Default RC10T w/ bad rear vibration and slop

I received this RC10T on a trade, and for some reason, it is one of my favorites. It has CVD's on rear that have some type of spring mount (spring loaded) close to the hubs. The cvd's look rusty and old.

Where is the best place to get new ones and which size? I found some on Ebay for 1/4" rear but not sure which this has.

At full throttle, the rear tires vibrate very bad and they have alot of play. I think this is mostly due to the old cvd's.

I plan on going through the whole truck, replacing the shocks and rear arms for sure...

Thanks for your help

The vibration could be from 2 different things, either bad wheel bearings or the wheels just bing unbalanced. The 1/4" axles have a big step down on them, the 3/8" axles have only a small step down into the wheels. Or you could just measure them....
