Default made my mind

Disregard this post since i already bought and installed the complete axle. I thought the rebuild was to chancy for the time involved i wanted back on the road.

Default axles

i replaced my front passenger axle, hub and wheel bearing assembly, rotor and brakes. All parts i got from autozone

Complete axle : $59.99
Hub and wheel bearing assembly : $59.99
Hub nut socket (36mm) : $19.99
T55 socket : $3.99
T45 socket : $3.99
Rotor : $23.99

This job took me 2 hours. Pretty simple if you read the Haynes repair manual.

before you do it make sure you find out if you have ABS or not its very important when changing axles.
