Right rear axle bolts sheared... No power to rear end?
Hey guys, so about a week ago I was driving from Oklahoma to Virginia. Well as the title states, I lost power to my rear end. The mechanic called today and said that the right rear axle bolts had been sheared? Any idea of what may ha e caused this? Truck has 113k, 8" lift on 38's. I know there is a lot of stress on the axles constantly, so I'm assuming the bolts eventually just kinda give into the constant pressure?
Also can someone help explain how this would case full lose of power to the rear wheels? Ejuwmacate me!
Thanks in advance!
