I let my ego get the better of me the other day and blew up the rear end in my frontier. An infinity fx 35 thought it had raced me and won when I had never attemped to race him. I was driving along normally and he came up beside me and took off. I didn't think much of it, but I layed into the throttle for a second and noticed the gap between us shrinking quickly. I then let off and said it wasn't worth my gas, to myself. Then he threw on his flashers like he had just smoked me.... GRRR he was turning and I wasn't at the next light, as I rolled by him I could see him jeasturing through the tinted windows. That is about the time the ego kicked in. I then backed up and rolled down my window. He was smiling and gloating. I proceded to tell him that I hadn't even attempted to race him but he was shouting some kind of smack that I couldn't hear over the semi beside me. Then I reved her to the moon and dumped the clutch and Bang! Pow! Boom! clank clank clank, as my driveshaft rattled on the pavement. Ugh! face palm. I pushed the truck out of the road with the help of a passer by and looked under to inspect the damage. I had sheared my pinion. Damn... expensive but not devistating. Ordered parts, got parts. towed to shop, opened diff cover to find much more carnage..... Spider gears exploded, the pin that they ride on was broken in half. So where the problem lies is with the adjusters. when the spider gears exploded the carrier expanded and shoved the adjuster into the axle tube. I was wondering if anyone has expirienced this and if they had if the axle housing is shot and I need to start over from scratch?
