Hello George Marsh,

The oil looking like metal flakes? Not a good thing. You may have a bearing gone!, NOT GOING bad. Sounds like the pinion lost its preload, and it is slopping back and forth. Under load it stays in and takes up the slack. Second opinion is warranted!, mine is just a guess!

Dealer had it for 2 weeks. Just got it back today. Only hear vibrations after running full speed, getting off the gas, and it slows down to about 3 mph. They shimmed it and said they had it tighter and within specs. It is still under warantee until the end of the year. Going to wait and see if it gets better. I think there is some gear wear because it wasn't put together right the first time. Will keep an eye and ear on it.

Hello George Marsh,

Shimming took care of your first and only problem.
Now you have a drive line issue. My guess is they did not clock the drive axle correctly. The vibration will only happen at certain R.P.M.'s.
Another guess on my part,
