    image.jpeg image.jpeg so I noticed a squeak every time the rear end loaded up / unloaded ( shifting from forward to reverse or on and off the throttle) I would have a squeak. I figured it was going to be a torsion bar ect as when I lifted the body I did not get a sound, well it wound up being a broken diff housing

    It only has 6600km on her, stock tires, I'm thinking a casting fault maybe, I haven't heard of anyone else with the issue, warranty is covering it thankfully

    I'm not too sure I don't drive it overly hard and I never ran it from a low traction to high traction surface, when I'm back in town I will have a closer look at it and see how the metal failed

    Just thinking of ways to break that cast. May have just been defective, our big torque numbers are tough!

    Wheel hop is hard on things, coupled with the torque and stuff will break. I've noticed my Charger will wheel hop fairly easily. Time for an upgrade in the back bars.

    Good luck on getting the replacement in and everything back to normal.
