Anyone in Mass or NH area have a pair
of 4 lug axles they can sell today?

My car is on the lift at the Mechanic putting
in the 3:55.. Just got a call and the bearing
area is galled on both axles..

Please let me know and I'll hop in the
car and zoom over..

Thanks,

Dan

Not the best solution, but if your car is on the lift and your dead in the water, head to your local parts store and pick up some repair bearings. They are an aluminum "cartridge" that moves the bearing inboard to use a different section of the axle's bearing surface.

I would consider them temporary, but it will get your car off the lift and home tonight. You can then search for and purchase new axles and bearings at your leisure (and install yourself too)...

I tried those and still had axle leaks. Others have told me that they didn't have good luck with them either. They're made by Timken and Auto Zone carries them for $20 each if you want to try. Repair kit I ordered USA Alloy replacement axles from Summit complete with bearings, seals and studs.

Thanks everyone! I am all set for the moment.
They are putting in the cartrige, so the heat
is off for now.

Thanks again for the phone calls!

Which is why I said I would consider them temporary...

Talk about temporary. Mine didn't make it a week and they were in the trash. I knew this risk when I bought them. I think the previous owner polished the heck out of the axles as they were 0.003 to 0.004" smaller than the replacements. Such is the case with used parts.
