Good morning. I have a question for you smart folks. I have a 2009 Journey SXT AWD with the 3.5L. I have had a noise from the right rear for a while. I already replaced both rear hubs and brake calipers. I finally diagnosed it as a failed side bearing on the right side of the differential. Here is my question: I need to get new side bearings and races, along with the axle seals. I found the new seals easily. However, even Dodge can't give me a part number for the differential side bearings or races. This is a simple fix, and all they will sell me is a whole new differential. That seems ridiculous to me, especially since there is not a thing wrong with anything else in the differential. I have put side bearings in rear differentials a couple of times, and it's really a piece of cake on a workbench. Can any of you direct me to the correct side bearings? I know someone makes them, because you can find rebuilt ones available for sale. By the way, the Rear Differential part number is 5157002AB. Thanks in advance.
I own a 2013 Dodge Journey RT AWD with 112,000 miles on it. During a cross country trip the transmission pump went out resulting in a blown transmission. A Dodge dealership just installed a new transmission and I picked it up a few days ago. Now there is a thumping/rumbling sound coming from the rear of the vehicle that did not exist prior to the transmission being replaced. It almost sounds like there is a subwoofer in the back of the vehicle as the sound is very deep bass at low volume. I can hear it thump when I slowly accelerate and when coming to a stop. It is a constant rumble when I'm making slow turns in forward or reverse. I suspect that there is something wrong with the rear differential based on what I've read. I'm curious whether or not the service department damaged it or failed to calibrate something correctly when they installed the new transmission?
