Rear differential need maintenance?? Rob Abel 11-10-02  
With all the weight begin pushed or pulled, it would seem that the differential would be a major source of wear at some point. Do these show wear? At what point? I had a Suburban (truck, not RV) that trashed it's rear differential by about 100,000 miles.

How do the Class A diffy's hold up?

My '85 suburban has 165,000 miles on it. At 100,000 miles I had the transmission (4 spd manual) and the differential drained and refilled. The diff. showed very little wear. I pull a 26' Prowler. I don't understand why yours went bad.

My 96 jeep cherokee has a clicking noise when i brake, and the abs light comes on untill the click has occured. a mechanic told me that this is my rear differential failing at 90,000 miles. and I am led to believe that this is an indication of bad u- joints. I am just looking for some advice.
sincerely, jason buchanan

The mechanic said because it was a half-ton, the diffy was lighter duty = same diff. that was used in some passenger vehicles (vans) - just couldn't take the stress. Never towed more than a fishing boat - 2000 pounds.

Glad to hear the motorhome differential seems to hold up. Certainly not a common problem anyhow.
