Well, I got the mo back Sat 6/5/4 @ 12:20 p.m. Had an opportunity to see underneath the car while service clerk was doing a last min. ck. for leaking @ and around tranny and transfercase. Checked good and the same goes for mechanics test drive... Well haven’t had a chance to drive car all of that day but today Sun.6/6/4 I did. I drove to Fast-Food Place and when leaving the drive-through window and making a sharp left turn to exit...Kurplunk goes the rear differential spiting out Spider gear, oil and aluminum shrapnel. Notice I didn’t say which fast food place because there is a mess of gear lube in there parking lot. Don't want to be held responsible for the mess. After picking up the pieces and finishing my cussing with hazard lights on and making sure awd lock button was off, I crawled the car out of there and to home. That Is It; I'M Done With This Car! I have a theory as to how this could have happened. Way back when all this started with the front transfercase failing (Busted Ring Gear). The car was in motion and with that gear clogging and jamming. It absorbed more stress and passed stress though drive shaft connected to rear differential. This in effect could have caused a light fracture within rear differential components that just now surface as failure today during a tight turn that work out the spider gears. If this theory is correct, then it a viscous cycle…Now the Brand New front transfer case was subjected to the same stress and torture.
