Good reman axles
Posted 22 July 2003 - 02:16 PM
They're reman axles, but come with a BRAND NEW outer joint. (READ: Reman price, new quality)
I'm picking them up tomorrow, and they're going in next week. If they're any good, I'll find out exactly who makes and sells them.
(extra off-topic rant: It's so nice to finally be talking with a parts guy who knows what he's talking about, and not just what the computer screen says to him)

Only way to go, is to have both the inner and outer joints replaced with new. Anything less is limited mileage at best.

Some highlights from the bulletin:
- New, redesigned outer joints that are better (supposedly) than OEM joints
- New spindle nut with each axle
- Limited Lifetime Warranty
The axles I bought look pretty good. The axle shafts are turbos (3 rings), and the outer joints feel really smooth. Fit and finish seem to be better than the NAPA axles I was running before. I'm still a little skeptical about the long-term quality of these axles, but we'll see how they hold up over time. They retail for CAD$165 + $75 core, but if you know a mechanic, or have connections with a parts store, you can get them much cheaper (around $100, maybe even less)
The axles, and a brand new (i.e. not reman) clutch are going in next weekend. My wife will be the primary driver of the car, so it will be a true test of durability, as she tends to be a little harder on cars than I am.
