"I did in fact... I was only charged 200 for front and rear install, plus lockers."
Sorry to say this in retrospect - you got what you paid for...when the going rate for install labor, gears and master install kit is running around 700 to 1000 per axle...a red flag should have gone up. Something has to give, or as they say, "When it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."
Truly sorry you have to go through this, but please let others use this as a learning tool and not as a bash to you. The photos show the picture of what can happen with a bad install because the gears are probably not the cause of this, bad preload, reuse of crush sleeve, improper torque or improper shimming might be, I am not a qualified forensic mechanic...hope all goes well and you get back on the trail again soon! Keep us posted...

I do not consider myself a smartass. I point out the obvious, search for the truth, and speak fluent sarcasm. I am, by experience, an accomplished curmudgeon.
