quite possibly only me reading this, but onto the rear!
things immediately noticed is the front bearing for the prop is shot, it took me a few hours before realising that my mountings have been adapted to take bmw e30 bearing. Good in a sense as they are cheap and available, bad because i like things to be right..
Cv boots will be replaced and leak from front of rear diff fixed. both cv joint boots on the prop are torn too so will have to be swapped
