Question Input Please

I just had my transmission rebuilt and installed about 10 months ago. now the problem

I was driving down the highway doing about 55mph, then boom! it felt and sounded like i flew over a speed bump. truck coasted off to the side of the highway. i tried 1 2 and Drive and Reverse and none of them worked so i opened the door and put it in drive and looked underneath and the drive shaft was not spinning. called the tow truck and had it towed to the shop that did the trans. rebuild. they called me a few days later and said the gears in the rear end were torn up, but there was still an issue with the trans. i went down there and looked at the rear end and sure enough the gears were in pieces. so they are going to pull the trans. and do some further digging. this rear end was just recently installed and i have not had any leaks or noises or any hint of a problem with it.

my hypothesis, when the transmission locked up the momentum of the truck and tires caused the gears in the rear end to explode. so shouldn't the shop cover that under warranty of the transmission since it was what caused the rear end to break? I have all the parts to rebuild the rear end minus the seals and bearings, so they would really be just covering the labor. I think this is a fair deal, no? please let me know what you think and maybe some other ideas as to how the rear end blew up coincidentally the same time the transmission did.
EDIT: The spider gears in the limited slip let loos and jammed between the ring gear and pinion gear... just my luck


sorry for the huge post.

that sucks man. that weird about your rear end. what exactly is broken? do you has LDS or posi? do you do any burnouts? if you do a one wheel burn out it really does a number on those gears.

The smaller gear was broken and i didn't see the others, its just what the guy under my truck handed me while i was standing in the shop. I believe it is limited slip. if you mean breakstands, No i do not, but the truck will spin the tires a little from a stop (non boosted just punch it from a stop) and chirp them in second gear when the skinny pedal is to the floor. but i dont go around town racing my truck, it is my daily and my lively hood.

I was driving down the highway! don't think that would "shock load" anything, the gear did not look discolored at all, the pieces looked to be in great shape actually... aside from being pieces.

I would like to think that i am on a good basis with this shop, I send people to them all the time and support them. so i am hoping they will work with me on this and not tell me to off.
