Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1995 Ford Mustang V8 Front Wheel Drive Manual 30,000 miles
this car has been driven sparingly over the last 15 years. Last year I took it to a local Ford repair shop known for specializing in blue oval products because of real axle noises. This wasn't the first time, I had problems with the rear end when it was brand new which resulted in the dealer replacing the entire axle assembly. Fast forward to last year and the shop found the pinion bearings to be absolutely trashed. New pinion bearings were installed (used the ring and pinion and carrier bearings) new fluids, etc. Back lash reset. It sounded great though there was a minisule whine. Two weeks ago with a vengence, the noise comes back after only 4k miles from less than 1 year ago. Took it back. Pinion bearings trashed once again. Shop claims it was setup perfectly but is replacing ring and pinion and all bearings with Ford parts. Measurements all look good. Any ideas what's going on?
have the same problem?
