Here we go - I find to find the pinion I think it's in my book bag

Yowsa. :eek: :D

If someone installed the R&P gears besides the factory, I'm betting they screwed up setting the gears up properly. Or perhaps the gear lube was low or contaminated from water.

Umm ...that wont buff out. :D

I'm assuming the pinion nut came off and the pinion slipped into the rear diff and your driveshaft fell.
