Hi guys I brought a LSD diff for the wagon out of a XR ute put it all in yesterday and have found out the damn passenger axle is bent. :cry:

I rang Ferntree and they want $365 buck for an axle :shock: just wondering what my other options are? Thanks guys.

Hi, you sure it is the axle that is bent, my son hit a huge pothole a little while ago in his FG turbo ute and destroyed one or the rear tyres and buckled the rim, fixed that and noticed the the wheel was getting progressivley wonkey, and thought must be a bent axle, replaced that and the bearing at great expense and after a couple of thousand k's same problem , turned out he had bent the axle housing luckily covered by insurance.

Yeah mate I have pulled the axle out and had a look there is a fair bend in the axle. But now you say that I hope the housing isn't bent also :roll:
