Re: Wasted time - new leaf springs

Good chance you popped the ball inside the CV joint. If your shaft angle is too great, the collar that holds the ball in place will rip off , the ball pops out and the two sides of the joint become un-centered. Result is heavy vib and noise (and t-case output bearing failure if you keep running it).

Edit: You may notice the flat spots on the joint where I ground it for more angle clearance. And you can also tack weld the collar to the joint to keep it the ball from popping as easily.
