Replacement passenger side axle

What axles and where are you high hp focuses getting replacement axles. I need the passenger side axle assembly mine has a bit of play in it at the mid cv joint. Rattles when I hit small multiple bumps. I went to the dealer and they want almost $400 for just that side. Which to me is nuts seeing as you can buy after market axles for $500 for both.

I think you are talking about the carrier bearing. Its the axle or Bearing connected to the axle and Engine brace on the Pax side. I would try rock auto. The bearing is $30, the axle is $50

$ 500 $ PPPSSHHHHHH

Sounds like carrier bearing. Easy fix. Stock motor craft ones are good. But you want custom contact fernando.

No its the cv joint that connects the mid axle to the outer. Ive already found the problem. My only concern with rock auto parts is that the aftermarket parts wont be as good as oem or as strong.

Cardone is the brand you want on rockauto

They have "Cardone Select" and "A-1 Cardone". Cardone Select is suppose to be brand new to oem spec........yadayawho.knows

You want A-1 Cardone. That is a rebuilt/remanufactured Ford motorcraft axle.

I also believe the one you buy from ford will be a reman as well.
I would not hesitate getting the A-1 Cardone, pretty easy install and 10% of the price. It might be the only american company on Rock auto.

I'm also having a sound in my axle after I back out of my drive way and then go forward. Its always two clunks and then never does it again until next time im in my driveway. I just don't know which side it is tho, im hoping this isn't anything in my new transmission/Torsen, since i installed it myself. (1st time doing it)

Any axle will probably work just fine. Most are just rebuilt stock ones anyways. But that being said I've bought axles from the "parts stores" with holes in the damn boots. So before you install whatever brand you get make sure you check the boots for holes lol
