I need to buy new front CV axles - anyone know where to get a good deal? Thanks.
I replaced mine with OEM Motorcraft via RockAuto. Seemed to have a pretty good price.
@NMBoondocker is right you can't go wrong with OEM half shafts and Rockauto has them as a good price.
The Surtrack/Trackmotive (FD8273 - Left, FD8274 - Right) half shafts are also well built and I know several who got those because (1) the shop had them in stock no waiting and/or (2) cheap bastarding on price and no complaints at all.
And just to add, here are the oem part numbers:
AL3Z-3A428-C - Right
AL3Z-3A427C - Left
I agree, Rockauto has good prices. Bad thing is they only have one oem left in stock.
Has anyone found any good videos on the axle shaft replacement? I'm intimately familiar with IWE and shock replacement, but not sure on the complexity of the axle shaft replacement from that point. I've got a CV that keeps making a popping noise and my faith in its longevity is low. I didn't realize these things were so inexpensive. I have no issue throwing in a new axle shaft the next time I do my shocks (this summer) if it's something I can manage.
Google those above part numbers. Then find some of the oem online dealers. The pricing will be similar. But go in and figure out what the shipping is. I found a few that were a few dollars less. But it was going to cost more to ship based on location.
