Hello truck freaks,
A question from an overseas truckfreak here.
My '88 K15004X4 has a "klunk" in the rear diff whenever i shift into D or R.
And when its parked (only in P) i can move my truck about 2inches forth and
back. I know i ám looking at a rebuild, but is there i can do in the
meantime, like use a thicker oil or something?
Heerlen, Netherlands( the cheese country)
I'm going to ask a question that I don't know.. but I'd like to see if this
would help my truck as it has a little clunk to it aswell..
How exactly do you go about pulling the drive shaft from the transfer case?
you unbolt the two straps on the pinion yoke, push in (towards the transfer
case) slightly to get it out of the yoke, then just pull it out. make sure
you have an oil pan of some sort under the slip yoke as you'll get an ATF
bath if the truck has the front end jacked up in any fashion.

Sorry Adair, thought it was self explanitory! Bret hit the nail on the
head.............it literally just "pops out" after it's been disengaged
from the pinion straps. If yer' pinion strap bolts are being difficult and
you can't get them loose with a box wrench, use a wobble extension and the
correct socket size; you'll round the bolts off using a straight extension
or just a socket on a ratchet due to clearance issues (you'll see what I
mean). Use either Valvoline Durablend synthetic blend grease or Mobil 1
full-synthetic grease. On my girl, durablend is good for 4-5 months, Mobil
is good for 9-10 months.
