Rebuilding Or Regearing The Differential In Your Truck Or SUV
All rear wheel drive cars, trucks, and SUVs have one thing in common; they have a rear differential that transfers the power from the transmission to the rear tires. While they may be a little different in design, they all have the same basic components that work the same way. Understanding how the differential works is essential to doing any work on it. How It Works Essentially, the rear differential is a gearbox that contains a ring gear, a pinion gear, two to four side gears, and a carrier that connect all the parts.
