I gotta think that if the pinion bearing was FUBAR, it didn't do the pinion *or* ring gear any favors. Also, how much metal did it dump in the rest of the bearings?

Car is done. Picking it up around 430. We shall see what happens....

Profab chassis called me back, he said he did research and he is blaming the transmission. Apparently a common issue with t56s? Something about one of the shafts getting too much play in them

Driving it home now. Exhaust don't feel right up front lol. Vibration is still there but it's definitely not as bad as before. It's gotten better. The rear is pretty loud on decel in neutral especially around 30-35
