Looks like most of the spider gear failures are due to housing flex - as the case (housing) flexes it opens the backlash between the spider gears...
the good ol' t-5's in the stangs and fbodies failed a lot due to the case flexing and causing the gears to not contact eachother correctly.
Has anyone taken note of this happening more in frontiers/exterras that do not have the ALDS (the system where the brakes are applied to a spinning wheel to act like a limited slip diff)?
I've been in some deep mud with my foot mashed to get through it, the rear diff locked and it plowerd right through it, spinning all 4 pretty equally from what friends nearby said and the mud flinging...
