Maintenance how-to video: How to Overhaul the Ford 8.8" Rear Axle by Kenneth Collins 5_bulb Review this video!

How to Overhaul the Ford 8.8" Rear Axle - Disc 1

This dvd shows you hands on overhaul instructions of the Ford 8.8 Rear End, Now including Aluminum IRS and 9.75" Repair Info. This updated and copyrighted video includes; tool overview, axle disassembly, inspection, bearing replacement, use of the Ford pinion depth tool, setting backlash and tooth pattern, final assembly, repair tips and includes Aluminum IRS rebuilding procedures. These rears are used in the Mark 8, 99+ model Cobra and late Explorer. Scenes show how to use a housing spreader, finding carrier bearing shim size by using Ford&'s dummy bearing tool set and I even threw in a segment on replacing the pinion crush sleeve with a solid spacer. Also see chapters on Traction-Lok Overhaul and 7.5"rear end comparison. Newly added video chapter on the 9.75" rear end found in 97 and later F150's and Expeditions. Segments include repair similarities to the 8.8" as well as the very different rebuild procedure needed for the 9.75" traction-lok carrier. There are six scene segments on each of the two DVD disk's (check disk format compatibility below) to quickly view or review information. He has added helpful tips, alternative methods for setting pinion depth and clutch pack clearance.

Enjoyed the video learned a good bit. If you have never done a rear-end the this would be worth renting.
