Got an 1988 Camaro with 5-speed (305 TBI), and got
drive train questions. 104K miles, and the drivetrain seems
really sloppy, and I'm note sure where to start. Its been
like this for a while, but wanting to find out if I can tighten
this up any way. Letting on/off the gas in 1st gear while
tooling around slowly is horable, and there's gotta be
something I can do. The car is absolutly cherry too.
So, what kind of differential is in this thing, and is there
an easy way to adjust/take up excess gear lash that
might be in the rear end. I've heard that this car as a
T-5 (?) tranny in in - is it possible that these T-5 tranny's
are notoriously "sloppy" as well, and maybe the whole
combination in general is sloppy. Any suggestions ?
Reason I ask is, I'm about to pull out the tranny to
replace a noisy throw-out bearing (and clutch etc while
I'm at it), so suggestions along those lines welcome too.
