just had this AGAIN happen to my '02 Dakota for the second time. First time the splines wore off the shaft was at 65k, but was covered under power train warranty. This time at 110k it's on me. Is this just poor design?? Anything that can be done to prevent this, rather than replacing every 60k miles??
Also, according to Dodge you are NOT supposed to put a metal C clip on the outer side of the stub shaft, only the inner that connects into the transfer case but NOT the axle side. Is this correct??
Thanks in advance!
