definately sounds like a material defect i would be screaming for mfg to cover under warranty

i thought warranty only covers 3 year or 30000 miles

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

dont carry much for loads but when i relaced it the first time i just replaced the spider gearswith beefier gears from jawsgears.com

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.
