Okay here is a pic of the full cv axle.
and this is of the joint that was broken. it was all looses and felt disconnected inside.
Im gonna start from the very begininning to try and get all the info out.
3 weeks ago drving to school my spring broke the upper ring of the coil. I had driven some that day around town because I had not realized what had happened yet. As soon as I found out I parked it. Then I ordered Eibach lowering springs and toikico blues. I am still waiting on those so I went to a junkyard and bought a used shock/spring. I drove the car down the street and then pulled it in the driveway. everything pulls fine, all gears are normal.
So i pull the old one off, which had broken yet again just sitting there, and it looked like this.
So I installed the new one and everything seemed to bolt up fine. I started the car, put it in reverse, and started to back out my driveway (which is a short driveway but at a decline. So I get to the bottom and it stops moving. I give it gas, it just revs like its in neutral. so I put it in drive, and it grinds then changes gears, but still just revs. I put in in everygear and each gear the same. So I jacked it up, took off the wheel, and determined the axle was loose becuase I was moving it back and forth ( on the wheel side of the axle, not the trans side). So after i get some help pushing it up in the driveway, I get the axle out. I go down to advance and buy a new one and put it in. It lines up short about two inches compared to the old one. It was also missing the ring that goes against the trans seal. So i took it back and got a new one. BTW they all measured the same length out of the car. The new one was the same but we went with it and bolted it all up. When we put on the spindle nut it pulled out somewhere along because it all lined up perfect, but everything is all still sealed and tight and flush. So i threw everything back on put it in reverse and it did the same thing, only it only grinds going into park but not in any other gear, but no gear works. Park doesnt work by the way, my ebrake is holding everything.
So could the driving i did on te bad spring have done this? It worked fine before i pulled the shock tho. And when i took the axle no fluid came out, but it showed fluid. My dads prelude gushed fluid when we changed his.
