1.. all 02-2005 (maybe 2006) 9.25" lsds are affected. 2.. the retaining clips fail. 3.. after enough wear on the housing the clips can come loose, which at a high rate of speed could get lodged in the ring and pinion and cause the rear end to lock up. And at 75 mph having the rear tires lock up surely spell out injury or death. 4.. that even when the problem is found and repaired under warranty the parts are replaced with the same junk as before.
