PM me if you need help/location for install.

nos2006 I have the 2.3L w/ MTX75 5-speed. I have figured out the P/N down to this, but no further: **7Z-4026-BA

ah1f39 Ah, ok that makes more sense. What engine and trans do you have?
12-31-2012 12:11 PM
nos2006 Oh wow, my mistake. I need a new differential...
12-31-2012 12:10 PM
ah1f39 What are you calling the " driveshaft"?
12-31-2012 11:56 AM
nos2006 I just called Autozone and they said they don't carry them. Neither does Advanced, O'Reilly, or NAPA. :\

I also called the dealer who quoted it at $422, but they wouldn't give me a part number...

rsnow passenger side always comes out easier, drivers side takes a pop with a prybar, and the above comment is correct when installing.

elsolo the wheel bearing suggestion was only if you had to hammer the heck out the the axle to get it out of the hub, using the bearing as an anvil.
