Honestly, you are making this harder then needed...Again...You need to make sure all the axle shafts bolts and driveshafts are tight first off...You can use swivel, but straight would be better..I'm not sure how we got to tearing the diff apart and replacing the bearings???? Bearings don't click or knock l like that...They have a continuous sound...If you want my help then please stay on the reservation and follow the steps provided... Make sure the driveshaft and axles are tight...that is step one...J
It's life, things break.Damn, that sucks ! Sorry to see. One would expect maybe just hairline metal shavings, but a chunk like that is discouraging, to say the least . And as uncommon as it may be, no clue what can cause jt .. I’m sure many here do quite a bit of “ spirited “ driving , sudden WOT accelerating , even off the line takeoffs , but don’t recall seeing posts with this issue and degree of damage .. Again, bummer to learn this can happen.
