How many of you 325IS owners have had to chage the rear axles and CV'S??????? Sounds like its starting to go on my car after 330000km not bad I guess but what are the begining stages when this shit goes???

you'll get a clunking souns when you go to take off..but the torerances on the reaer axles are really good,they dont really wear out..id check the rubber on the back of the tranny and the doughnut that the driveshaft sits in..they usually go,not the axles....

You mean the guidbo or whatever I replaced that .....

There's no clunking when I take off but a slight vibration when turning left at high speeds???

sounds like a wheel bearing..check the play and tighten it up if need be..
