Looks like I'm replacing the axle stubs on my drivers side when I do my wheel bearings because they have a ton of play in them but first I have to deal with removing the completely butchered rear axle nut. Good thing it's only torqued to 350-400 ft/lbs....
Consider this a PSA for using the proper tools when working on our cars so you don't leave a present for the next person to work on it like someone did for me.
I bought this car in the Fall and while completely going over it I noticed there was excess play in the drivers side axle stub that goes thru the upright. It seems like the splines might be worn out inside the hub as the play is rotational and doesn't seem to be wheel bearings. Maybe from all the power from my 351C (haha).
Please don't ever be the guy that worked on my rear axle stub before I got my Pantera.
Thought some of you might enjoy this video.
I'll let you know what is going on with my axle stubs after I deal with this disaster of an axle nut.
