1800 Final Drive-Shaft Spine

Post by IBArider »

My 1500 Final Drive-Shaft Spine stripped out at 155,000 miles and others have had same at about that mileage. I have not read of reports as I have on the 1500 of the 1800 and do not know if it just has not be reported or if the 1800 Final Drive-Shaft Spine is lasting longer. Does anyone have any information on the reliability of the Final Drive Unit of the 1800? Thanks

Over 200,000 miles on mine and the only issue was a blown seal at about 146,000 miles whick was replaced under warranty.
