in the drive train was my pinion bearings in my diff at 160,000 miles! I have had to replace "consumables" such as wheel bearings, ball joints, but she's got 160,000 miles for god's sake! Things ware out! She was made in 1988. I have NO idea why the diff gave out, it should lase 250,000 miles. Probably a heave right foot problem. I drive hard, lots of hard exceleration, hard cornering, high revs, for over 80,000 miles. I HAVE replaced stuff as "upgrades", but I do not count this as ware and tear.
