Because the OP's dealer denied it, his information is likely flagged in the system and other dealers will not be able to warranty it, even if they wanted to do so. Sucks, but some dealers are much more picky than others.
This is why it is very important to "feel out" a dealer before you take anything in for warranty work. Dealers that do a huge amount of Corvette sales and service are good places to start. Since they are more accepting of alot of performance mods. Also try to find a dealer that needs your business. Some dealers are so busy, they could care less about keeping you as a customer.

I wouldn't push the car till GM gets a hold of the issues with stuff breaking in the tranny and rear end, they should have issued a TSB by now for an upgraded part. this is happening way to much to not be recognized by GM.

Interesting thread. On my way up to Canada last week, I got a tire pressure sensor warning in the drivers rear tire. after a few miles it came back, and the warning reset with a restart. I got up to Zoro mufflers to do my exhaust system and bam...........grease all in my inner wheel. And at the time I was going 65 steady on the highway.

These CV boot are defective for sure. My dealer ordered my parts to replace when they come in about 3 weeks. Also replacing the axle.

I can understand their refusal to warranty this particular part if you did any driveline mods that caused this OE part to fail. But refusing warranty because of the tire tread and exhaust mod???? There has to be more to this story.

I just got a call from my Service Advisor, Gregg Johnson at Davidson-Gebhardt in Loveland, CO. He told me that they are overnighting a new half shaft and I should have my car back by tomorrow afternoon. Great Job Chevrolet, My faith in my choice of cars has been restored.

I can't believe all the crying and moaning for you guys expecting GM to fix your car under warranty for you clearing abusing your car. I wouldn't expect too many cars to handle 4k clutch drops for too long before wearing down or breaking something.

I can damn guarantee I can pull up to the dealer in my 80k Z06 with a broken halfshaft and they wouldn't repair it either if I was doing stuff to my car like that..

Man, did they see you coming. I would fully expect these cars to handle 4k
clutch drops, since the launch control, that was designed by GM, sets the
engine rpms to 4200 to 4800 rpms. And the owners manual gives us directions on how to use it. Why wouldn't you expect the car to handle it?

I forgot to mention, my grease came out WITHOUT a noticable place where it came from. We could not find a loose ring, tear or pull back in the rubber boot.

I have been doing 4k clutch drops since may 2008. no reason this car shouldn't be able to handle it ESPECIALLY when launch control came as a standard feature set to 4200+ rpm...

Ligenfelter makes replacement half shafts that are good for 1000 horsepower. They are kind of pricey but rather than keep paying for GM parts that will probably break again and not be covered by warranty, this might be the way to go. Just a thought. Crock of s**t that your dealer denied warranty coverage.

Fesler Half shafts and Center sections

We have race half shaft that we sell as an upgrade for people that want to drive the cars hard. You need to find another dealer to work on the car for you. There is no reason the dealer would not replace this part but you are going to break it again if you stay factory. Anyone that drops the clutch on the right surface is going to snap things.

We are offering new center sections that will be done very soon and be able to handle well over 1000HP along with new shafts that we build as they are ordered. If anyone is interested please call or PM me and I will see what we have. I try to keep them on hand

We are also designing a complete new rear end that will handle over 1500HP all day long. We are rebuilding everything to handle huge power so the rear end will handle all you can give it.

My dealer had no problem covering me under warranty. They will only have my car for a day and a half. There great.
