Driving home today
 
Driving home today i pull into my neighborhood and hear a snap. And coast to a stop. Well i snapped a bolt that holds my drive shaft to the rear axle and had to go the rest of the way home with FWD. The drive shaft fell out. It shouldn't be to bad of a fix the only problem i for see is the bolt snapped in there so i might go get a extractor and remove it. :doh:

And there has been a nasty noise coming from my front axle like grinding and scraping mostly when i back up and turn no clue what that is yet. It's been doing it for a week or so it started about 2 weeks after i installed my Aussie locker. No clue what it is. Any advice? I'm gonna be taking her apart on Saturday if T.S. Fay doesn't mess up plans.

NO Joke...

A repair like that would suck on the freeway or Highway!

You may want to upgrade to a new yoke that takes the u-bolt style straps which if they brake just fall out of the hole vs the threaded kind.
