As many of you know my car is sat with no engine/gbox/transfer box in and has been for a long time now. It has been moved around a yard a bit by pushing etc aswell as on the trailer to get it home.

I seem to have a lot of movement in the hub where the driveshaft would go, in the bearing. If I put the driveshafts in the front technically would it tighten the lot all up? The cv joint basically tightens the lot up when you bolt the driveshafts in if im correct?

Would any damage of been done moving the car with no front shafts in?


Thanks guys.

Also, bearing in mind all I have is obviously front hubs etc all in place and what will be a gearbox & transfer box in place is all I will need in this picture (the driveshafts at the bottom of the pic obviously)

Is there any sort of intermediate bracket for the long shaft etc?




Cheers guys.

Yeah mate I made the same mistake ages ago. Either leave the driveshafts through the hubs or use a large bolt. The bearings will start to seperate and bind on the calipers/ rotors if don't have the drive shafts in.

Yeah that's what they've done I think mate, the rotors are loose and binding against the pad if we push it around.

Bearings fucked now? Or will they tighten up when I bolt a shaft in?

Mate if your bearings are like that, I'd probably replace them, that's what I did anyway.
