Recommended Posts

Anyone in western WI on in the twin cities area who has changed there axles on there rigs. I've never done it before and wondered if anyone is willing to give me a hand. Mine is an 88 gl wagon and I want to change both sides.

 

Thanks in advance, Joe

hi,

 

not too far from you, but never done an axle swap myself...had mine done when i first got my daily driver cause i didnt have the time to try it myself, also had the clutch replaced at the same time. (mine is an 89 GL wagon, also a $150 ride!)

 

not too many of us in this general area i'm afraid. unlike the oregon/wash bunch, and the bunch out east. wish i could be of more help.

There's a member named snowstormer - lives in upper WI - who has posted quite knowledgeably on the old and new site. He seems to know his stuff, but I can't speak for him. He may have a fa,ily and/or other committments.

I'm driving from Spokane to Green Bay tomorrow. If you see this between then, give a number and we'll see if I can stop by and help you out on the way. I'd never done an Axle swap either, until today. Its not hard.
