Interesting! Just did the oil change and lube on the 80 a couple weeks ago. With 122K on the odo maybe it is time to just get the shafts rebuilt. Both the 80 and LX probably could use it I guess

P.S. working on a stock 80 sucks...No room to crawl around under it. Although reaching stuff in the engine bay is a lot easier I've asked the if we could just put a little bit of lift on it but no dice, so far...
