    Default VC Holden V8 Tailshaft Knocking

    Hi to everyone on this site!!
    I have had my VC for 27 years and it has done 156,000Kms! There has been a thump,thump, thump on takeoff especially when turning right.
    I need to take off very slowly so their is no Knocking on what sounds like the tailshaft (two piece) hitting on the floor??Has anyone got any ideas in what is worn to make this happen??
    Cheers MR HDT

    centre bearing as mentioned most likely or cv joint. cv joint doesnt go often unless boot is torn or perished. some new uni joints while its out probably couldn't hurt either
