Never had that problem with my D44a or 35c. That trac lok carrier is trash now. Don't let them replace it with an open carrier since the 5.9 came with a trac lok.
Like said above, to change the wheel and carrier bearings you have to take the pin out to remove the C- clips first. Then you can slide the axles out and remove the carrier.
How common is it for these particular bolts to break?
It never happens,
it happens sometimes,
it happens sometimes but not often,
it rarely ever happens.
Im just looking for opinions.
This is the first time I was there, and I have had other issues with this shop while my Jeep was there, for example.
New Parking Brake Shoes & cables installed, but didnt replace with new or free uo the two pivot points (see photo) so the parking brake shoes will work, both sides were still frozen and the parking brake didnt work and one of the cast steel parking brake cable mounting points on the axle was broken off.
Left Front wheel almost fell off on my way home. Two lug nuts were tight(155 & 115 ft lbs), right next to each other. The other three were loose, one was only on by 1 or 2 threads and the other two could be turned with my fingers.
I didnt request an oil change. They changed my oil anyway & threw out Mobil 1 that had lots of miles left. They put in basic 5w30 (not recommended in the 5.9 over 60 degrees F) and put on a new filter. The filter was leaking bad enough to cause smoking from oil on the exhaust pipe on my way home.
Needless to say, I am not going back there- EVER!
The issue for me is damage that was done while my Jeep was there, easily over $1000 worth not counting what I listed above.
BTW, that is what the parts looked like when I removed them. They were properly cleaned, painted and then lubed before installation. Would any one on this forum install a part that looked like that and was seized and didnt work properly????? I couldnt... I didnt.
