Alright guys, some of you already know butI need all of you to check something for me by either taking pics OR I really like a video. My issue is that I have gear oil on my right CV Axle. I posted a pic on my FB about it and a lot of guys are saying that my CV looks like it has slipped out. I dont know, I've never owned a 4x4 until this truck.
I had jeweler54 do the same for me and his looks just like mine and has some play in it. His truck only has 9k miles im at 85k miles. he doesnt have gear oil everywhere, but his looks exactly like mine. his cv sticks out o housing just like mine. makes same noise and everything. I think his is fine. i just need to see if ya'll have any play in yours and if yours looks like it sticks out.
Go out to your truck and take a video preferably of you grabbing your PASSENGER side CV axle and kind of pulling it out a little. I want to see how far yours sticks out and if it has any play in it. For reference, here is mine and ben's videos.
and here is a pic:
This is just to see if everyone's is like this so I can mark out the slipped out axle idea. i bet just the seak is bad. i definitely have oil all over the CV
