No, I mean "Shattered gears, busted differential case, vehicle rear wheels lock-up solid so the vehicle skids to a stop and has to be flat-bedded to the shop."By fragile do you mean rust easily?
Common as dirt. They all do that.My U bolts rusted away

Yeah, I've seen axle tubes rusted where the U-bolts go around them. Some get pretty bad. Never seen one that rusted through so the gear lube leaked out, though. Woof. That's NOT good.along with my old rear end and it was seeping gear oil behind the U bolts. The old rear end was replaced with a used one by the dealership put in for me. It's going back soon bc gear oil is seeping behind the passenger side U bolts again so I'm assuming this axle body is FUBARed.
First Guess: the replacement axle came from a Tahoe or other SUV, and that's how you got the good 11.x rear drums.
