Ford Explorer rear axle shudder

I own a 2003 Explorer, 4.0 v6, w/93k. When turning either direction from a stop I get a shudder from the rear end. Ford has issue tsb # 17717 but I cannot fix the fix, only a description of the problem. Where can I find a fix I wondered? Cartalk, of course.

The TSB instructs that a new clutch pack kit be installed and then not tow with the vehicle for 500 miles until the clutches break in properly.

The clutch kit for the 9.75" limited slip diff is part number 6L1Z-4947-A, and the clutch kit for the 8.8" limited slip diff is part number F5AZ-4947-BA.


Thanks for the info Tester
