Hate to say it... but ABOUT TIME!!


Feel sorry for all those who had to get special people involved to get this fixed - or the ones who just got blown off by their dealer because "there is no problem." :soapbox:


Hope this is a fair fix for those who currently have issues as well as those who may have premature failures down the road.

Great info.

Kind of odd that the QSF would mention that this extends into the '09 model when they haven't started production yet.

WOW. 2007-2009

Guess it's not fixed.
Yes, this is the biggest supprise to me. Maybe it is more than just the "input shaft lube " after all.

I guess it's time to call Rockland, and follow Joe's lead. Maybe they can recommend a good clutch, too. Oh and that 9" rear, too.

I wonder how much a driveline like that, good to 800+ Hp, would be?

Let's see what the TSB says before we get our panties all bunched up in a wad.

ORF, What size do you wear ?:)

Nothing in a bunch over here.

Just figuring that a full replacement may be in my future.

No offense meant.

Unfortunately, this TSB means they haven't resolved the issue yet. I hope you don't have to go through the replacement again.

It sounds like a solution will becoming, but all dealers should cease trying to fix the current issue until it is resolved and the TSB is issued.

Just think of all the frustration this issue has caused for people and how upset we will all be when this happens whenever our warranties expire :flame:

I think it's all Grabber's fault.

Seems like we didn't know about this until Grabber's 276 threads on it.


Sometimes ignorance IS bliss. :zzz:
