I am definitely interested in a picture of what it looks like.

Did you do anything severe to get it to happen/start? or did it just creep on, or just BAM...there it was?

Ok so kinda exaggerated about the blowing up part. Though when I think of people doing it on the road I can picture a person driving on the highway when a little rain starts to fall. Thinking it would be a great idea to turn on 4wd to keep from spinning.

Kevbz - For the most part it is the same. Though the d44's should come with a LSD and he will have a bunch of friction clutches in there as well. You can tell by the shape of the carrier. If it necks down from the R&P it is open, if its the same width all the way across then it is an LSD carrier. Here is a pic of my old one that is an LSD. Also if the R&P are messed up then now is a good time to regear to a new ratio. But since you could drive on it(and didn't complain with noise driving straight) and it was locking your wheels together only while turning all my money is on the spider gears.



Also since I just love exploded drawings, here is a d44's parts. Follow the link to get the part names and numbers. If all you need are the spider gears and clutch plates it's ~300 in parts and a competent shop could do it in 2 hours or less. Hopefully only a $500 fix. Or do it yourself and save and learn.

Hey Kevbz,

Thanks very much for taking the time (great pictorial) and yah, you nailed it Ring and Pinion appear to be fine (I hope) what's in between is what's kluged up, mushroomed and tooth and a half through the grinder.

Thanks again to all for your help... great group you have here.

Sorry no pictures (I should have)... given my schedule and skill level thought I'd leave this one to the pros. For the probem: it started with creak ing and progressively got worse over about six weeks or so.
