Hello, back in February 2021 I did a pull one night and the wheels hopped and I snapped both axles at the wheel bearings. Finally get it fixed a month later and the guy I had pop the axles on, I thought they were really used axles, i.e. lots of rust on them around the hubs. Ever since he fixed them my back end felt sticky like something wasn't right. About a month later, I left a red light under normal speed and I didn't even hear a pop..my motor just revved up. Wouldn't move at all.. I get it towed home and the right axle pulled apart at the boot coming out of the differential. :unsure: so I blame it on his used rusted axles and send them back to him. I order 2 brand new trakmotive axles (CH8237 & CH8238) pop those in myself and meanwhile still feeling the stickiness in the rear, then a few weeks later my handling gets worse, right turns and cornering was fine but anytime I cornered or turned left at speeds over 30.. the back end felt like I was sliding on ice. Then a few more weeks later I hear grinding so I limp it to home 25miles away @35mph. NOWWW I check it and the right axle is busted again at the diff..this time on the silver hub part and not the cv boot..looks like it pulled apart again.. huge question for everybody..WHAT IS GOING ON????? DIFFERENTIAL BUSHINGS? BAD DIFFERENTIAL? BENT REAR END FROM THE FIRST BREAK? HELP PLEASE. OFFERING VENMO FOR ANY CORRECT ANSWERS!!!馃挵 I do not and actually couldn't make it top a shop right now unless I tow it again, 2021 has not been good to my Charger. Thanks in advance!!!

How many miles on your Charger? I'd be looking at worn/loose suspension parts/mounts.

If you're lowered, it actually extends the joints, changing the angles and causing them to not seat as well. Stock shafts don't loke it very much and they have been known to be problematic on lowered cars.

Yessir lol only cause I haven't had many problems. I've replaced the differential carrier bushings which the passenger one was shot, I replaced all control arm bushings and the shocks. Only thing that I didn't replace eere5the rear carrier bushings. 3 axles gone in a year and the 4th one just now after all the replacements. I didn't think carrier bushings would flex that much to break but thats literally the only bushings left. Unless the trakmotive axles ate junk? Ch-8237

I've had it lowered since I had it and only started having problems from when the first time both axles broke from wheel hop. Then the right reat differential bushing was shot which I found months later. But all bushings and shocks were replaced in the rear except yhe rear carrier bushings. o_Oo_Oo_O its driving me nuts with it breaking all the time
