Well the funny thing is I just had them checked by a different nexus shop when I rebuilt my transmission, I asked if they could take a look back there because the were howling when I was on the freeway and he looked at them and didn't see anything out of the ordinary so Idk?

I'm sure they just opened it up and looked for worn teeth and metal flecks in the oil. They didn't pull it apart and check for proper instalation.

Shop fools you once, shame on them. Shop fools you twice, shame on you. Time for a new installer

If you had them double checked. They needed to check wear pattern with gear mesh coumpound and check the backlash. An early whine may not show any signs of wear yet.

Well the first time the gears were in for almost a year and I think my diff. broke which caused the gear to break if it was a crappy install I would have noticed it right away not a year later, and so its possible this one set was a bad set so it may in fact just be bad luck, so if you mess up a install it would be noticeable once I left the shop and I like to race my car so I would have noticed something was wrong awhile ago but ill just see what the story is today.

Its definitely poor gear instalation. No doubt about it. Rear gear sets don't break in short time spans. Take it to a different shop or fork out the money to have Ford do it.

Poor installation plus bad or insufficient amount of fluid. You said something about a long road trip?

I say installation because Ford has been using these 8.8's for decades and ppl have been modding said rears and cars for decades. I've never herd of two bad gear sets, actually I don't know I've ever herd of any FRP gear sets. Every time I see or hear of any issues with FRP gear sets the install has always been the cause, always.

At this point the best thing you can do is have another shop do the install and send your shop the bill. Honestly are you willing to go through this a third time? Save face with you friends that run your shop now before they ruin a third set of perfectly good gears

Well thanks for all the help I'm glad we did the correct course of troubleshooting and found the cause was the day my wife(mustang) met my girlfriend(Audi) LOL

Well as it turns out I keep breaking the bolts from the master bearing kit which cause the gear to move and grind, so not the gears or the installation just faulty bolts breaking and causing this problem might need to get ARP bolts or something?

Faulty bolts? There must have been some cause of breakage, are you installing those bolts or is the shop?

The shop installed the bolts, but the cause of breakage is I'm making 500hp and breaking these things and yes I'm aware guys are making more power then me and haven't broke anything but I might just suck at driving a manual or something and jerk the car so violently to break them?

Brother, sounds to me like you may be in denial that something else is going on, of your refuse to believe it, or at the very least question what's happening, then that's your choice

lol. arp bolts and a new shop should do the trick.

my guess as to why the bolts were breaking was them not being properly torqued to spec.

hmmm. maybe if a ford dealer did it, then i would think you can have warranty work done anywhere. but not positive on the aftermarket stuff.

the best way is to check your local dealers. then check the local dealers of the area you are looking for. just to have a good idea of the closet dealer in the new area our moving to that will do the warranty work.

Can I ask why? It seems the trend is to go the other way around.
