It happens under big compression moments, and particularly if you get air with one side only and shock the rear.

Aftermarket axles typically fix it, as does getting a drop knuckle.

Both the private seller and dealer salesperson have the same objective to sell you the car, and both hope you buy.

What do you do on public roads that requires it to be off?
