    Driving home from work, coasting downhill, wicked vibration from rear of truck, then some strange noises from rear of truck.

    Pinion nut was about a turn to one and a half turns loose, there are chunks missing from the yoke, and after tightening the nut, the pinion is still loose.

    Yeah, I'm kind of torn right now, just throw some bearings and a yoke/u-joint in it, or just swap it out for another set of 1/2t's with some decent gears in them. Need to do something to have it driveable till I can swap the 1 tons in. Which looks like it's a long way off.

    Hate like hell I missed it, looks like a good time. I'm very glad it did happen close to home, not up in uwharrie.
