I have brought this up before but, every good running Ford I see breaks its drivetrain at every Pull. Yesterday I was at a pull in Muntua OH and there were 78 Trucks. One of those trucks was the "2013 Diesel Power Challenge Winner." I took a picture of his truck with the banner on his window but very blury.
Either way... He pulled 284 and broke his rear drive shaft at the splined portion of it. Super Clean break to wear it look machined. Then I pull... 279 and bang. Hopped out of the truck and nothing hanging. My left rear wheel was making crazy noise when driving it slowly in the pits. Both trucks broke within the last foot fo the pull. Oh and obviously he didnt spray his nitrous... Pulled the left rear shaft and oh yeah.. its broke. When it broke, it was like a spiral fracture and left alot of debris in the axle tube and the axle is stuck in there. (Super Stuck)
I am hoping that the center of my detroit locker is open and it doesnt have a pin down the center of it so I can hammer it out from the other side.
-Any input on getting out the broken shaft?
-Has anyone ran Yukon Axle shafts? Good or Bad?
-Is it worth spending $560 on shafts or try to find a Dana80 and make it fit or...One of those AAM1150's out of a Dodge or Chevy and change my rear wheels.
Just a side note. This is 4th gear set and now this happens. I have lost faith in this rear end. Just venting
