Re: testing center diff

My QSW does the same thing. I don't know what kind of car you have. I have
traced it to lots of play in the rear diff and particularly the center diff.
Oh well- I'm not really going to fix it. If I jack up one rear wheel and put
the car in gear, I can turn the wheel about 1/8 turn, and if I look under the
car while doing it, it's obvious that most of the play is in the center
diff/transmission/front diff.
