so the guibo was replaced during the subframe reinforcement. I brought up my issue with my guy who did hte subframe and he gave a correct description based on my symptoms. I said the clunk is only when the gear engages, sometimes when shifting, but mostly taking off from first. He thinks its slack in the driveshaft which honestly is pretty on point if I am picturing what slack will do. Is there a way to decrease this slack or put my car back to the way it was.

I'm looking to pick up a used BMW 330i and I was wondering if I could get you to inspect a car for me. If not and you could refer me to a refutable garage that can that'd be great too thanks.

** Feel free to message me for work, I don't have school til next month **

Spring installs, header installs, front control arm bushings, rear trailing arm bushings, full cooling system overhauls, pretty much anything I can do it. Snap-On tools, and lifts are available. Ball park price is anything from 20$ to 350$ My rates are gauraunteed lowered then any shop.

If you are tight on space and your welcome to rent my tools and my driveway lol. We can work something out.
