It's in a filter now so I'm not going to dig through and find it, but the crosspost obviously caught my eye. > Have you done the CV + axle? Mostly. NAPA's parts book was wrong (at least at the local) and I got one with the inner driver bearings being too big. The NAPA tech line (english speaking and in the USA which is a refreshing change) was familiar with the parts, and "yup, that won't fit and we don't have one that will". I considered doing the snapring and swap thing but... I went back to NAPA, they gave me a full refund including shipping (that last took a bit of discussion; "Well, look at it this way, why should I pay for you to ship me the wrong part so I get delayed by a week?"). The guy at NAPA mentioned A1 Driveshaft in Milwaukee as someone who can rebuild the CV. OK, fair enough. So, 62 bucks later (total!), I've got what the tell me is my same shaft back, looks brand new. And they did it in an hour. Blasted/painted the shaft, reground the ball seats, put in oversize balls, new boots, new grease, new clamps, not a speck of rust or grime anywhere on it. It's almost a shame to put it into that car. But 62 bucks and an hour...wow. Hella deal for them if you think about it, too; good business model. > Do you want to remove the cv from my 9000 > (the bnospamd) so I can change the boot? The damn thing is glued in > place :-D This one just slid out of the hub. You, er, have taken the nut off, right?
