    image.jpeg image.jpeg Worked 11 hours today and went for a joyride. Hit second gear with the hammer dropped and BOOM! Broke the aluminum cast diff and grenaded the internals. Pinion maybe? No power to the rear. I'll look at it more tomorrow.

    This is the second one this week that we have seen on the forum. I really hope this isn't a new weak point...going to be terrible having to replace that.

    I would bet the spyder gears. That is, if my past experiences with dodge/ram rears tells me anything.

    Who else did it? I searched but couldn't find anything. See what the dealer says on Monday.

    What is so "terrible" about swapping a rear?

    Did you have a squeak when coming on and off the power before the failure? It looks like your mount broke in the same place as mine

    Tech should get star involved with repairs, I bet this part is on restriction or watched for stock orders. Chrysler monitors potential and can more suited to be preemptive with parts availability. Let us know what is the fix and end result as to what the heck happened

    Your info is valuable to me because I have a m6 car also
