The Indestructable Ford 9\"... yeah right Is there something I am missing on this axle? My friend put one under his 84 F150 with 35s and has blown the sucker 3 times in the last oh 8 months. Last time was today, we went for a drive then came back and I got my K5. We jumped in and went to head to my house he chirped them pulling out and BAM. Started making a nasty noise and he backed into the driveway. Pull the axles and third member, both main caps that hold the carrier were busted right out as well as pretty much every bearing in the thing and the ring and pinion are chipped badly.
