Even in nuetral, out of gear, car off. It just has to roll. Doesn't matter what gear it was ever in.

Nope. The entire tranny back to hubs are 100% stock and never taken off for anything.

Is that even possible to do?

Either way, there's no way it is. It would take one really inept person on the factory assembly line. Probalby several.

I don't think the differential had anything to do with the bearing going bad. But I dunno. I'm a guesser.
So the guy at the shop was right about the joint only flexing on acceleration and driving.







I guess I should define angled a bit better.

It wasn't extreme by any means. It was just higher in the biddle. But barely. Just enough to notice with the naked eye. He was talkng 3 degrees. and thinking it should be at zero or one degree.
