So my rear axle was leaking from the diff cover so i decided that i might as well change the cover itself. i bought the diff cover from mac. its made of aluminum. so i go to install it and i did everything correctly. i know that with aluminum u have to torque it correctly or else u will damage it. i slowly tightened all the bolts in a criss cross pattern. then i go to do the final torque on the bolts and twang. the cover cracked. FUKC!!! yeah i wasnt to thrilled. i just spent $150 for it plus Royal Purple gear oil. i blamed the torque wrench. i tried to jb weld untill i got a new one but it didnt work. so now my truck is in the street till i get the new cover. it doesnt leak unless i drive it. so i ordered the TRS Fab cover in hopes that it wont crack. what do u guys think? crappy cover, bad wrench or bad mechanic (me)? arrrrrrg!!!!!
