I can feel some sort of shudder/slippage, not when taking off...but when I'm decelerating in first, then give it just a bit of gas. When decelerating, like coming to a stop sign, I'll slow down in gear. When I push the clutch in, I her a thud/clunk. If I take it out of gear without the clutch, no clunk. As much as I've been reading, it is my driveshaft that is a bit dry. Okay, so I need to grease it up some, but some have experienced it coming back. Okay, how does one stop the clunking due to axle wrap? traction bars. so now I'm weighing around do I just grease the thing up to appease the symptom or fix the root cause. I'm also looking for additional benefits that might come from them as well. That's where I'm coming from.
