(I called it that so you northerners would know what I was talking about)

How much slack do you have in it? If I put mine in neutral and crawl underneath and turn the driveshaft I get about 1/8th of a turn out of it before it tightens up.
The front-rear gives me about 1/10th of a turn.
Is this normal?
I have a locker in the rear, and when I installed it the ring and pinion looked fine and had no wear patterns I could see.
Seems like alot of slack to me.

Also, on a related note- when I'm cruising at 55 or so sometimes I get a whine out of my axle. Not really loud, but noticeable. All 3 of my 715's have had that and I assumed it was just part of their set-up. Do you guys get it?

I'm just getting paranoid as the big drive is coming up.

Thanks,
-B.

If you put the Detroit No-slip or a Detroit locker in, the freeplay is normal. The whine I think you will find is in the transfer case and not in the rear axle, or rear-rear axle to some. :P Glen

Chris,

Rehab is full of guys like you.

Quitters.

You make me sick with your selfish unattendance of our gathering.

What type of extra parts do you recommended taking on long trips?
