    lol.

    It always amazes me what people will say in the relative anonymity of the internet, perhaps I was criticizing the wrong moderator. Such a childish and irresponsible retort only reinforces rumors I've heard that this forum is strong on BS and weak on useful information. You give yourself and your illustrious moderatorís way too much credit and I hope your arm heals quickly. The colorful language was a good touch as well although not entirely appropriate on a public forum.

    Since I seem to have done it again, either ban me or don't ban me. As you so eloquently stated (corrected for improper punctuation), "Either way, I really don't give a shit".

    BTW, nice car. Did you do any of the work yourself?

    I think he is just jealous of Sarge's GTO, because it is a bad ass car and not a POS. With a car like that I would not care who built it because if you have the money and can pay others to do so, why not. Also as long as he have the knowledge ( I am sure he does), who cares what you think!

    It must be pretty bad to have your daddy come on here and take up for you. I didn't realize that everyone was so mean on here, I guess that we should be ashamed.

    I bet his rear has lasted more than 6 months and 348 miles Mr. Rearend specialist. Or was that 4 years, 6 months, and 348 miles? Could I see another pic of those rusted ass bolts again?

    Yes....quite alot of it I did myself. The machining and whatnot was done by Greg Spreen....Allen Nelson far and away did the lions share of it....but I can twist a wrench with the best of em. But I run multiple companies during the day. Technology/Insurance mainly. Hopefully you don't install rear ends for a living. Your kid seems to be a stand up guy....must get that from his mother.

    I had been driving for 350 miles straight for a few hours (cruise set at 75) and I was 150 miles from home. I called the guy and he said he installed a new Ring and Pinion Gear Set (with 4.10s) when he bought the car 6 months ago (he had the same thing happen to him).

    What would cause a car to have the same general problem two times within a year? It's not like I was beating on the car, it was cruising...is this common for F-bodies or did I just get the bad luck of it happening while I was a long way from home?

    I'm driving my Suburban up there to to tow it home on Sunday. My friend found a replacement rear end housing, diff and gearing out of a 99 T/A and we're going to install it Sunday Afternoon. And I wanted to know whether I should get rid of the car now before anything else happens?

    Thanks for any and all help/suggestions/input.

    Edit: I'll post pics of it the Rear End when I get back home on Sunday. It looked like it had a hole in the housing cover, but maybe it was a dirt spot...it was dark.

    F-bodies just break a lot. Mine never saw any rough usage and the wheel bearings went out at 75K miles. Then again at 80K miles. The rear end looked great at 75K miles, but blew up in the driveway at 80K miles (I was backing up and had the clutch 1/3 out at 800rpm when the pinion bearing spun on me) (along with the TO bearing going bad then too). GM really skimped on this model.

    Just my opinion after owning one for a year and hating 9 of those months. I have gotten over 30K miles on 4 used BFG KDW's, thats how easy I drive this thing. Non-wear items break a lot, its just cheap parts. The 10-bolt being one of the cheapest. Upgrade as you go I guess.

    ^ Then again some people go 150,000 miles with no issues (although prolly alot less then those that dont). I do agree the rear is pretty shitty amonst other things but the bottom line is-its a machine and machines break.
