Re: Front diff mounts? Axle movement...
Removed the skid; the mount on the passenger side is totally destroyed. When you jack up the pumpkin, you can watch a lot of up and down movement on that mount. The front one seems good, not sure about the "hidden" mount, but when you jack it, all the movement seems concentrated on the passenger side, ie: it lifts and twists on that side. There are no bolts sheared, and the axle drops until to comes to rest on the upper inside section of the faulty mount. There is no damage on the inside of the skid, so it hasn't been "beating" off the plate.
With the weight off the damaged mount, I shoved a piece of rubber in the open gap, just to see if it would help until I can get it replaced. Sure is quiet now when Shifting from P to R or D or vice versa.
