    2008 Escalade AWD Front Diff Blown

    Hey Folks

    My 08 has 186,000 km (110,000 mi) and my front diff has bitten the dust. the dealer say it has to be replaced (new $4600 plus tax 1 year warranty) (used $2400 + tax installed), unit is $1800).

    I called a couple of scrap yards and the want $1600 -1800 for the unit. Anyone have any advice? Can those be rebuilt and if so, Am i facing the cost of a new unit in internal parts and assembly? any leads on a good used unit?

    Cheers!!

    also check your local 4wd parts place, they specialize in it so maybe they can give you pointers in upgrades. that is what i will be doing when it's time. upgrade parts internally.

    jomor,

    Sorry to hear about your front diff. I had a rear diff go out on my 99 escalade, as I was towing a 6x12 trailer from California to Kentucky. It was spraying oil all over the trailer. I stop to take a look, and it was a hole in the diiff the size of a push pin. I had it towed to the nearest shop, and it cost me $4000 to replace. I was lucky I broke down in Shamrock,Texas. The owner of the shop and his wife drove all the way to Dallas/Fort Worth to pick up a new rear end for me. Had I been thinking I would have switch from the drum brakes to dics since it had to be replace. Good luck!!!!

    Thanks guys. shop gave me the part number off the case. GM 22761724. Thought i had one on ebay but it has a different part number . for 07 and up Yukon Sub . Is the diff the same for awd and part time? ie... is it the transfer case that makes the difference?

    I would think they are different. Our systems are awd where the yukon(non denali) and tahoe/sub is a 4 wheel lo/hi/auto system.
