EB XR6 Uni Joint Problem

ye jacked my car up today and were the rear uni is, (where the diff and tail shaft connect) was hanging a little bit low and on a slight angle. i ran the car while it was still jacked up in gear and my mate sat under lookin at the uni. when u push the accelerator the uni joint lifts up to meet with the diff and tail shaft. the uni joint is fine we checked that so i was thinkin either the tail shaft or the diff isnt sitting properly.

anyone got any ideas??

cheers
brad

Re: EB XR6 Uni Joint Problem

Do you mean the nose of the diff lifts up? This is normal, within limits. Check your upper trailing arm bushes.

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

You are kidding I hope or your mate has a death wish? Jack stands at least?
