Bad bearing, so let's replace the axle

I was at the dealer last week for some simple maintenance. I asked them to check out a slight grinding noise coming from the right rear of the truck. The service guy came out to me, and said the bearing was bad. He said they were a "mutha" to replace, so he said he'd call Nissan to replace the whole axle. I was shocked. He said it must have been a factory defect, and it's covered under warranty.

The truck goes in the shop tomorrow to have the work done - a day before I put my 2.5" lift in! I hope they don't run into any issues!

better it was caught before the lift goes on, otherwise they may not have covered it!

sounds like to me that either that dealer shop doesn't have a good drivetrain and gear guy or that nissan wants all their drivetrain failures back to figure out what to do with them.

Looking at the service manual, those brearings look to be a real PITA to change!

Well, the dealership replaced the axle today. So far, so good. I'll get a closer look at it tomorrow when we do the lift.

Yeah, talk about a "bump" from the past.

So all the way back in '07 the stealerships were still whack!

After the dealer replaced the axle, I haven't had the noise since. The truck is running fine.
