I just dropped my car at a mechanic to install a rear differential.
the diff I will install is Dana 44; he mentioned also 41-11 => anybody knows what that 41-11?

We are short of professional mechanics and the Jeep agent is very expensive (I live in the UAE).

No warranty will be provided on the installed Dana 44 as it is second hand.

Question:
How could make sure the installation is done properly?

total cost of Dana 44 (used one) and the labor is US$ 1,000.

It is TJ 98 having 285,000 KMs that is about 178,000 Miles.

Another question: what causes a diff to bust ( I was having a clunking sound especially when I am turning).

Appreciate your feedback.

Regards,,,
Al

I am not sure what 41-11 is. Could he have mentioned 4.11's? That could be the gear ratio of the new axle or what gear ration you need. Make sure that both gear ratio's front and rear match or else it could be bad when you put it in 4 wheel drive.

it only has to be beyond a reasonable doubt, not shadow of a doubt.

pick it up, take it somewhere else. keep all your receipts in case you do decide to sue. i think it'd be an uphill battle though with a 1 yr warranty. it is crazy shady though and 100% caused by a bad install. that guy is a crook. run away from him but tell everybody you know he is a crook.

Thanks for the advice;
How could I make sure that the gear ratios front and rear are identical?

Since the mechanic installed only a ring gear plus the pinions, do I still have to worry about re-gearing.

I have a 2" lift with 32" tires (BFG Aall Terrain).

What is the best test I should do to make sure things are installed properly, so I do not have to go through what the author of this thread is going through.

ring gear and pinion is the parts that are required to change the gear ratio.


just ask the mechanic to make SURE that both front and rear is the same gear ratio. i do know that on the older full size jeeps, not sure about the cj's but when they had the hd dana 44 up front and the amc 20 rear it was 4.10 in the rear, and 4.11 in the front from the factory

Damn good call. I didn't even think of that. If you have 3.73 gears that would make more sense that your front and rear gears are the same. If this is the case you will still have to regear to a higher (or lower not sure of the terminology) gearset like 4.10's if you want to regear. I wouldn't even worry about it with 32's for right now. I was running 3.55 gears on 35's.
