    Was driving down the road today and I heard a "ping" noise come from my rear end... The rear end did a little wiggle at the same time... I still have a major clonk between shifts and between accelerating/decelerating... I think she's about to disassemble herself. What's the most cost effective...

    Did a search but could not find anything. This past weekend I noticed a clunking out of the rear suspension while going over speed bumps etc. Any ideas? Thanks Guys!

    I'm expecting jokes, but it is a serious question... I thought I may have had a universal joint issue, but it turns out my rear end has a lot of play/slop that is causing it to clunk between shifts and when I first move the truck... I don't know much about rear ends, so what could it be? Thanks!

    I was just wondering about the lucky few that got a rear end with disc brakes form David. What else has to be done when one of these gets installed in a truck that had a drum brakes?

    110, Salisbury rear axle...trying to nail down this noise. I'm stumped. I pulled apart the other side (passenger) last night thinking it was coming from there, but obviously I was wrong. It really starts to kick in around 0:30... To make matters worse, I'm...

    Hello my rear end is rotting out and I have some leakage. -- Let the jokes begin-- But seriously it is a 1994 D90 3.9 5-speed and the rear end is looking pretty bad. I was wondering what my options were. Can I just find the housing and replace it? Who might have one for me? Will a rear end...

    Anyone ever fit Disco disc brakes on a Defender Salisbury rear end ? (as to why, first they are more effective at stopping, 2nd they are cheaper in the US,) I'd hate have to replace the whole rear end with a Disco rear end, because I like the added strength of the Salisbury

    I just had an alignment done at a local shop. The rear end toe is -.47 on the left rear and -.56 on the right. They said they would expect the truck to pull badly. I havent really noticed anything. Anybody have any ideas? We did just install a wolf rack, new shocks and 1.5 spacers....

    Hi all, it's been a while since I've posted anything. My poor rover has turned into a bit of a garage queen and doesn't get driven as much as she should. I took her out the other day for a bit of exercise and noticed that I have a bit of chatter from what seems to be coming the rear end. Once...

    Er,I mean the rear bumper ends! Safari Gard or similar... I'm considering to have a pair fabricated on my own, I'd modify the design though so to make them as minimal as possible. Anybody willing to take some good pics please? Especially the way they bolt on the crossmember and the lateral...

    I'm fighting two problems, tracking and rear end steering. All all ball joints and bushings new. OME 766 & 751's. I don;t run sway bars and really don;t want to. Has anyone tried the DAP rear link bushings that help with rear end steering? What about the rovertym radius and rear links? Will...
