sterling 10.25 Q's

i have a lot of slop in my rear diff at the pinion i blew the last one out completely and i dont want that to happen again i have no idea how to set up gears when the last diff went i just swapped in a whole new one ......what i was wondering was if there is anyone in the kelowna area that would sit down with me with some beers or etc.. and fix it with me so that next time i have this problem i will be able to fix it myself

anyway thanks.

my pinion had a bit of slop, sterling, welded, and heavily abused ant it never blew up on me. guy at a shop told me it would probly never be a proble,. and he ran 38s and a big block and welded on his. so id say leave it, should last longer than the brakes anyway.

haha first one was from pulling a a guy out of a mud pit thats what started it all ripped a bunch of teeth off the ring gear and proceeded to limp it out of postill i did make it out but as soon as i made it 1/2 home the rear end locked up and spit the driveshaft out so it got a few dents etc and that was just before i moved to dawson creek so installed a new 10.25 and its pinion gave out on me one day when i was downshifting down a hill as i was just about to pull into my house so i got lucky there and so i installed another 10.25 so im assuming it being a diesel and my shaft possible being out of balance and ...i may drive my truck like a race car and all stock drive line until a few months ago when the lift was installed

you think doing just the bearings will fix the slop? im thinking it needs shimming i can turn my drive shaft back and forth like 3-8ths to a half inch...ish if that makes sense

Dude i have never heard of them failing so much. Mine needed a full set of bearings years ago...but thats cuz there was water sitting in the diff before i bought it and the bearings were pitted. Howled like a mofo for 2 years first though
I'd say your drive shaft is to blame. Spend the money on a good and straight one. Sterlings are tough as nails so shouldnt be that many issues. Have you reused the pinion nut? If it loosens off it can cause a failure. Should always use a new one.....or lots of loctite

Is it sideplay in the pinion or excessive backlash? Sideplay could be from over tightening the pinion nut, over crushing the crush sleeve causing to much pinion bearing preload which would fry your bearings.Backlash could be a carrier bearing gone bad and worse case your housing or bearing cap is worn letting the case walk over.

i believe it is the drive shaft shaft as well i guess fu toolbag may have one i jut have to get around to measuring mine up and i did notice my nut was loose i have snugged it up but i guess if you get a chance to look at it this weekend we may have a better idea whats going on
