I need some advice/input.

I have a 2011 2SS with headers, CAI and tune. I also have the pfadt drag 1 package installed (rear diff bushing, trailing arms, sway, toe, and solid subframe)

After I had the pfadt stuff installed I noticed my rear makes a howling noise when I go around a corner real slow, or am backing out of a parking spot/driveway. I also noticed that in stop and go traffic the rear will clunk at slow mph when I hit the accelerator when I'm already creeping. I noticed a lot of play in the rear when I changed the fluid... And when I say play, I'm talking about having the rear jacked up and the tires will spin about an inch in either direction before they "lock" if I have it in park.

So should I try and get this warrantied? I'm about to supercharge the beast anyway, and will prob need to rebuild it with stronger axles and diff gears should I just have it rebuilt?

Anyone else have problems with the factory diff?

Please note that I am in Noway accusing pfadt... I think the problem has always been there and I'm just noticing it now cuz of the stiffer bushings.

Thanks in advance!

So what happened?
