Yeah, that's me he's talking about. My rear diff is poppin' pretty badly right now, and I think the easiest path is to just replace the entire axle, since I know squat about repairing a differential. I live in Medford, NY, and I often see other Cherokee drivers around. If anyone knows where I can get my hands on a good rear axle assembly, let me know, ok?

Thanks a lot. Looking forward to hearing from someone about this.

For most backyard mechanics like myself, replaceing the entire axle is the smarter way to go IMHO.

Look in junkyards or craigslist or ebay for a one at $200 or less.
