    spin: I have been assembling the car's drivetrain as follows, 89 hf body w/ JDM 89 b16a1, Y1 trans lsd, hasport billet mount kit, 89 Si spindles/hubs(yes, the dust seals are out) and am using90-93 teg axlesto include the intermediate shaft..................now keep in mind that the car runs and drives great except when I turn past 1/2 turn of the steering wheel. I have tried installing numerous sets of axles to include 86-89 sets, 86-89 teg shafts and outer CVs w/90-93 inner joints,90-93 sets more times than i can remember.

    Has anyone else had or heard of this prob.? ANY advice would be more appreciated than you can imagine.

    hey man i had the exact same setup as u have right now but i used the 89 integ axles and nothing ever took a sh*t on me and i had the car for 1yr strong and banging gears ona daily basis and i didn't have a problem with the axle..and i also had the HASPORT mount's one thing i can think of that my friend did on his hf is that he put on a dx kuckle that was bent so he had ur issues untill i found the problem...but check this out its really good references on axles...
    Hasport axles guide
    theres a nother good one that i ran into a while ago but i forgot the link of it i just printed the page it had the actual length of the sir's..but il see if i can find it....

    What exactly is the problem?



    And what issue would that be?He didn't say "this is happening",just when he makes 1/2 turns on the steering wheel.There are a number of problems it could be.

    the noises the axles are making include...whining, grinding, thumping, clicking ....i 'm fairly certain that these axles are just a hair too long

    origin for all of the axles i've used is all the parts store, the axles were all rebuilts though i ve reinstalled the motor twice to ensure it isnt hanging up at any points or crooked etc.. my chassis is straight i've had it decked while at alighment shop.
