Default Shaft torsional play

Hi all,

I have noticed my NS shakes a bit on stopping or starting the car. So i checked the UJ and it's still strong and no play at all. However the shaft plays torsionally, both rear and front prop shaft.

Here's a video

Is that normal?

Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts

It's an auto NS 3.2 DiD btw

Hey its called rear axle backlash. The acceptabel limit is 5mm movement. Below is link to online serviuce manual my friend that can be found in this forum.

Rear axle backlash check is found in section 27.

Looking at your video is looks about right and very much the same as my NS.
