Hey- so yesterday (Wednesday) I was able to get a ride to my truck. Unbolted the punctured rear diff cover- there were small gears in there- one was completely in tact, the other one was in pieces. There are other components that are all messed up and broken. So I cleared all the missing parts out of the diff housing- bolted the cover back on to keep dirt out- put in neutral- and was able to pull my truck. (The broken small gear was wedged to make the big gear not spin).
So I have a 2002 Chev Silv. 1500 5.3ltr. 4X4 LS.
I dot know the names of the parts- I'm on Oreiley's website and in the rear differential section. Yet I don't know what all I need. Want to get the most iportant things repaired so I can get back to work- and replace others when I can.
Since the wheels were able to turn freely in neutral- I don't think anything else was broken- is there a way I can send you pictures?
