2000RAM is on a distinguished road
Default Bent Pinion??

I was driving my truck and all of a sudden a loud vibration and bang boom skid hop skip jump... Pinion nut came off and driveshaft went flappin around. Pinion fell back into the housing therefor locking up the rear. Driveshaft was stuck in the Tcase. I took everything apart and the ring and pinion seemed ok so I replaced both pinion bearings and seal. CRUSH SPACER TOO. Reassembled the diff and got the backlash to .008. but when setting the backlash there was a point where the pinion would spin a 1/4-1/2 turn and get bound up, spin it the other way and it would get hung up in a different spot. Got the backlash to .008. Get the truck back together and take it down the road and hear a knocking. Put the truck up on jackstands and put it in gear and listened and felt and where the pinion comes out of the housing there is a vibration/ knocking that you can feel and hear. ALL NEW BEARINGS ON PINION. Crush spacer crushed, about 20 in lbs of rotational torque. Do I have a bent pinion? Do I have a bent flange from when the driveshaft went slapping around everywhere. And why does my driveshaft go into my Tcase so hard? PLEASE HELP!!!

How much of the tcase did you inspect? That thing would have taken on a very large moment of inertia.

What exactly do you mean by "driveshaft go into my Tcase so hard"? Meaning it takes alot of effort to insert it?


As for the rear, how did the spider gears appear? Do you have a LSD? Do the axle shafts spin freely when turning them by themselves?

You using the same pinion?

Are you using the same driveshaft? I would expect the driveshaft got dinged enough to need a rebalance. Really need to rule that out in case it's contributing to the vibe/knocking you feel/hear.
