Cracked Trans Housing AGAIN

So this is lucky number 3 or 4, not sure this time but its got another hair line crack right where the reverse gears are all the way in the end of the trans. Does anyone have any idea what is causing this? Im sick and tired of this.

drive shaft balanced? center support bearing worn out? pinion gear bearings worn out? tranny mount worn out? bad u joints?

if all of that is good depending on how you drive and use your truck could be a factor

I've saw this before its prob te style of driveshaft you have, look under the truck and see what it looks like where it's bolts to the transfer case, if its the same style as ur front is then that's ur problem, we had one in the shop it cracked it from the starter all the way across the bell housing, I had a pic on a thread here ill look it up and see if I can find it.

Its an automatic.

On my first one it was a crack right over the reverse gears in the back and would only pour out when i go in reverse. The mechanic said the driveshaft was bad and sent it out to get redone.

The second time it cracked in the same spot and up by where it bolts to the motor as well. He said it was the yoke to the rear axle this time, it had a good amount of play.

This time it cracked just over the the reverse gears again but not as bad. He said he could not find what the problem was and everything under the truck was nice and tight. Im at a loss. The truck is done and sitting at home ready for me to pick it up. Would like to figure out why the heck this is happening.

Are you in 4x4 a good amount?

I ask because I've seen this 2 times, once in my truck and once on another. Both trucks I found the same problem. A piss poor FRONT driveshaft CV head.

Mine, had good joints, but the center was rusted and gone to crap.

The other had bad joints.

Mine wrecked 3 cases, the other only 2.... Neither damaged another one after that though. After my first one I had a 100% new rear shaft built and that tranny only lasted about 2 months
