Rebuilding Rear Differential

Postby intimategems [OP] » May 21st 2015, 2:53am

Has anyone done this who could shed some light on how difficult it would be.

I recently purchased a 2003 Chevy Astrovan and am having problems I believe point to the Rear Differential.

Initially we had a sticky caliper that I replaced; however, I have a persistent problem of a thumping when turning in both directions...feels like busted bearings. The axle in the back is where it seems to be coming from and a mechanic that took a quick spin said he was 70% sure it was the rear differential.
