Yeah it's one of the worst I've seen. I cranked on the nut to take up some of it, not that that's an acceptable repair. But it'll let me do the light, around-town driving I'm doing now per the shutdown. 3.55 axle from an '09 CVPI w/16k on it is currently on it's way. That unit I mentioned in my first post wasn't available.
