    ok so i ran into a little problem yesterday...i was driving my car around and i got on it a few times...i stopped to throw it in reverse to turn around.....and nothing happened when i let out the clutch...it kind of made a whining noise....tried putting it in first...same thing...well i thought i might have messed up the clutch or flywheel but im hoping thats not the case....we got the car back to the house (towing/pushing).....well im looking at the car and i see a little bit of what looks to be transmission fluid by the passenger side axle....the axle looks like it popped out a little....what im wondering is ....if just one axle popped out wouldnt the other axle still have power since the tranny has a LSD?....also what would cause the axle to pop out like that? the car is a 92cx with a b16 swap and a gsr tranny.... could the axle be too short? also... my car was making a squeaky noise (when it was running).... well we thought it was a wheel bearing so i swapped out the steering knuckle on both sides from my si hatch ( whole brake assembly too)....well we took the car out and it was still making the noise....so we concluded that it wasnt the wheelbearing....well i was under the car today and i was messing with some stuff and i pushed on one of the tranny mounts and it made the same squeaky noise....i looked a little closer and realized the two bolts that go up into the frame arent 100% tight...well i tried to tighten them....no luck....tried to take them out...no luck...any suggestions? here are some pics i took....

    the guy i bought the car from said he hasnt driven the car for about 6 months...so the swap was done at least 6 months ago....and yea the clip is good...when i put the axle back in it clipped in place....the axle just seems too short...im thinking whoever did the swap lied to him about the tranny...he said it was a gsr tranny but i think its just the stock b16a2 tranny....anyone know off hand if those axles are longer then the gsr axles?
