    Saturday - finally been able to take my bird over to the base and used their 4 post lift to get the car up in the air to check the pinon angle and replace the diff pinon seal.

    Ever since Feb the last time I was at the track and had a major issue with my drive line, it has had a severe vibration above 65mph.

    Backstory - My issue at the track was the torque arm mount that had been modified for the 8.8 long time ago worked great while under street tires on the road and the track....until I ran with slicks. My last lunch (4k rpm) the car launch hard for about 10 ft but then the rear unloaded on me and felt like I was floating so I let off. I found other issues that killed my track day so took it home. Drive home was harsh, couldn't get up to speed had to stay around 55. Got it home and up on stands. Found my torque arm mount had Bent it a good 2". So with some love from a BFH and a lot of cussing I clearance the tunnel wall to make room for the unmodified torque arm mount to get installed. I then did a quick check to see if my pinon angle had changed and thought I was good.

    Fast forward to Sat - It's been several months and I had my hand in a cast twice now and had surgery since Feb so it hasn't had much road time. I knew the pinon seal was leaking (it's an 8.8 ) so while I was there, I checked it again this time while the suspension was fully loaded. Turns out I was about 3* off. Made my adjustments. Test drive felt great. Did some 0-80 pulls no issues. Then later on when the roads were cleared I did several 55-110 pulls and again zero vibrations. Finally fixed...... Been driving me nuts for a while, got to the point I didn't want to drive it.



    And now that the cast is off and car is fixed again.....it fwaking has rained every day since last Thursday. No rain for 3 months while I was in cast, but 3 days out of it here comes the damn monsoon season. weather.
