Tire moves in and out on axle

Did changing anything (c-clips) do any good? I guess I will plan to pull the back tires and drums to check brakes. Wouldn't hurt to pull the diff cover off either to do a visual and change the fluid.

I didn't like the way the spider gears looked (at 130K miles), so I rebuilt the entire rear end with new gears, bearings, seals and a detroit truetrac torsen limited slip differential. I reused the c-clips.
Best MPG to date:
21.0

I guess the only thing left to do now is open up the diff. Will have to do that later this week..

Had a shop check it out and of course, it was fine. It just didn't feel right to me. Guess I don't jack up vehicles all the time and try moving the wheel in and out.... lol

It's nice when on a rare ocassion I can say: "Told you so". I'm happy for you that I was right. Believe me, I won't let go to my head.

Bob, You did tell me so! :ty:

I had the shop check it out when they had it in the air checking the brakes. I just thought it was odd. Don't think I ever had one move that far, but then again, not sure if I ever really checked a vehicle either.

Again :ty:
