That doesn't happen often. I'd see if the dealership would warranty the issue.
:lol:

They won't warranty it if they are reading this post. :lol:

That is very odd that it snapped on you with your minimal mods and on street tires.

How in the hell do you break your axles by normal driving on the street? Only other person I have heard this happening to is rezin8.

Front left side of my car seems to be clicking fairly loudly when I take off from a stop in first gear. Sounds like it comes from the drivers side right near the front wheel. A slow, pokey start too. It goes CLICK-CLICK-CLICK-CLICK in rapid succession, like a machine gun, but actualy sounds like click-click ad nauseum. Once I'm fully under way, i.e. clutch out and not making a turn(where I hear it the loudest, making a left from a start) the sound stops. And it's certainly not the throwout bearing(the truck transmission sound) Would one suspect the axles in this case as well?

EDIT: If I jacked you my man, I'm terribly sorry. Seemed like a good thread to ask the question on.

It is starting to sound like the axels are a weak link on the SRT-4.
Some have 400+hp and race with the stock axles on the track. I don't think they have had any problems. This is wierd. :eeeek:
