rear differential

Postby m2102 » Sat Nov 16, 2013 8:02 am



I had my rear dif go out couple days ago and have been looking around for a replacement. I have a 2000 1500 se and was wondering if the rear dif and drive shaft from a 97 1500 aspencade will match up. need to get soon before I run out of riding weather. however for me as long as it's 20* or above i'm riding

Yes it will work for you.Pretty sure the only different ones were in the 88 and 89's.90 to 2000 are all the same.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

Thanks fatwing Chris. This is second time it went out. I replaced last year early in season. Knowing what I know now I should have researched more. Possible I may have gotten one out if a 89-90 and unknown mileage. When I did the change last year, I did it old school. Shade tree style with out the tree. On center stand and laying on the ground. Not fun but a learning experience. This time a friend of mine is letting me work on it in his home shop with a bike lift. Much better. Lt will take longer to take bags off and back on than the replacement

Just so we all know and not abasing here, just informing!
In the case of a motorcycle, that is a rear drive and not a differential!
A differential has the abitily to allow an inside wheel turn slower than the outside wheel in a turn in a cage.
Anyway, this is the first time I've heard of a 1500 losing the rear drive.

yes that is correct term tfdeputydawg. no comparison of any kind and I truly misspoke when I posted it. I do apologize for my stumble. to much time poking around cages and tinkering with them. after checking around I did learn that 88-90 1500's are different, final drive,brake rotors and more. fatwing chris I got one from fleebay off a 97 1500 aspencade with 61k miles. replacing my rear brake rotor with new from cyclemax. I plan on being up and running by next week. old saying is true, your never to old to learn. and i'm learning a lot
