I have just rebuilt the rear end in my silverado, and put new parts in it, but I am having trouble with something and I hope you could help. Alll the parts fit back in and everything is in its appropriate spot, the backlash is correct, the whole nine yards. I was just curious if you could help me by explaining why it is that the pinion gear is still able to move even though there is a new pinion seal, and its seated correctly, but for some odd reason the lock nut will not go back down as far as it was before, and I am able to push in the yoke a little bit even after I have it tightened down to the pinion gear. There was not a pinion seal on the truck when I took it apart and I was curious as to if this would have anything to do with it. Before the truck broke down I did not have any problems what so ever with the rear end.
have the same problem?
