be objective. when the car is on the the ground remove the outer CV nut, measure the actual in-out movement that you can get out of the CV joint.

Normally binding results in engine bucking and severe vibration. Clicking is normally just a simple outer CV joint replacement (use quality, OEM or HDK, not chinese junk)

I think its binding as when you take a corner at speed and when the suspension is loaded it clicks very noisily also the angle of the driveshafts when on the ground, there is a small amount of free play in the axle when on the ground and plenty when up in the air just wondering if anyone had custom ones made or their ones machined?

Cheers for the info I've got the box out now and will use saeco Wilson for the bearings and the other one from nissan

I'll be manual converting my P11 Primera CVT soon and will have a spare CVT if you're keen on purchasing. 270k km  so quite high, but still runs great.

why do you think its binding? Have you removed the outer CV Nut and check the free play available?

The 32v gearbox bearings depend on which bearing is sus. Saeco wilson can supply all of them except the large side diff bearing that is nissan specific so needs to be bought as a genuine part.

Thanks for your reply. I guess I should go there and have a look. I was thinking of heavy parts like engines, transmissions, or parts that require you to get under the vehicle like a power steering rack, exhaust system, etc. I'm looking for a power steering rack, but I'm just thinking it will be a bit tricky extracting it from under the vehicle.

What parts are you thinking you're unable to remove? You can buy any part off the car, although do your research before removing something as something are only sold complete or are sold seperatley as individual parts even though they can't be removed.

They do have cranes there to lift engines out. There's never been anything I've been unable to remove at Pick A Part, sometimes it does have to be done a little rough due to space limitations and\or lack of equipment but there's always a way to do it. And yes wheeling an engine from the furtherest corner of their yard on their useless trolleys with flat tyres is a great time in case you were wondering! Haha.

Once they've decided the vehicle has been in the yard long enough or has been stripped of any saleable parts they remove it and crush it and it's recycled for scrap steel.

Hey everyone, has anyone got any info on how to cure axle binding when cornering hard, isnt the outers that are making the noise but looking at the angle of the driveshafts it looks like they may be bottoming in the inner CV cups? Also would anyone have a good supplier for gearbox bearings for the rfs32v gearbox as mine is a little rumbly

What's the deal with places like Pick A Part ? Yes I get how it works in general, but what about for components that aren't really feasible to remove in their yard ? You aren't allowed to take jacks into pick a part. Do they just sell off the easy to remove parts, and then what happens next ? The car gets crushed ? Thanks.
