I have an 05 X with a D35 rear axle. My Jeep has always drifted towards the left. Recently I got a new set of Coopers to replace my GSA's (which cured the death wobble) and had an alignment done at Firestone. Anywho, Firestone said that my rear axle is off 0.56 degrees on the right rear tire. They gave me 3 options on why... (1) I hit something when wheeling and bent the axle tube. (2) My 2"BB caused the problem when it was installed. (3) It was wrong from the facory. Now, I don't wheel the Jeep super hard and don't remember banging the axle, and I also don't see how the BB could have caused this, which leaves option 3. Has anyone else out there had this problem? Jeep won't cover it beacuse they say I caused it. If it is a bent axle tube, how hard is it to have it fixed and how much should I be looking to spend? If it makes a difference, when I replaced my original tires, the right rear wore much more quickly than the rest. It was almost bald at 13K miles. Any input would be appreciated. Thanx in advance guys.
The stealership also told me since I dented the transfer case skid (which is a structural piece) that my 7/100 powertrain warrenty is mostlikely void. They say they won't cover it beacsue I can't prove it was like that from the factory. They are saying that I damaged the axle tube.

I should have been more specific... The toe on the right rear tire is off by .56 degrees. I believe that is more than the allowance for both rear tires combined.
is it financed through chrysler credit?? if it is call them and demand warranty issues be resolved or tell them you will be going through arbitration. vehicle leans are subject to arbitration. they dont wanna deal with a hassle like this and will get a dealer ot fix it cheap or free. if its financed through your own bank you kinda out of luck. and yes you did bend your dana 35, its easy to do! dont feel bad many others have done this.
