As i stated before i heard a bang and saw pieces flying behind me. I followed the trans fluidstains downthe road and founda few little pieces herre and there. I found a nice chunk of gear. I am going to post some pics and you guys can tell me what you think it is. Its half of a circle about the size of a half dollar.

TJ, Thats the spider gear... Or part of one anyhow..

You most definitely sheered off the Diff pin and the diff pin at the Diff cover until it finally broke..

You 100% have a totally fragged Diff

so would that have anything to do with why the car felt sluggish off the line sometimes? Maybe it was slipping off the line or something?

Those spider gears may have been binding up.. The Pin was being held in place by the Diff cover until it chewed through ...
