Re: Hi peeps, been offerd RX4, price? look for?

I've heard of the prop shaft being removed when the bearing has packed up, I think they're about 850 from Renault (82 00 036 804), but Dave Mac prop shafts at Coventry charge about 420 for a rebuildable one, but I've not heard of them being removed over summer months. An RX4 has a viscous centre diff so the power is tranmitted to the wheels with most grip, (i.e. Not spinning) I've also heard under normal conditions the torque is split 80% front, 20% rear, so it is permanent 4WD unlike other 4x4 in this size/catagory.
