Yesterday I also forgot to mention that they have trouble with the spider gears in the differential. A cause for that in the ones that I ran across were because of the way they do their rear axles. They do not cut them and re-spline them. They use a method called, cut, lathe bore, lathe cut insert lathe cut peice of axle into lathe bored peice of axle and then weld the two peices together. If the axle warps during welding, it puts stress on the spider gears when you turn a corner eventually causing problems wearing them down due to axle not being true in length. Roger
