Rear axle internals exploded!!!! Question???
Hey so I drove 5 hours from home to fix an aircraft for the company I work for on Thursday last week. Right when I got there my rear axle internals exploded(30 miles out), its a complete remove and replace at this point(internals that is). So a rented a car to come back.
My company was nice enough for me to fly co-pilot to the location of my broke down truck to fix and drive it back......
I cant fix it out there of course....so heres my question!
Can I unhook the rear driveshaft, put it in four wheel drive, lock the hubs, and ''limp'' it home? When theres no torque to my rear axle, it seemed to be noise free and theres no vibration. So if I put it in 4x4 without a rear driveshaft would I be ok to drive slowly home?
I need a answer ASAP, I'm flying out tomorrow(05/22/12)!!!
ASAP ASAP ASAP, Thanks you guys!!
