    I yanked out the carrier to weld up the ol' spider gears and upon splitting the case, realized that all the metal shavings stuck to the magnet inside the housing were from the gears chewing on a broken cross-shaft. Any ideas why this happened? Any ideas how to replace it without trying to convince the local boneyard to let me rip apart an entire 14bolt just for this piece? Might I be able to create a strong spool without it? Any input will be appreciated. -Beck.

    Most driveline places and 4x4 shops can get replacement stock carriers. If I am not mistaken, Off-road Unlimited sold them and they were around $60 for a D44....

    Have you called the local Chevy dealer to see if you can buy just that cross shaft? It may not be too expensive.

    I'll bet a lot of those have been tossed in the trash can after Detroit Locker installations. I tossed mine years ago. [​IMG]
