The Lady Duece,

Without dropping the third member it could be one of four things(axle,ring gear,spider gears,or pinion gear). By dropping the third member you will check one of these, the axles. You could have twisted one off. But these have to come out before the third member can be taken out so do that first. Four nuts and bolts on the axle housing and then pull the axles out. Be sure the truck is well supported with jack-stands.

If the axles still have splines on their ends then take the third member out because either the pinion gear or the spider-gears or the ring gear has broken. Drain the gear lube(this stuff stinks so don't get it on you). Then take the nuts off from around the third member to drop the third member from the housing. I think there are 12 or 15 of them. Not the 5 bolts that hold the pinion to the third member. Also this part that will be "dropping" out is very heavy and hard to hold so use a floor jack to catch it.

Good Luck
Scholman
