Sloppy Driveshaft???

847 Views 12 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  **DONOTDELETE**
I noticed that there is a lot of rotation on my rear drive shaft when it is just sitting on the ground. I just crawl under there in the drive way and give it a turn. It turns at the very least 10 - 20 degrees maybe more. And I have notice a big klunk in the rear it the clutch comes out too fast. There is a quieter click noise every time that does not sound to horrible. So anyway i am worried that it might be a rear end that I need. I think it has something to do with my vibrations also. The reason for this is now I have a small vibration resonating through the vechicle all the time now. It is still bad in Second gear. Any way let me know what you all think.

Thank you

This may sound like a big "DUH!" reply, but you checked to make sure your u-joints were still good, right? I had that EXACT same prob recently and it turned out to be a wasted u-joint.
