Range Rover Classic Front Axle/Differential
The Range Rover's front axle is an extremely rugged beam axle design, comprising a one-piece steel tube with a seperate cast steel differnential housing.
All of the component parts of the axle, such as the differential assembly, halfshafts adn C.V. joints, can be removed and replaced with the axle in sitr, It is rare for a Ragge Rover to reqire a complete replacement acle and for ths season we have avoinded listings full axle assemblies. Neverless , if you should require a complete unit, please contact our sales department for price & availability (remembering to quote the year and VIN number of your vehicle, along with the serial number of the axel).
D.I.Y. Overhaul of the diferential assembly is not really vialbe, due to the specialist tools and skills required, so we list complete differential assemblies.
The serial number of the front axle is stamped on the front or top of the axle casing, on the left hand side (roughly in line with the acle breather). Serial numbers comprise a 3-figure code, identifying the axle typem, followed by the serial number and then a suffix letter (A, B or C).
the final drive ratio for all models is 3.54:1
ABS was introduced in 1990 (VIN GA), necessitating some changes to the front half shafts and C.V jounts, In order to simplify this compicated area, we have divided the relevant parts into two categories: non- ABS vehicles and ABS- Equipped vehicles. It is important to bear this in mind when ordering parts, due to the safety-critical nature of ABS-related components.
