Well after getting my 8.8 axle installed I noticed my Driver side tire is wobbling a little bit. I feel it's my axle shaft, since I know my tires didn't wobble with the 7.5. I found a how to by 04lvl2 and briefly explains how to remove the axle shafts. I feel that it won't be too hard of job and can do it my self. Here are my questions.
1. Should I buy a new one or would low miles used one be good?
2. How hard is it to replace the bearings and seals for the axle shaft?
3. Do I need to grease anything or is there any type of fluid I need to add to my axle shaft prior to installing them in the axle housing?
If there is anything you suggest for you guys that have done it let me know. I found 2 axle shafts on ebay left and right one for the 8.8 that they say have 78xxx when removed from the housing. 8.8 Explorer Axle Shafts
If its pretty simple to do I would just get a new one and just replace the one side. But if it requires me to replace seals or bearings then I would just take it to a shop and have them do it. But it will be expensive. Thanks for the help guys.
