hello I had a problem driving home one day from work , I VERY noticeable vibration that was worse when decelerating , the vibration seemed to be from right rear but I could be wrong, there was a clicking noise I heard also when pulling into the garage. I took the drive shaft off and all four bolts were finger loose (not good) I checked the u joints and they seemed ok not great but still seviceable, the half shaft seemed ok also , is there a way to check the joints I looked in the book and it made sound like it would be noticeable if they were bad, or do you think it was just the drive shaft being loose
sorry for the long post

Hi

Very probable that the loose bolts were some of the problem, but not the majority of it. I suggest inspecting the drive shaft u-joints, just because it sounded like it was coming from the right or left, does not mean that is where the problem lies. I know from experiance.

Will.
