Anybody have a good source getting a new or rebuilt differential for a 2005 Dodge Durango 5.7 AWD. The front diff on the wife's truck is howling bad. Lately I haven't had good luck setting up gears so curious if anybody has a good resource for getting the entire front diff assembly.

You could bring it up for a visit. I have all the stuff here to do it. EBay looks like a good bet depending on the ratio.

Does the Dodge use IFS or a live axle?

If it is IFS it would be about the same amount of work to swap out the center section as to rebuild one I would think. Of course you would have to match the gear since it is a 4x4 and both axles need the same ratio.

If it is a live axle it is probably the same Dana 30 or Dana 44 used in the Jeep. I believe you said earlier it is a half ton so it is probably the Dana 44 (basically the same as a Chevy-Spicer 12 bolt rear). Once again swapping a whole rear (in this case front end) may be less labor intensive and as such faster to repair.

Just throwing it out for thought.

If you had access to a lift it would be a lot easier to just do the repair yourself with it in the car. They usually don't need new gears, just bearings. Even if the gears are a little worn if you set them up so the contact is in the middle of the tooth it will run quiet.
