    JUst got back from some snow wheeling up around the broken top area. I was doing fine untill I broke a shock bolt and Damaged something in the dana 60. IT makes a nice growling noise. I took it apart when I got back to see what was wrong. I checked everything. The gears are fine the spider gears are fine the carrier bearings are fine. I was spinning the pinion and I notice that it was not spining right. What I found was the inner pinion bearing race broke. I have no clue how it broke. So now its snowing hear I have no 4x4 and My 38 cepeck's are bald. Guess I am going to have to put my swampers back on or slip and slide with my cepecks and locker.

    Damn that sucks.


    Only reason I can think of and have seen as to why races brake is because something is rubbing to hard and/or not enough fluid/grease
