The front differential coupling sleeve and the propeller shaft may be misaligned, resulting in spline wear over time. As this wear progresses, abnormal noise and/or vibration may develop. Continued vehicle operation can eventually result in the splines shearing and loss of drive force to the wheels, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a revised design of the propeller shaft, flange kit, and heat shield kit to correct this concern.
