If the theory is correct, it would dictate that a RWD would not have the same problem. I can really see this being it considering how our drive axles operate.

So the question is this:

Because the drive axles are already at an angle, given the 'stock' ride height, were the trans internals optimized for this? I doubt it'* possible. Given that the internals just inside the CV joints rotate axially, you can't preload or set the internals to be biased for any particular angle.

Any disruption of this setup COULD be detrimental, and would certainly be abnormal at the least.

So the NEXT question is:

What'* your ride height in comparison to the 2 members we have here that have lowered their suspensions?

I always thought the CV was in charge of that but that idea almost makes sense.

It also could just have been a defective trans....but blowin it with a L27 ...

It stands true on atv'*, if you raise too high you blow axles...So I could see that the tranny might not be designed and maybe the ride height was beyond the ability of the CV to compensate.

The two that lowered, we'd need to try and understand the angles put on the CV'* in the lowering or raising. I'd be lowering doesn't have the same angle on the cv and therefore doesn't cause the problem.

honestly i doubt the air ride has anything to do with the tranny going i have a friend with a park avenue with the same air ride set-up he has had no problems and has had it installed for 3 years i did a few burn outs since i had put it in so that could be the cause
