If you mean the hub is moving, are you sure you tighten the nut on the halfshaft enough??? That thing should be cranked right tight. The wheel bearing is in all the way, straight and proper?
yes that is all perfect, works great, although it took me along time getting that bearing in. I am talking about where the drive axel connects to the differential, where there or 8-10 hex screws. on both sides of the dif i can move it maybe 1/2 an inch.

want pics of what im talking about?

It allows the movement so when the suspension goes up and down it will not bind. Unless you have a solid axle type suspension which won't need the movement

its not that i dont know how things work on a car... my greatest accomplishments are rebuilding an automatic transmission in an old mercedese (the only thing that was confusing was the valve body), and rebuilding a cylinder head from an older mazada.... so i consider myself somewhat mechanically inclined. id like to learn how to improve a cars performance and effeiciency now...

If you did those things you shouldn't need to ask so many questions. The infomation is out there, go get it, and then when you cant find something or you're not sure post. Also if you REALLY wanna learn about e30s, join up r3vlimited.com but trust me they'll rip you apart if you ask questions that have been asked eleventybillion times. If you can last there its a good e30 site.
