Your vehicle’s differential takes power (torque) created by your engine then transmits it to the drive axle(s), which makes your wheels rotate. When making turns, your differential allows the outside wheel to rotate faster than the inside wheel where at different speeds helps your automobile improve traction also extending tire life, helping fuel economy & making your vehicle safer to drive. Hence the importance of properly maintaining your differential, which is required on all differentials. Hence which will help make your investment last.

Rear Axle Bearings

Differential Shop

I am very pleased to say that I have found the auto repair facility that I have been looking for for many years! I have an older Jeep Grand Cherokee and it had been making a very loud howling/scraping noise for some time. I took it to a franchise repair shop and they told me it was definitely the rear axle bearings that were bad and that was causing the noise. Well, about $900.00 later, my car still made the same noise. I searched the web and came across Last Chance Auto Repair in Plainfield, IL., and decided to give them a try. I called and spoke with Ron and he said to bring the car in and they would check it out and see what the problem was. I brought it in and Ron said he would get back to me with the information on what was wrong and what would be involved in the repair. Ron called me and told me the problem was in the differential and that the rear axle bearings generally would not cause the noise he heard on the test drive. Ron offered three alternative solutions - replace the differential with a rebuilt/aftermarket one, rebuild the differential, or replace the defective parts in the existing differential. Obviously the pricing varied greatly with the cost for the replacement of the differential being the most expensive and the repair of the existing one was the least costly of the three. I asked Ron what he would do it it was his car and he said he would recommend repairing the existing differential. I would have went with whatever solution Ron recommended and was very pleased with his honesty. Ron and Mike (35 years of experience with Chrysler) made the repairs and the car runs beautifully and the noise is gone. The cost I paid was much less than what Jeep was quoting (without seeing the car) to cure the problem. I was treated with respect, given and honest assessment of the problem and the cost to repair, and made to feel like I was important to them. I will be taking both of my cars in to Ron from now on, and I will be recommending Last Chance Auto Repair in Plainfield, IL, to all my friends and family members.
