It's an 8.8. It used to be a play car but it's a daily car now, I like to drive it hard, it's a Cobra. But I think you mis-understood the question. Can you think of any reason why the pinion bearings keep failing on this car? I just picked it up this morning from the repair shop and for the second time discussed with the mechanic how in the devil the pinion front and rear bearings end up being totally galled after 4000 miles in 11 months. I trust the mechanic, Fords are his speciality, I trust him when he says everything is in spec. This time all the bearings were replaced, including the ring gear. Could the machining on the housing been bad and the relationship? Since there aren't any other vibrations, the driveshaft hasn't been suspect. I could see how a problem there might aggrevate the issue, but. Ya' think?
