Answer 1
definately sounds like a material defect i would be screaming for mfg to cover under warranty -
Comment 1
i thought warranty only covers 3 year or 30000 miles -
Answer 2
the load you are carrying could be a factor. what was all replaced?? if it was not set up correctly, that would cause pre mature failure. Roy -
Comment 1
dont carry much for loads but when i relaced it the first time i just replaced the spider gearswith beefier gears from jawsgears.com -
Comment 2
ok, i would check the carrier itself. if it is worn and the teeth mesh is off with the spiders, that will cause the failure. i always recommend using oem parts. aftermarket parts don't always mix well with old parts in the rear. -
