Tha fact that you TRIED quite often is the reason you did that. At least in part. Some may have been the quality of the rebuild, but the rest was you loading one side of the diff.

10 bucks says the rebuild didn't include the diff, too. Another 10 bucks says they don't inspect the rest of the trans, and only replace the diff and housing.

I've been happy with my 4T65E. 168,000 miles and have never done ANYTHING to it. The shifts are getting mushy....especially between first and second. I'm hoping I can get another 5,000 out of it before a rebuild.

That looks like the diff IMO..

Here'* an Intense Diff for comparison. Yours wont have the plates/springs in the middle.

There'* no reason you should be blowing diffs unless you're trying to do burnouts in a turn.

You don't have a 4T65. The 97 non */C models where the last year for the 4T60 which are known for blowing diffs.

I think you're getting railroaded - The CV shaft has no gears in it and thats the only 'Axle' you have since you said they rebuilt the differential. Whats their warranty on it?
