Axle Problem

Well since my 5th gens not with us anymore I am trying to get the 87 running. My axle is now sticking out to far like it is not all the way in the transmission. I slid it in a the snap ring thing snapped into pace. I believe I might have pulled apart my CV joint. What do you guys think? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thnx guys

Re: Axle Problem

The only way to tell would be to pull it apart.

Is it on the driver side or the passenger side?

If its the passenger side I'm almost positive there is no midshaft. Its the same as the outter cv joint on the driver side. Take it apart and put the square/rectangle walkers on their little clips. Then make sure they're all facing straight and walk them into the axle (may take some moving back & forth) then pull the rubber back down. Make sure the axle has walked all the way down the square sliders.

Make sure when you pull the rubber from the CV down, flip it inside out and down. When you put it back up, just flip it right side in and close the clamp.

well since its on the drivers side, is it the inside or the outside? The outside CV is the same as the passenger side (which is what I just explained)

well open it up then. It can't be that hard to put it together. I put my axle back together on the first try, and I had never done it before. Its cake.


And its got a lot of blue icing. Make sure you have a few shop rags lying around to use for your hands.

Re: Axle Problem

Ok I've got it out on the carport. You can tell that it is separated cause it is bulging out against the boot. I'll take it apart sometime later cause I am getting ready to go to the movies. Thnx smokey.
