Hey yall, im new and this is my first post, my name is Ethan. I had a question regarding my 1987 john deere 160. Ever since i bought the tractor ive had this observation that the rear end bows out, down a bit. If you stand back and look at the tractor from behind, you can see how the wheels camber out. Over the weekend i pulled the wheels off to get a closer look and low and behold, the axle has a little less than 3/8ths of an inch of play up and down. I figured it was a bearing that was just worn but i didnt have the guts to just pull the rear end apart for the first time. Any help would be greatly appreciated
