Hi as some of you know I was Vw when I joined up and I was good at fixing it. However one weekend with you lot and iv now sold it and bought a chevy s10 pickup

Iv had a bit of a knock when turning or going over bumps since iv owned her and while trying to track down a squeak earlier I thought I'd look for this knock to and on inspection my rear Hub assembly can move in and out when pulled / pushed in passenger side more so now on a Vw rear axle I'd be changing my bearings but on this it's an in and out movement and being rwd I'm not use to axles as such I'm guessing it's not normal for there to be this play does anyone have any ideas what it could be ??


Thanks Arnie :)

it's normal for a C-clip axle to clonk in and out

Bring it down over the weekend mate. We'll investigate further.
