To the guys running stronger axles

Are you noticing more play in the rear now on your manual? The drivetrain seems loose now for me and theres some clunking going on, especially with pushing the clutch in or out. I can feel the slack on them if i grab the axle with one hand and twist it back and forth. Just wanted to hear some feedback before i send them off to get looked at. Its been driving me crazy, to the point i put the stockers back in. Just wanted to know if you guys felt a difference also in the drivetrain after installing

Hey DietCoke, do you have a Auto or stick? I was told that the m6 will feel more slack then the auto does. I noticed it right away. I think I might just have to send these out now to be rebuilt. I bought them second hand from the forum and was told they only had 200 miles on them. Stock Diff for me also

Hmmm, which axles are they? I have some GForce1320's in mine (A6) and no play/slack...

they are the Gforce1320's. Gforce said i can send them off and they will replace them for me. They have been great answering my questions. I just wanted to see what others thought before shipping out parts that heavy.

Do you have stock diff bushings? Mine started that after putting ing the harder bushings and taking out the slack from the stock rubber ones.

When you say you can feel slack in them. Are you able to see that the slack is contained with the axle and you are not feeling anything from the diff?

Say you were to set the PB, hold the inner axle stub (or have someone else hold the DS) and grab the center section of the axle and twist. Does the center axle section actually rotate?

Stock diff bushings are in. I put in the axles and noticed the extra play in the drivetrain when driving, so I put the stockers back in and it went away. I can hold 1 end of the axle and turn the shaft with the other hand back and forth with the axle off the car and feel about a 1/4inch of movement happening from the joint. I tried the same thing with the stockers and they shift maybe a 1/16 at the most. At first I thought it was just one side, but now that both is off im noticing it in both gforce axles. One side a little more then the other

It makes you feel like you cant drive a stick with the play in there. Its not possible to shift smooth without a clunk especially when babying the clutch at low speeds

Def sounds like the axles are defective or got hammered hard from the previous owner (competition mode launches repeatedly)...

I have a stick. There is zero play in my axles (DSS/Hendrix), I don't really know what you're experiencing.

Is it really necessary to change axles and driveshaft? I'm SC'd too and beat on my vehicle pretty hard sometimes (6+k RPM), no busted DS or axles.
