Got the dif cover off and found that the pinion is damaged.
The front seal went bad. No fluid at all at the rear end once the cover was removed.
The rack seems to be real good shape.
Now 2 questions:
1) Can just the pinion be replaced or it has to be rack & pinion?
2) Any special way or trick to remove the pinion?
We got the nut out but this baby doesn't want to come out at all. We got tired of hammered it.
We are trying to upload pics but we can't due the size of the files.
