And alright, I can manage the bearings. I tore down the front diff so far. The bearings at the diff itself are fine. However, I did find that the front CV shaft is almost destroyed... I think I remember reading that's a common problem for these truggys? Anyway, I think it'll be a better idea to go ahead and order and new one instead of waiting for this one to blow when I need it most.
Yeah the CVDs tend to be finicky on occasion. Best course of action when you buy new ones is to just not touch em, pack em in grease, and put a CVD Boot on em. Seems that when you take them apart or mess with them they have issues, but if you just leave em alone they last longer. Just what I've heard from other Hot Bodies drivers....I have yet to have a CVD problem.
