You could have a front axle spline wearing out
okay so you were right, its not the clutch at all. I put the car into 4 wheel drive today and it drives just fine but when I slip it back into two wheel drive it just spins. I really wish I would have tried this before I replaced the clutch but I am new to this game and hindsight is 20/20. Im just stoked that I put the clutch in right. Any ideas on exactly what the problem is and what my next step should be?

I'm no expert either, but that does sound like something inbetween axle and wheel-hub etc, and not in the gearbox.
Good luck! Got any parts cars near by?

"I had the car off the ground and turned the front axel by hand only the passenger side wheel would turn even though both axels turned. Is this normal or could that be part of the problem."
If this is the case it looks like the splines that connect
the driver's side axle to the hub (part that drives the wheel)
Here is a test, have the hood open, engine running, 2wd.
Stand beside the car on the driver's side and look at the axle.
Have a mate engage first gear and let out the clutch.
IF the axle turns and the car does not move, you will need a hub and an axle as the spinning has probably knackered both.
Hope this helps, good luck

Even if only one side is bad, the car will not move forward, as the bad side would be the path of least resistance.

Take a long, hard look at the axle as well as the hub, as both may be damaged.

Wow, small world huh!
unfortunatly I dont have a parts car. Hey Im pretty sure I went through waimana on my way to go hike in the urewera's. cool area for sure
Do you frequent NZ?
If you are ever in Waimana again, look out for the beige gen one brat and silver xt, The only ones in the district!
Good luck with the hub it seems!
