I was wondering if, while i have the back wheels off ground, drums off, if I can turn on the engine, and put in to gear, and check the spin of the axles to make sure no visible wobble or warp,, or, is that just an stupid thing to do? not putting on the on the gas, just checking on idle.. or, if that would do anything at all to figuring out my wobble before putting on the drums again.
Pass on running the car on stands
Just grab the axel and physically move it around to see if you feel less than a tight fit
Put it all back together and test to see if problem is corrected
Kim, take the tire off and put a few of the lug nuts on to hold the drum in place. Run at idle and check the drum and axle at the same time.
Ok. Soon as i get them bk from machinist. They are having trouble cutting new face in drum. Ssid they are getting chatter and not cutting clean. Thay have moved to the lathe to get more stable grip. At least thats wat they say. Hoping they dnt tear them up an i have to get new set. They are expensive
Be sure the car is supported well as you will need to get in and out of it --to run it in neutral --as that will be shifting the cars weight a bit
Putting chocks under the front wheels helps keep the car in place
Not sure what it is you are looking for by running the rear end in place like that
