Default Rear Axle - Differential

I'm hearing some noise coming from inside the differential. I'm decided to open it up and rebuild it but as a do it yourselfer I really need some help on what need to be replaced. If somebody already did it and could help me I appreciate.

You opened up your rear diff and have no clue on what to do? That was a good idea.

Here is how to install gears. Axles are easy and so is adding the LSD. Good luck.

Depends...what kinda noise

To do everything you need 2 axle bearings and seals,carrier bearings, pinion bearings, diff clutches, and ya might as well do gears if u dont already have them...and all that is assuming just worn out ****...hopefully no hard parts are hurt or broke
