    Blown drive shaft, torque arm and left rear wheel locking up

    Sorry for this being my first post, I'll introduce myself later in the intro section. Today after hitting a wide open stretch of road I experienced a loud pop followed by a clunking noise, sounds like a bunch of loose parts clunking around, noticed it going over bumps as well. So I nurse the car home and find and get the car up on jack stands.

    Find a broken torque arm, not sure how it was even still attached how bad it was shredded, bent drive shaft and my left rear wheel is locked up. That's the only part I don't understand. I plan to get a steel ds and a UMI or BMR torque arm.

    But for the L/R wheel being locked up anyone have a clue???? Is my limited slip toast??? I hope not : ( Right rear wheel spins freely in the air just not the left rear. Any ideas what this could be???

    Probably broke the rear end. Pull the cover off and take a look inside.

    Good luck getting back on the road. Definetly invest in the TA relocation bracket when you get a TA.
