I just noticed a leak and then found a crack in my Aluminium housing cover. Pulled the cover and found 2 ring rear bolts. This rear end was set up by a professional ? with all brand new Eaton posi and gears. Less than 2000 miles on it. Why should this happen and what should I do? So far I do not see any gear damage and only one of the bolts is chewed up badly. What is the torque setting for the ring gear bolts? Just got back and found a 3rd ring bolt half way out. Also other bolts can be loosened with about 15 ft/pounds of torque. According to specs they should be 60#. Bolts also have a lock washer on them. Not sure if you supposed to have a lock washer on these bolts.
