Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
Hear roaring sound from passenger side wheel well. took some of it apart thought it was cv joint but the shaft that goes into transmission has alot of slack in it about 1/8" and ideas? hope i am wrong about it being the bearing in the final drive.
What direction of `play'are you meaning? You mean in and out,or up and down, or rotational contact? don-ohio

SOURCE: CV joint noise
this sounds like a normal condition. sorry i cant give a real great technical explanation why, but it is. are you jacking up one side of the vehicle only? you will find that if both wheels are off the ground or if one is still on the ground, it will act completely different. just the way the final drive is set up.

its easier and faster to replace the whole axle you can get one for less than 100 dollars.
