Default Re: Locked-up rear end

Put the rear end up on jack stands, put the tranny in gear, then turn one rear wheel by hand and see if the other rear wheel turns the opposite direction. It should turn smoothly without clunking and binding. If it does, then the spider gears are likely good.

BTW, I've seen brake lining bind up a rear end.

Does the gear shift feel normal as you move it through each gear?
