Ok, think I might have an issue with the front diff. I just have a quick question, I have a 2002 Escalade AWD. What years are compatable with that front diff? By that I'm meaning can I get one for a 2002 - 2006, or do I need to stay with the 2002? Thanks.

Just wanting to know what years will work in my 2002 Escalade AWD. I have a guy that has a 2007 front diff, but don't think it will work. Can I use 2002 - 2006, Someone out there????

You have to see what the problem is, if it's bearings or the gears it would still be cheaper to replace them rather than replace the front axle even if you got one for free. I am pretty sure the 07's are several inches wider and would probbaly not work, not sure if they made any changes from 02-06. Maybe Bill will chime in. :)

Ok, well it isn't whining or making the noise but I am getting a wheel grab or hop when turning at low speeds, like in a parking lot. Strange thing is that is doesn't do it when I first start driving the vehicle only after I have been driving it for about 20 minutes or so. It has me stumped.

Did you change the gear oil? Add synthetic?

Yeah, changed and went to synthetic, checked power steering fluid levels, replaced hubs, new rotors and calipers. Down to the diff or transfer case. I do have some fluid on the outside of the power steering pump though
