I was wondering if anybody could tell me what the symptoms of a failing/failed angle gear are. Recently I've noticed that my car ('98 V70 XC, 115k miles) makes somewhat of a shudder when comming to a stop, or pulling away. It seems to be worse in tight turning situations. I just installed new front control arms and shocks last night, and inspected the CV boots on both sides, and they looked fine. <p>The shudder definately seems driveline, but not transmission related. I'm afraid it may be the angle gear. Thanks in advance for your help.
