Mazdamike0831 I'm a manager at autozone. Maybe it's not good to bash them as a whole because you had a bad experience. Did you know, many major repair shops use our parts to fix your cars? Our computers though not perfect are pretty accurate. 2 to 3 inches short?? That's a big difference, and the fact that you used it anyways even though it was clearly stretching? Not smart... but hey that's why they have warranties on their parts even if you mess it up... the manufacturer of your car may have made half year cars so a year older or newer is what your parts would be found under.

amc49 (shaking head).................somebody who doesn't take the old axle up to match to the new one and then b-tches about it not fitting????


A1 Cardone NEW entire pass side to trans and $50..................running fine and changed last year. Can't beat it and don't see how they made any money there.

TRevGreenSE my car broke down out of town last week and i had to use a duralast cv axle driver side. inner boot appears to be stretched as you mentioned. it works, yet now i don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but upon braking the car shakes as if a wheel bearing is bad, and a suspension knocking has occurred which appears to be a bad strut. do you think the axle is the causing this?

Djzx3 Ouch^, had that happen to me on families Subaru, but it only took 30 min to change.

K Dog I like A1 Cardone, shown in the link above.

Other than that, Ford are probably the highest quality. But they all still break. So I've been just swapping out lifetime warrantied GS-P brand axles on all of mine. $59 retail, no questions warranty coverage. i dont think I purchased a Focus axle years, but boy I've sure removed lots busted ones!!!

My latest victim:

Even Massive NA Zetecs rip prothane bushings, stock housings and axles to pieces! ;)

bringler26 I had to replace my passenger side axle from them because it didnt seal into the trans right allowing it to let the trans fluid drain.

Djzx3 So what is a good CV axle brand that doesn't pose this problem?
