    Well my dad took a small piece of wire and fished it inside the drain hole and tried to tell around for anything setting in the bottom. He doesn't think it's in there. And if it was, wouldn't it be stuck to the magnet on the drain plug? Possibly?

    is there even enough room in the hosing with the ring gear for that thing to sit there and now get chewed up? I mean safest bet is to pull the third and be dead sure because you dont want a rebuild...but i think you would have noticed by now

    I know on mine the ring gear is on the otherside of the diff from the drain plug.

    Well I had drained the diff already and it wasn't there.

    I would think so too. I don't see how something that size could not be hurting anything.

    What would be a reason for someone to pull the gear of the actuator? I wouldn't be surprised if there was no reason.... Whoever owned this truck before wasn't very smart. You should see the axle seal I replace. Looks like someone punched it in there with a screw driver... And the interior had mold growing on it and covered with oil so yeah...

    Also had my wheel bearings replaced, again, 2nd time in 9000 miles but that's another story for another time. This happened last month but thought some of you might like to see what happens when they get wet.
