Rear axle Broke

Ok everyone. I have had one of those really bad days.
My wife took my car to the store and the Goat started making a real bad noise and would'nt move. When the wrecker picked the car up I noticed that the drivers side axle was not connected to the third member. It looked like the bolts either sheared or came loose. Has anyone else run into this before?

only 1 other person had this problem, and they were modified. I dont think any stock GTO has had this problem, til now.

I dont think that it sheared the axle now that I have had time to think about. I had it towed to Steves place (aka Alan Young Pontiac) to get it looked at.

I went and looked at it... the bolts backed out, it's a t.s.b. for the 04's. We haven't got it in the shop yet to really look at it.

Verdict is in.....
L/R axle (screwed up the case, won't hold grease)
6 bolts
3 retainers
....not as bad as we thought, could have been worse.
Thanks, Dennis, for bringing you car to us, I know that we are on the other side of Ft. Worth and I really appreciate that!
