i would check the arms going to the wats link, these usually bend when a gutter is hit..
and the slight wobble in the wheel could either be a buckled rim or the rear axle could be bent..

Yeah probably is rim actually... Could try taking it off and eye-balling the disc... if it wobbles its definitely a bent axle/diff...

See how you go anywyay...

Tim

Those arms look strait as, layed under them and looked strait up and also looked down them, cant see any bending what so ever, so these would usualy bend before the diff itself? I think its just a bit of a buckled rim, ill try and chuck a video up tommorrow, would take alot to bend the diff id say?

Hmmmm....


Could be either bent axle or bent disc... more likely the axle though...

Thing with this is if it isn't trued you will see the pads diminish very fast...

I helped a mate with a bent axle in a VR/VS ute... It did a set of pads from Syndey to Leeton... Warped discs chop pads out... Well his was a bent axle, not disc, not diff...

Best getting that checked by someone with the right gear...

Cheers,
Tim
