Moser 9" problem
So a few months ago I got a 9" installed in my TA when the stock 10 bolt shelled out on me. Everything was go well I thought... It had some gear whine, most everyone I talked to told me that it was normal depending on the gears, materials they were made from and that they should be ok if you can only hear the whine while decellerating. I was on my way home one night and there were deer in the road so I slammed on the brakes and stopped short of the deer and ever since then I had a slight vibration in the car, or atleast thats when I first noticed it. I thought that I just warped a rotor or had a brake dragging, mabey a flat spot on a tire cause of how hard I had to stop. It steadily got worse. I checked everything out, had the tires balanced and rotated and still this vibration....even changed the front rotor and still this vibration... It just got worse and worse until I could feel it feeding back though the accelerator and I could feel it on the steering wheel. I took it into the dealership and had it tore apart and they tell me that my 3rd member is bad, and that it wasnt set up correctly. Now they could put it back togeather and it would be better than it was but it wouldnt be perfect because of the wear on it. They tell me the only way to correct it now is to buy new ring and pinion for it. I called the guy at the shop that I had ordered it and installed it and he tells me that the company doesnt carry a warrenty but if it was not assebled correctly shouldnt it be covered by something? Oh yeah it only had about 1,500 miles on it too, and never even drove it really hard, no burn outs or anything. So what should I do?

I thought that it came totally assembled and was just a bolt in replacement.

it wasn't that seems strange to me, so you had a seperate shop other than the one you bought it from put it together and install it.....humm....did you have a limited-slip, you said the noise started coming from the gears maybe the was something either wrong with the locker you used or there was no addit. used with the limited slip, just thoughts

I had a speed shop order it and install it. But when something on it goes wrong I usually take it to the dealership, its about 30 miles closer. It has detroit tru track in it also.

A little gear whine is normal. Sounds like it was working correctly before. I'd just have the shop tear it down and install a new rebuild kit. I doubt the ring and pinion was damaged, just inspect it for damage when its out.
