Re: Why did my axle break?

I have had one break as well. I think metal fatigue is probably most likely. I was lucky they line failed in a parking lot albeit 500 miles from home. I changed it out the next morning .

Re: Brake Service Cross Shaft Reviews

Re: Transmission removal

I usually just remove the ujoint and there’s no need to remove the cross shaft. If you want to put the trans back in with u joint already installed then remove the cross shaft.
