wheel wobble


Recommended Posts

Hi Im working on a '71 wagon and the driver side rear wheel has a noticeable wobble.  I tried several wheels to make sure it wasn't a wheel and the hub gets hot after a 10 minute drive.  I figure its probably the bearing or a bent axle shaft but I need to get the axle out to see..  Is there a circlip holding the axle inside the differential? I removed the backing plate behind the hub but it wont budge, also I dont see a clip in the parts catalog schematic  http://www.carpartsmanual.com/Portals/9/Figures/NorthAmerica/normal/510_064_1_vga.png

Anyone ever have this problem before? 


Anyone have an axle for sale?  help is always appreciated
