Just wanted to make a post about drive shaft bolts.

Today I took my drive shaft out, because I am doing a tranny swap. I went and grabbed my 12mm wrench to loosen the bolts and WTF:confused: I didn't even need it!! The drive shaft bolts were so loose, I took them out by hand!!! (no wonder I had a vibration above 3000 RPM in O.D.)
I just wanted to make a post on this because it is something we probably all never think too much about, I never thought to check. I'm not telling every one to run outside and jack their car up right now, but next time you are doing some maintanance on you car, check them out. (you will need a 12mm 12pt. wrench, for those that don't know)

Just wanted to give everyone something to think about. If this can help out just one person, then my post was worth it.:)

P.S. Next time it's Loc-tite for me.

Good idea to post that type of thing. I had the same thing. Even after using loc-tite on them they still loosen up. Now I check them all the time. I race quite a bit maybe that is what is doing it but I don't know.:confused:
