i got a manual and im gonna pick up everything i need tomorrow, im guessing this problem came about because of my rear shifting a while ago? also i was leaking oil from the differential cover, and a little up near my tranny, its not tranny fluid though i think because its not a reddish color. would anything else inside my rear be damaged from the shifting? and how could i tell? i never had a rear apart before so im not sure what to look for.
oh and also is my driveshaft supposed to be able to turn back and fourth a little bit or is some bushings or something damaged?
