It looks like you have a crack in the axle casing:


Some Suzukis and a bunch of motorcycles.

I think that's just marks in the dirt from where the diff guard mounts.

iRTV silicone is great, never tried the 510 but reading the info on that link it looks like it's literally made for this.

not sure what peoples thoughts are with this but to get the diff out i've sometimes used a trolley jack just to help crack it, this is only when they literally will not come out. risk would be deforming the face it seals on but i've been lucky so far.

I've normally just used plumbing mastic when rebuilding diffs... and that's always been fine... in the past / with Vitaras

i'm not sure if it's the addition of the LSD in the front? Could it cause more twisting forces that could have unseated the diff in the axle casing?

i usually have to crack the seal with a specialist diff tool (a wood chisel!) to ease the two halves apart, but this time the diff was actually rocking against the axle it was that loose :blush:

Shouldn't be the diff getting hit, as it has a guard under it that is bolted to the driver's-side radius arm and clamped around the axle tube the other end, so I'm discounting that, hence the thought of the LSD?...

Just been to collect hubs back from local friendly garage...

£30 to remove old bearings and fit new... not too bad I thought?

And eldest daughter thankfully got her dates wrong! She's back to Oxford Uni' on Thursday not Wednesday, so I still get my day off tomorrow to start the rebuild B)

After watching Martin's Kingpin video I was intrigued and started my search... for a socket the right size to work as a drift for the kingpin bearing race...

After a couple of visits to tool suppliers armed with a vernier gauge...





A Teng Tools 24mm impact socket is just the right diameter... and less than a tenner (I got a discount so not sure of the retail price)



Sorted!

Many thanks to Martin...!

All cleaned and ready for the rebuild on Sunday now B)

They're known as "axle stands" and are used for "safety" Martin ;)

Thanks for the Kingpins Video! I've donated to the forum fund for how helpful it is, especially the socket-trick! ;)

Many thanks!

In reply to Martin's socket trick for taking out the kingpin bearing races...

Here's my little tool tip!

Take one old cheap pair of plumber's pliers -



And attack with an Angle Grinder, just to take the swivel bolt out...



Et Voila! A perfect oil seal pry bar!

You could even put a bolt back in to reconnect the pliers... B)

I use a Halfords Professional 1" socket. No use for the Imperial stuff other than that!
