    ive had axle shafts/cv joints, halfshafts, or whatever ya wanna call em since june of last year( when i noticed the dreaded ring of grease in the wheel well).
    last week i had a right turn click click click start soooo time to replace them FINALLY!!
    i impressed myself- cv joints, tie rod ends, and new sway bar in 4 hours!
    but that dam right turn click click click is STILL there. a few days ago i did a search here for possible causes and was going to take a look at it tomorrow, but ill be dam if i can find the thread(s) that mentioned what the cause could be. this short term memory crap has me not rememorying what search term i used.
    anyone have suggestions on what to investigate as the cause of this dam right turn click click click?

    oh- moog solid sway bar and poly bushings made quite a difference in handling.

    nice spare part to just have laying around lol

    you'll know if thats the issue after you take it off and hold it nose down and the gear just slides into view.

    i bought the starter because i had an occasional time it would have a slight hesitation when starting. hit the key, starter engage, and take a second to start spinning the flywheel.

    sure enough- the gear just slid down. 20 mile twisting turning test drive. no more clicking.
