Re: 90 V8Q Axle

The cage is cracked, so it needs more than packing. The rest isn't bad, but
would need new balls. Axles don't seem to be Rocket science. A few different
types of CV joint parts seem to adapt to most axles, with the exception of
the V8 outer. A rebuilt sometimes can be risky, but the price is normally a
LOT better than a NEW CV. They are easy enough to replace if they go bad,
which normally is right away and under a warranty. It is a lot less of a
hassle to buy a rebuilt than buy 2 new boots and hope you get the crimp
right. Just my opinion, from a cheapo... A guy who has 4 Audis and does most
of the work himself. The ONLY way I can afford to do it on my income.
