TR6 Differential / Rear Axle


Freshman Member
Country flag
Evening everyone. I have a couple of questions about my 73 TR6.

1)Can the axle shaft bearing and oil seal on the differential be changed w/o dropping the whole differential?

2)I was looking at GoodParts Axle/Hub Assembly, CV Joint kit for the stock differential. Has anyone used these and if so what were your experiences?
Did you like them? Ease of installation, etc. I know some grinding of the trailing arm housing is required to remove any ridges.

Thank You in advanced for any answers suggestions etc.

Thank You

1) The Bentley manual, p. 339, section 51.10.02 has an operation: "Inner shaft bearing and oil seal - remove and refit" which is done wth the diff on the car.

2) When I bought my '74 TR6 last August, my mechanic replaced the hubs with GoodParts' - he liked them a lot. Reasonable price and assembled ready-to-go.

Be careful of stripping the studs on the soft aluminum trailing arms. Pattonmachine.com has repair kits for this problem. I haven't done this but it seems like a good idea.
