did you change the wheels too?

I can't figure out why it would do it going forward, -unless!!

Hey did you check your lug nuts?

I went to a shop that for got to tighten them, and going around a corner the thing wheel would slap against the hub.

Took me forever to figure out what was happening.

Check your lug nuts immediately!!!

the rear axle completely exploded. they said that when they took apart the rear end, bits of metal came pouring out, and that it was shattered, and the banging and knocking was the grinding and popping of the metal in the axle.

Any idea how this happened?

No idea what would cause that....short of extreme wear and tear. Could it be a defect somewhere in one of the gears?

I hope my car won't have the same fate

yeah, but the proper way to do a burnout in an auto, is to floor it with the brakes on.

You won't have the tranny hitting the concrete taht way . ..

Well, I made an appointment for tomorrow at my local Ford Dealership.

The guy whom I talked to said it sounded like the synchro's were messed up or something...but he didn't think it would be related to the engine almost stalling sometimes while coming to a stop.

So they're going to check out everything and let me know what's up tomorrow

By the way...what exactly do the synchro's do?

they synchronize the gears.

Are they controlled by the computer, or manually adjusted by tearing the tranny apart?
Id just like to get an idea on how much this would cost to fix. The guy didn't elaborate very much - just told me how much it would cost for a diagnostic.

The computer doesn't control any shifting, except in automatics, it's a mechanical process, but replacing the synchros don't usually require tearing the entire transmission apart.
