drive shaft/ diff

Hi all!

I have just bought a p reg uk spec impreza 2.0 turbo!

Do the front drive shafts have play???

If you grab hold of the iner cv joint and move it up and down there seems to be alot of play????

many thanks Dave....

They do tend to move a bit alright dont think Id be to worried just once they no vibrations at speed from the car as that could mean a worn inner cv joint and they no knocking or clicking on slow turns as that would mean the outer cv joint could be worn
