Axle Shaft Query

Im just wondering can an axle shaft be damaged? And if so is it noticible to the eye? Is the only thing that can be damaged on them the teeth at the end of it, and if it is damaged would it be worn? Cause i want to put my original axle shafts into a new diff but my diff i have now is very noisy in neutral and when i take my foot off the clutch its very clunky so i was wondering if my axles were ruined, thus defeating the purpose of putting them into the new diff!

Ooh also do you have to have a gasket behind the retaining plate? as i noticed there isnt one on there now.

Thanks..

Re: Axle Shaft Query

It's not your diff thats noisy in neutral, it's the gearbox. When the car is stationary and in neutral the diff is doing nothing. The only time the diff is working is when the car is moving. Is is only clunky in first gear or all gears? There's a good chance that it's your gearbox clunking not the diff.

Re: Axle Shaft Query

its not noisy when its stationary and in netrual, say im doing 60km/hr and i put the car in neutral it makes the noise, does it also when its in gear but alot less, and you can sort of hear its coming from the back. but i may be wrong :-S i hope not! its clunky in all the gears, like if you take your foot off the clutch fairly quickly it goes clunk! thanks for the info, i guess i will find out when the new diff goes in, do you know anything about the axle shafts??
