so if you guys look at last thread you'll see that i changed my axle shaft recently.. and it was not as painless as i had hoped..
the reason i changed my axle shaft was because i was starting to hear a slight grinding-like noise along with what i can only explain as shuddering metal? and i hoped that the axle shaft i've been neglecting to change was the source of that awful noise. and turns out.. it wasn't..
so since it was time to change the diff. fluid i went ahead and started to take the cover off and didn't find anything out of the ordinary.. except i saw that there was a lot of play in the gears.
when i had the front end up in the air.. i was able to move my wheels from the 12 o'clock position to about 1 o'clock and going backwards to the 11 o'clock position. is my front end on its way out? what do i need to check/fix/change/replace?
any insights would be much appreciated.. thanks for your help!!
