Truck began to vibrate dramatically upon braking. The rotors were warped, the brake pads in the front were too small and was causing the problem, a clunking noise had started coming from the rear as time progressed and returned after repairs. At 30,000 miles the entire rear differentail went out.

Pulled off interstate for gas and heard rear differential making a loud grinding noise. Vehicle was pulling a small utility trailer. Paint has been bubbling off the differential. Dealer found entire differential and rear axle bearings needed to be replaced. Repair was done at dealership, and upon returning home, the rear end failed again, same symptoms. Entire differential and rear axle bearings were replaced a second time.***** dims 11 IVOQ entry posted after 12/12/02 cut-over to artemis******769323.
