    Hey all got a quick question. My buddy has a 92 2500 we recently did the CV joints on. During the project the flange that the CV bolts to came out of the diff housing. We opened it to find that the C clip came off. Anyway we got it back on and everything worked for a while now it has slid back out of the diff housing again I am sure it is just the C clip again. Do we need a new C clip or could it be something more serious. Sorry so long any info at all would be great.

    Thanks Brian

    Thanks everyone. Bent the c-clip down a little that worked for a while then it came out again. Bought a new clip and it works great.
