i planned on replacing the seals on both sides of the front shafts in the trans that go to the CV axle, because i noticed that there is gear oil leaking from them but on the right front side i noticed that i can grab the CV axle and move it up and down, side to side, anyway i want. The play looks like its actually the shaft that goes into the transmission, not the cv axle moving on the shaft, but it is hard to tell. I havent tried wiggling the other side yet. As you can see in the picture it is soaked in gear oil, power steering fluid, and engine oil from the old EJ25 which i have removed. On the parts car 96 impreza, this is crazy tight and there is no play at all, no matter how hard i try to move that shaft and cv axle. If this car needs transmission work im simply going to cut out the front of the car, where the radiator sets, cut all that out, that way i can strap in a horse of some kind.
