theres not much slop in the cv's but I can hold the axle and inner cv and get play there, on both cv's and rear driveshaft cv. im sure the loose diff has wore those out over time. working on getting a better rear diff soon.

Should have a rear diff on the way soon thanks to Dean16v. Then ill systematically replace the worn inner cv and prop shaft cv. Also I finally had time to finish the final door card. That hex pattern really sucks to stitch... had to take a break from it. Waiting on engine rebuild stuff to come in to start on that end of it as well.

I love the stitching work! You did all of it by hand? Looks like you have a nice project going.

Its with a machine, but with this patern, there is a lot of hand work. you can sew the zig zag lines but then have to go back and hand stitch the ends to close of the hex's. there is 4 stitches on each end of a hex, and two knots per end. each panel I have blisters on the sides of my fingers from hand tying them all. lol. Contemplating making inserts for the seats, but not sure I want to bother as all my seat heaters work, and are in good condition. I will re upholster the upper trim to make it all black.

Diff completely transformed the car, much much tighter, and very quiet, no humming going down the road. still a little slop on the driveshaft due to the cv's having wear, have a spare set from a low miles URs4 driveshaft ill swap on to see if it helps/cures it. Any place to purchase rear cv's searching seems to show fronts...

Replaced both cv on the prop shaft today, even better now! Only slop now is in the rear cvs, inner sand others. I've found inner repair kits but not outers, or even complete cvs for the rear? Anyone have a source for these?

That interior hexagonal stitching is beyond gorgeous, my only personal opinion is that the dash panel should have the attached hexagonal stitching to match the door cards. Again, not a knock whatsoever on your choice, just would love to see it.

Ordered the parts to rebuild my rear cv shafts, chassis should be tight as a drum when I get those together. no more drive train slop. In searching for my issues, ive noticed a lot of guys having this clunk and bang from rear end of the CQ's, first assumption always the rear diff mount, but rarely solved these issues. ive found that all my issues were in the prop shaft CV and rear axle CV's. I have replaced the rear diff as well, with a good used item, and it did make a big difference. My CQ is higher mileage, around 230k, and everything was tired. I think previous owners played a lot with the rear diff lock. (wire already cut) which puts a lot of strain on those parts in the rear. Still working here and there building the motor. will begin the swap shortly, Stage 1 nearing completion. :)

Love the stitching, that is a great idea. I may have to do something like that on my red car when I re-do the door cards.

Rebuilt CV's solved about 80% of the remaining rear end (THUMP). still a little from somewhere, however it drives very very nicely now, and it also solved my 50-70 MPH vibration. doing a tight circle with the diff lock on now has zero slop, where as before there was kind of a banging in the rear end as one wheel was forced to turn more. Didn't take any pics of the process. lost the tool to take apart the struts, so I couldn't replace my rear struts. I also replaced a hella squeaky and burning smelling heater blower motor, and did front sway bar bushings.

Anyone know if the rear cv axles are the same in the 4000 as CQ? I know the diff will interchange and inner cv diameter is same but outer? Got a donor 4K (fell into my lap) I wish like hell it wasn't but body is trashed so parting it out. It's low miles so harvesting the drivetrain and it's all even tighter than the newer stuff I swapped in already. If the axles will fit I'll swap em
