Replacing axle AGAIN on my '85 Brat. Have a 3 inch lift. It's always the passenger side and I only get about a year at the most out of it. I've had the Brat for about 5 years and have only needed to replace the passenger side. when putting the knuckle back on i use the 2x4 and the BFH method. Give it a couple love taps, eyeball match it to the other side and call it good.
Now my question is if i'm off by just a C-hair not getting it pressed back on all the way could that be eating my axle at a faster rate? I know remans are crap. i know a lift will not help axle life either. last time i replaced it i was able to score a "real" axle for a bit more $$ figuring it would last longer. I'm just puzzled that it is always the passenger side. with the amount of axles i've replaced i'm pretty quick now.
