Thats it! No more fixing it!
My dana 60's suck! I can't keep my 5:13 gears from exploding; noises, chipped teeth, and lots of money... I just had my rear ring and pinion swapped and i've babied it and the only bad ting I did was drive to a job site which was 28 miles away when the first initial drive was to be only 15-20 miles for break in procedure! If I give half throttle I hear a ratchet like sound or like a small light gauge metal banging and vibrating. I'm not fixing these again, its getting exspensive escepially the front axle! I heard the sound of breaking teeth on sunday when I drove a little in 4-wheel drive. So in conclusion, the rear makes noise under throttle and the front could be missing teeth.....
I need to talk to Daniel from <a target="_blank" href=http://usa6x6>usa6x6</a> and find out about those big 2 1/2 rockwells! :-) Those can handle the little abuse I give and then some. There alot of money but piece of mind is priceless, enough said!
I think I will buy a new 2002 v-10 quad cab 4x4 for work and some fun and probaly plowing here for the state of Mass.
The bad thing here is 2, yes 2 vehicles down with axle problems, my 89 jeep wrangler with blown spider gears in the rear from too much air time with a heavy foot! It sure did blow away my friends attempt to climb that steep hill in which he tried it in a suzuki thing but could not make it as hard as he tried. I was able to still drive home, just in 4x4 and the bad thing is the 4 cylinder had no clutch left, the slave cylinder had been leaking and then wouldn't work at all after a couple weeks of slight leaking. Oh well!
