    The bolts on the left side of the cross member for the t case broke or came out and let that side of the cross member come down about 6 in. it caused a bad vibration and a tranny leak. I replaced the bolts that fixed the vibration but I found the tail end of the tranny has cracked where the top 2 bolts for the t case adapter go in. I had the cracks welded up but I just dont know how srong is a welded up tranny going to be? The guy is a good welder but I still feel uneasy. The worst part is the tranny only has about 7000 miles since it was rebuilt. Just my luck!!!
