So, anyone else F\' up their 14 bolt like this? *pics added* Last night I was pulling out of a parking lot, and gunned it and the rear started vibrating really bad, I thought it was just wheelhop and laughed it off then jumped on the gas peddle again in traffic but the vibes continued. Drove for about 1 minute and parked got out and look under. The driver's side u-bolts had come loose and the spring perch was sitting about 20 degrees away from the block. The kicker was, the other side was still attached tightly. Upon closer inspection, the pumpkin had turned upwards with the driver's side tube causing a hellaciously bad angle on the pinion. I couldnt see very well because it was dark, but it looked like the passenger side tube somehow turned inside of the housing, causing them to be at different angles. I was still able to drive it home, and it hasnt been gushing fluid, but some gear oil has dripped off the bottom of the pumpkin. As soon as I get my puter un-f'ed up, I'll post pics (yes, my puter and my burb f'ed up on the same day /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif). This has me peeved because now I'm a broke college student living 200 miles away from my shop. Luckily, I have another 14 bolt housing at my shop, but it'll need new spring perches. Man this makes me wicked pissed. The only complete spare axle I have is a 14 bolt SF in another truck that is not running so I may yank that one, put it in the burb, take the burb back home, take my 4.56's and detroit from the fubar'd axle and put them in the new housing, then put my hubs and disk brakes from the fubar'd axle on the new housing, as well as spring perches. This is all kinda strange too, I had just drove almost 800 miles round trip this weekend and the damn thing finally let go when I had gotten back to school. So, anyone ever had anything like this happen before? Here you can see my new driveshaft angle Here you can see how exactly the driver's side tube and differential is sitting right now This is how loose the u-bolts got This is what the u-bolts should look like Here is the passenger side, still intact Here you can see how far the axle turned. Before the incident, the T-fitting for the brakeline was about 1/2" away from that wertical bracket, now its about 6"
