I've seen CVs grenade like that... but I've never seen a cracked steering knuckle or bent shock like that.

That must have taken a hell of a beating to crack that knuckle... those suckers are cast iron and HEAVY!

Its all fixed now. The sad part is i dont even know what happend. I bout it that way. I knew it needed some tranny work and the rear end needed rebuild. So i got it for 1/3 of blue book in fair condition. The first time I put it in 4wd coming up a hill is when the axle blew on me but it did not seems like it was anything more than an axle. I took the axle out not even an hour after that and saw the crack in the steering knuckle and saw that inside the crack there was rust so someone had fun not me :(

Well, I don't think Doc's spindle went, and I believe the CV just pulled apart from excessive angle with power applied (if I remember what he told me correctly).

Still, not fun.

Ouch! What a way to ruin a perfectly good axle. That torsen will handle whatever you throw at it.
