It should be fine but if it gets any worse, it will let the diff move back. That being said, I wouldn't recommend driving it but if you do, be ready for anything to happen. Too bad it's not the shackle end. That would just beat the box floor up.

depends which end of the car the solid mount bushing is on (forward or back. if this were like a ford truck with the shackle forward of the solid mount point for the spring, i'd be nervous driving.

I got quoted $250-$260 to replace the whole leaf spring. It sucks because this is the ONLY vehicle I have for work until the next two weeks!
