    everytime i'm driving and make a turn it makes noises and it feels like the front wheels are gonna come off. i checked everything but nothing was loose. so i'm guessing its the transmission. and its a JDM B16 LSD transmission. when i went to the tracks and ran my axles kept popping out. what is the problem?

    Maybe differential and/or differential bearings took a crap? Also, have you checked the axles to make sure the joints are still good?

    Reminds me of right after I swapped my engine and tranny for the D15B. There was always this knocking sound coming from the axels when I turned and it felt like the front right wheel was going to fall off.

    So I got really frustrated and took a left turn at 25 mph and ran that fucker into a curb. Haven't had a problem since :D. Other than the scratches on my rim :( but they're old anyway.

    The axel probably isn't pushed into the tranny all the way or the spring clip might be screwed.

    you may have the wrong half shaft..

    i dont think i wanna run my car to the curb. dont want to mess up my rims plus my
    car is dropped pretty low like 1 1/2 inch from the ground. my axle joints are still fine. axle boot still fine.

    my motor is a gsr but with the b16 tranny so i know i dont have a b16 half shaft.

    the axles feels loose like it would slip out with just a light pull. and when you put them back in and start driving it pops out as soon as you go forward. so i dont know what to do.
