You've heard of them before SoCal?
Naw, the guy said that when he opened it up, the tabs and munched stuff fell out. So even if they opened it up, they would have seen those pieces sitting in the bottom of the differential.
Regardless, if I woulda drove it like that, it would have been BAD news. Then again, If I would have sent them the gears like I was originally was gonna do, they would have found this problem long before and fixed it, Or I woulda hoped.
Now my rear has new gears and new clutch packs. I haven't picked it up yet tho. I hope its nice and burley when I get it.
I did finally get MPS to agree to refunding me 100$. This made the rear end 400$ plus shipping. They wanted to send me axels too, tho they were in good enough shape to actually use.
The other thing they asked me about, so there is C clips to hold the axels in, inside the differential right? Well...they pulled three of them out when there should have only been two. Quite odd I must say.
But as you said, if they just unbuttoned it and looked in, then put it all back together, it might be like that.
