Spider Gear
So I changed the gear oil in my rear diff. And noticed that I had a broken tooth on my bottom spider gear. Is this something that I need to change asap. Or is it just gonna continue to be noisy while i drive.

I'd get that fixed up asap! Not only will she continue to be noisy, she will get louder and eventually chew the hell out of the rear end. Especially if another tooth breaks off and stays somewhere in the carrier.

Can anybody explain the steps to changing out the spider gears. And is it something that i might be able to do in my driveway?

Take off brake rotors remove cross pin in carrier. Its the pin that runs thru spider gears push in axle shafts to remove c-clips then remove spider gears. Reverse process to re-install
