    E2 excessive backlash?

    Does anyone know whether or not this backlash from the drive shaft to the diff is excessive? This handbrake is on and the cars in gear.
    80,000km on the car and original diff oil in.

    Cool, looks pretty easy to change the fluid too so might slap some new stuff next weekend.

    Oil change will not affect backlash

    As Eors said, oil can't remove backlash

    I think chippy's referring to the noise rather than the actual measurable backlash, my VE had a very audible clunk when getting on and off the power after a Harrop Truetrac install, rechecked everything including calling Harrop to discuss and the consensus was that it was normal, changed diff oil from 75/90 to 85/140ish and there was a 100% improvement, the backlash was the same but the noise and clunk were nowhere near as noticeable.
