09 Prowler Rear Differential Problems

I experienced a problem with my 09 Prowler jerking when you try to take off from a dead start or at a rolling start. It did not do it when in 4 wheel drive. I discovered that the rear driveline was turning as much as 3 or 4 revolutions before rearend would engage. This machine has the turf saver rear differential. I removed the rearend and found that the spool was welded so you could not take apart. I ground the welds off and dissassembled and found that there are a type of clutch pack on each side. Mine was damaged beyond any repair on one side. So to make a long story short I was wondering if anyone has removed there limited slip differential and installed a spool from a older model. If so do you have the correct part #'s. This gear assembly is upwards of $700.00 everywhere I have looked online and the comparable older gear/spools are around 150.00 in the older models. I have compared the parts diagrams and numbers to several other models and everything seems to be the same except for the pinion tooth numbers and the spool with the ring gear. My pinion is 10 tooth and the ring gear 36 tooth. I can't afford to spend 700 plus dollars to repair this rearend so any help would be appreciated.

the 3.6 gear ratio spool from atv should work fine,they are the same diffs. A 2005 500 man trans atv had 3.6 gears.

4.0 gears

I would put the 4.0 gears in it as well,but it will require you changing the front axles because the inner axle stub/spilnes are bigger on the 4.0 diffs!

If that's the case contact the guys at CV Restoration and they can get you just the inner CV joints you need. You will not have to buy complete new axle assemblies and they are really easy to service.
Scott was the guy I worked with and he is really helpful.

I have replaced mine with a regular spool type gear. The jerky take off is gone, much happier now. I found out the hard way that you will need to change rear axles, I dont know how I didnt notice before that they used front axles in the rear diff for the turf saver.

If you want to stick with 3.6's then order a set out of a 07 700 efi and if you want 4.0's then you will need to order both front and rear crown and pinions from a 650 prowler.
