2 semi-quick newbie questions on rearend.
New here, to ford`s, and to newer vehicles, and to posting in general. Post mechanical experience is in bugs and sami`s, so I am not used to the subtle signs of these newer Rangers that things are bad.
First, is the rear drive shaft supposed to rattle around a bit toward the front end? ie. as if there is a little slack between an inner and outer portion? Yes, the U-joints are good and stiff, and I am not talking of spin-slack.
Second, passenger rear wheel goes in-out quite a bit with slack and pop or ding at ends of slack, other side does not. Tire also goes up-down and front back. So... Just the bearing, or axle also, or diff. also, or do I just start digging in the diff.
Any information would be helpful. Oh, and hello everyone. If it is real bad I can sit it and drive an old samuri, but I WILL NOT take it to a shop.
Have a nice day.
