Turbovsix will become famous soon enough

I just had mine in - rear pinion seal was leaking slightly, so I took it in for that and a replacement of the passenger side mirror (turning brown from the heating element!). Thank God I have the Max Care lifetime warranty.

Anyway, I was under the truck talking with the mechanic and he said that they lost a driveshaft on a dealer demo back when the 2010's were out. He had also seen a few cases on 2009's and 10's.

He checked everything, replaced the seal, etc, -

I am wondering - is it the rear that's failing which is causing the pinion nut to back off or is it the other way around?

This thread concerns me -
