this is the second time, same rear end. Car weight 3440lbs-9"ford, 28 spline. Cap or cover, for carrier bearing (looks like a main cap-holds all in place- like U strap) don't know what it's called- but keeps breaking into-dead center, Anyone have a clue what causes this?

Yes me too!!! It has happened twice. I just figured the backlash wasn't set properly.

Wrong carrier bearings maybe? There's a couple different sizes.

sounds like theres some movement maybe a surface out of round possibly a bent tube are you sure the torque is right and the threadsare good so it stays torqued
