help with my GF 2008 Chevy Duramax Diesel rear end

Header says it all, my Girl Friends truck twisted up a passenger side REAR axle tube, it's forward a few degrees.

2008 Chevy 3500HD Duramax Diesel (2 wheel drive) with Alison Transmission, 4 Door Dually 4 wheel discs.
It has a flat bed on it, she uses for a 36' Fifth wheel trailer.

Seems to be impossible to get help for her, she's not well versed on Technical or terminology to get what she needs.
I am only home on the weekends right now, working out of town..

I am pulling it apart today to see just how bad it is.


We really need this back on the road ASAP
(I put this in another section but not sure it will get viewed like here maybe, THANKS!)

You should be able to find an axle to just drop in for pretty cheap. The dual wheel axles do not go for much. Hell I have 2 out here in the yard. if you were closer I would say come grab one but you should be able to get one locally much cheaper than the gas to run out here.

Your limited slip differential sucks.
