Even if the weight of the car were enough to bend the axle (which I doubt), your chances of actually making it better are pretty slim. > Also; is axle replacement something a reasonably mechanically-inclinded > person can do in their garage?? Yes, I think so. I've had the rear axle mostly detached from my c900 two times, and it was a *much* easier job the second time for two reasons: the experience of doing it the first time, and having air tools. So if I were you, I would arm myself with a good shop manual, good tools, and much more time than you think it will take ;) John ps- also don't overlook the fact that you will have the brake line apart and will therefore need to know how to bleed the brakes -- Posted via a free Usenet account from http://www.teranews.com
